Tinder’s “Year in Swipe” is here—and “situationships” are 2022’s top trend. 

Dec 02 2022

Tinder’s “Year in Swipe” is here—and “situationships” are 2022’s top trend. Gen Z and Millennials have officially coined the term “situationship” and are continuing to make them mainstream. The term refers to “when you’re not quite dating someone, but you’re not just sleeping with them either”—a sticky situation that is kind of intended to be that way. Tinder’s in-app survey among users 18-24-years-old in the U.K., U.S., and Australia done last month shows that “1 in 10 respondents prefer ‘situationships’ as a way to develop a relationship with less pressure.” Tinder also noticed a 49% jump in members adding the term to their profile status from January to October this year. YPulse’s Dating & Relationships report shows that fewer young people are using dating apps to find serious relationships and 52% of 18-24-year-olds say they use dating apps for fun, or just to pass the time.

Millennial and Gen Z women are more likely to ask for pay raises than previous gens. 

Dec 02 2022

Millennial and Gen Z women are more likely to ask for pay raises than previous gens. YPulse’s What’s Next For Work trend report found that salary is by far the most important thing when it comes to Gen Z’s perfect job, and the majority say they deserve to make more money. Specifically, young women in the workplace are not shy to ask for what they want to earn, and new research shows it’s paying off (literally). According to a global survey by HR firm Randstad, Gen Z and Millennial workers “are far more likely to ask for—and expect—pay raises and cost-of-living increases amid raging inflation.” McKinsey’s 2022 Women in the Workplace Study also shows that 66% of women under 30-years-old want to become senior executives. Three-quarters of them say that “flexibility is more important to them now, and 68% say their company’s commitment to well-being matters more than ever before.” (Fast Company)

New research suggests that Gen Z is on track to become the most charitable generation yet. 

Dec 02 2022

New research suggests that Gen Z is on track to become the most charitable generation yet. According to Classy’s new “Why America Gives” report, Gen Z and Millennial donors “reported being almost two and a half times as likely to increase their donations this year compared to 2021.” Gen Z specifically is more likely to donate to the causes they support simply because they feel it’s the right thing to do. These top causes include the “environment and animals, health and disaster relief.” Plus, they’re redefining how they like to donate, like giving to more individuals and “grassroots-type movements” over established charities. Almost half (43%) say they have given to a personal cause on platforms like GoFundMe this year. YPulse’s Causes/Charity & Activism report shows that 49% of young people have donated money to a charity organization this year—and most believe that their generation can make the biggest difference in the world when it comes to social change. (Forbes)

Taylor Swift has become a major part of Millennial weddings. 

Dec 02 2022

Taylor Swift has become a major part of Millennial weddings. YPulse’s Music report data shows that 74% of Millennials say music defines who they are—and for Millennial Swifties, that’s especially true. For many Millennial women, 32-year-old Taylor Swift was creating songs about life milestones at the same time they were going through them. For example, her iconic breakup songs like “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” debuted on her album Red in 2012, when many young Millennial women were experiencing their first breakups. Now that she’s settled with her long-time boyfriend, her love songs on albums Lover and Midnights have become a part of many Millennials’ wedding day soundtracks. They’re choosing her songs to walk down the aisle, have their first dance, dance with their parents, and upload #WeddingTok content. (Today)

Millennials in Japan are sharing their culture’s traditional health benefits worldwide. 

Dec 02 2022

Millennials in Japan are sharing their culture’s traditional health benefits worldwide. According to The Japan Tea Export Promotion Council, “matcha [green tea] accounted for nearly 70 percent of its $94 million in tea exports between January and August 2022.” Japan has a deep-rooted history in the health benefits of tea, going back thousands of years, but now it’s going mainstream across the globe. Over the last several years, there’s been an increased interest in Japanese teas including matcha and sencha among Millennial foodies. A 2021 review of matcha found that, “with regular consumption, the beverage might support the body’s efforts to maintain health and prevent disease…[and] have effects such as improved memory and cognitive function and reduced stress and inflammation.” (Newsweek)
