ave you ever dated someone born in a different generation than your own? Check out each of them below, started with the youngest group of daters in their early to mid-20s...
It turns out that there some big differences between the generational cohorts, and bethesmartwife.com, says that they have nothing to do with the magazines they subscribe to or discounts available to them on dates.

Now, as we reach our 60s and 70s, we are also one of the most sought after demographics for companies selling everything from cruises and retirement homes to makeup and clothing.
