i’ve been told many times i was.
personally – besides lack of cell phones and facebook i think i would’ve been better suited in the 50’s, because i am more traditional.
i don’t want to work, i’m getting married young, and i would love to have kids right away. i don’t mind cooking or cleaning, and i LOVE barbershop quartets.
although this morning the huge amount of waves i woke up with on my head did suggest i belong to like, the hippy sixties or something 😛
based on your personality, what era would you put yourself in if you had to?

I would’ve loved to have lived in the 60’s.

I’d never want to be alive in any era prior to the invention of tampons.

if i had to choose an era, outside of ours, i’m definitely a 50s girl. FI and i just talked about this after we watched the biography on Sam Walton (the founder of Wal-Mart)…
i am definitely more traditional, conservative, and i just love that ‘suburban’ happy-go-lucky lifestyle. LOL. i love to cook, i’m nuturing, and i def fit that “stay at home” mom profile… (although i am working fulltime adn going to law school and wont have kids for at least five years) 😛

VirginiaMarie you crack me up!!
I would also be from the 50’s I guess… I’m not marrying young, but that’s for the lack of meeting my DH young. I definitely always dreamed of beint a stay at home mom who does all the cooking and leave the cleaning to a professional! 😉

In terms of women’s rights, I probably wouldn’t want to be living in any time other than now.

As a woman, any movement into the past would mean more restrictions. Eff that.

i spent much of my teen years lamenting that fact that i didn’t live in the 60s or 70s. i just KNEW i was in the wrong generation! i love mod dresses and 60s british invasion music! at the same time i love disco floors and mellow 70s. either would have worked for me. 🙂

I would say 1920’s. I love the style of 1920’s-1940’s. I loved the excitement of the 20’s everything was a party. The 20’s were pretty much a non stop dance fest. Also I liked that Women’s Rights were getting a really big push forward women were chopping off their hair and wearing more masculine lines and asking for fair wages, and to vote. It would have been very exciting back then. Fighting the good Fight.

ALL THE TIME.
I think I should have been born around 1935, I’d get married in the 50’s and have lots of babies, but then I’d also be right in there with first wave feminism and burning my bras!
But, if I was born in 1935 chances are I’d be dead and/or have killed my mother when I was born, emergency caesarean baby here!

@Virginia – I can’t believe you said that! Every time my friends say they would love to live in a different era I say, “PADS. ON. BELTS. That is enough to prevent me from ever going back in time.” HA!

@ceamoste: I totally agree! I voted for the 50s because I too am more traditional. Sometimes it’s a bit lonely to always be in the minority about certain things.

I would have loved to be a stay at home mom in the 50’s. Wearing the beautiful dresses….having a martini made and ready for hubby at the end of the day. Things just seemed to be so much simpler then. Now, the expectation is for women to work full time, go to school, raise the kids, cook, clean…..it’s exhausting at times…….
