    My parents are from that wave also, born in 1963 and 1964 and they are very different from late boomers born between 1955 and 1960. Part of this come from the fact that their situations toward sex and employement during their late teens - early twentys were dramatically diferent. My father said to me that he remember when he was 16 and AIDS started to rise. Plus Xers of the first wave turned 18 after the 1979 energy crisis and so became young adult when the period of economic prosperity was behind them while late boomer are old enough to have benefited for several years of the "Golden Age of Sex" (1970s) and of favorable economic situations that early Xers did'nt know or barely. There's really a break here.

    That's fascinating! I am GenX. 5th wave, and my roommate is Gen Y, Second wave, and I see a ton of differences even though it's only eight years. Though one of my good friends is only a couple of years older than him. I guess it depends on the individual.

    This actually explains why I neither identify with X (I was a bit too late) not with Y (I was too early).
    I hears that!

    I'm on the ass-end of Generation X too, fifth wave. I don't often feel myself relating to Generation X or Y either.

    My brother is nine years older and he identifies as Gen-X. He fondly remembers the experiences of Rubix cubes, Commodore 64, boom boxes, break dancing on flattened cardboard boxes, hair metal, Reagan, etc in the 80s. While I remember these things, I was so young that it doesn't seem to apply to me. I sometimes latch on to these things because I remember so vividly and I talk about it, but it doesn't feel like it's part of my coming of age experience .

    But I talk to those who identify primarily as Gen-Y and they talk about growing up watching 'All That' on Nickelodeon, having a SNES as their first gaming system, dial-up internet, beepers, etc. Again, I remember these things but they sort of came up after I felt I had matured or what have you.

    It almost feels like a handful of years got lost in transition somewhere and those of us born in those years wind up vaguely latching on to the popular nostalgia of the generations before or after. I suppose we have Grunge rock to ourselves? The whole "Where were you when you found out Kurt Cobain died?" thing.

    Oh, and we'll always have the O.J. Simpson trial. Yay.

    My mom is a boomer who came up in the 60s and I swear to god her and her friends that came up in the same time are like perpetual teenagers or something. My mom is in her 60s but she plays video games more than I do and now she's all up in watching tons of Science Fiction shows. Her friends are similar, I sort of think her generation will never stop 'being young' if that makes sense (I'm not saying this is a bad thing).

    I don't know if it's across the board, but I also find that people my own age with boomer parents tend to have parents that were pretty laissez-faire about parenting. A bunch of free love hippies that taught us to talk, walk, eat, and go to the bathroom ourselves and after that they were like "Be free! Do what you like!", haha. Like our moms and dads basically just toted us all along on whatever journey they were on at the time and didn't even think to plan on bringing snacks or any of that. Nothing near the over-parenting that takes place these days at any rate.

    Love this thread btw!
