  • The other day I overheard two young women discussing relationships. From what I gathered, people their age (mid 20s) don't date the way I've always understood dating. Instead, they go through a progression of stages.

    If I have this correct, first you "talk with" a person over a period of time, then you move into "hanging out." After that comes "going out" and then I think you move into "being in a relationship."

    I'm so 53.

    Currently, I'm reading a book about generational differences, "Mind the Gap!" It describes and defines five generations of people alive today:
