Well, if I had been born earlier, or later, I would have never met my best friend since we wouldn't have been in the same grade all those years back...So no. She has become a large part of my world <3.

I probably would go with either far later or far earlier. For far later I would probably pick a date anywhere between 2090-2290. It also would be nice to be born a little earlier. I could see history for myself. I'd probably pick to be born in 1890s Europe. With WW1 on the horizon I'd be able to shed my blood for the German Empire. A country I love so much.

idk, I like the year I was born. I like my friends and I most definitely love my girlfriend. I don't mind being a 1996 baby.

I wouldn't change years, but I'd want to be born earlier in the year. My birthday is at the end of the year, so I'm always the youngest of my peers, which can be a bit annoying xP

I like the year I was born, but if I had to choose, then either in the early 90's, Japan before modernization, or Renaissance Italy so that I can be an assassin with Ezio's Brotherhood!

To grow up by being born in the 60s or 70s would have been a hell of a trip! :D

Though I would probably NEVER want to be born later than the early 90s. I was born 1991. That's at the limit.

I think I'm happy with the time I was born. Maybe later on would be better but since we're living in a time where a lot of technological advancements are taking place, I think it's neat to see all these changes happening before my eyes.

This for me is a BIG maybe... You see I really wouldn't of minded to be born say 100 or even 1000 years in the future. It bugs me that I'll be gone by the time we colonize another planet, land in another solar system, or actually find alien life(and don't say there is no alien life, that is statistically impossible). If I was, say, born 300 years from now, we'd probably have already started the colonization part. There's so much out there to see and it's sad knowing that I'm going to go out right before we actually start seeing it. On the other side of the pond, this version of me that's typing this wouldn't have ever existed, and I fancy existence.

I don't know, honestly. It seems some of my problems might have been avoided if I was born say, four years before I was. The whole moving away from my friends right before high school, and thus shutting down emotionally for the next five or six years. But then again, probably still would have happened one way or the other. I definitely wouldn't have wanted to have been born later. I don't think I'd remember life before the internet if I were, and that seems an important thing to know. Part of me says, "Man just go waaay back, to a time when there was sword fights! It would be fun." but the realistic part of me is like, yeah that probably wouldn't be as much fun as it seems. And I'd miss indoor plumbing.

I don't like to think this type of questions, because we can't change, but for me I never going to have other day, because if was early I going to live the problems my country pass or more early going to be equal to less hygiene so I'm pretty happy living now in the age where bathrooms inside te house is normal. But later I don't want because it's going to mean I going to lost every cool thing that happens when I was a kid and I don't give up this days.

If I could pick, it would probably be somewhere between 1940-1965. Can't really pick an exact year. (I was actually born in 1994)

Soon after discovering the internet for myself, I've always felt I should have been born around 15 years earlier (Around 1980).
I've often just sat and moped about it on the worst occasions in the past few years, I admit to say...

I'd have liked to have been born about 6 years before I actually was. I feel that I act a little older than people my age sometimes, and that I'd fit in better with older kids.
If I had to pick a specific time though, I'd probably say the 1940's. Because that'd be awesome.
