Dr. Ruth is worried about you.
In her new, fourth edition of Sex for Dummies, the world’s most renowned sex therapist, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, has devoted an entire chapter to the overwhelming loneliness of millennials. And she is out to show them all how to end it.
“We have to sound a warning,” she says. “I’m worried about the loneliness of young people, I’m worried they are not developing long term relationships. And I believe planning a short vacation can help cement their relationships.”
To further her cause, she’s partnered with discount travel mavens Hotwire.com to help promote the idea of a “quickie” — short vacations a couple, either new or established, can take to make their relationship better and stave off loneliness. We chatted with Dr. Ruth, and she explained why these types of trips are so important, and gave free advice on how to make the most of them.
