WASHINGTON EXAMINER - July 15 - Generation Z is a group comprised of individuals born between 1995 and 2015. They grew up in an age when boredom could be solved instantaneously by unlocking their smartphones. Instead of going on dates, Gen Zers swipe through Tinder, exchange Snapchats, and send direct messages on Instagram. In fact, the average American adult swipes through dating apps for ~77 minutes each day. Instead of building longer-term connections with romantic partners, Gen Zers build hundreds of surface-level connections with their followers, creating relationships that are empirically less fulfilling than the more serious relationships undertaken by older generations. They have become increasingly stressed and isolated.
