Marriage among 30-somethings also dropped 10 percentage points during that decade, while the percentage living together rose from 7 to 13 percent. More than half of the millennials surveyed by Pew characterize their own cohort as self-absorbed.“Trying to live with somebody else and putting their needs first is more difficult when you have been raised to put yourself first,” says San Diego State University psychologist Jean Twenge, who studies generational differences.Fisher’s model of how mating works is that we have evolved three different brain systems for it: The sex drive, intense feelings for romantic love and a desire for deep attachment.These primal systems fly under the radar of our rational, “thinking” cortex and limbic system, which is linked to emotion, she explains.Choice Overload and Slow Love Besides general cultural attitudes, there’s another force working against millennials looking for lasting love: The perception of an abundance of mate choice.The “choice overload” phenomenon was immortalized in the psychology literature by a 2000 paper by Columbia Business School professor Sheena Iyengar and Stanford psychologist Mark Lepper.She points to a culture of individualism as a major factor in preventing millennials from committing.She also cites a growing cultural ideal that you don’t need a partner in life in order to be happy.

Millennials also live with their parents longer than those from the previous generation, “and when you’re living with Mom and Dad, you’re not really going to be able to have your Tinder screw-buddy come over,” she notes.We stood in the warm Southern California night under suburban streetlights: Myself and a bespectacled entertainment writer/director with a boyish face, whom I met on Tinder.Dinner had started off strong, with talk of sci-fi over salads, but quickly unraveled around issues of life goals and values.Millenials were most accepting of premarital sex out of all the generations polled.But millennials also had fewer partners than Gen Xers, born between 19, and more closely resembled the Baby Boomers, born between 19.
