The icon Ruth Westheimer – colloquially as Dr. Ruth known – shared some pearls of wisdom on cultivating relationships during the pandemic during “Anderson Cooper Full Circle” tonight.
“When you have someone you like, say, ‘Thank god I’m in a relationship that has survived these difficult times,'” she said.
The legendary sex and relationships expert followed Cooper from home on an episode of “You and Your Quarantine,” in which she answered questions from viewers how to deal with this unprecedented time of loneliness and isolation.
“Don’t be such a pessimist,” she warned Cooper, imagining that the Covid-19 pandemic could last for many months, or maybe even years.
The 92-year-old encouraged Cooper to be in attendance for his new son, Wyatt.
“Despite the fact that you are busy, despite the fact that you are brilliant and famous, [you have an obligation] Taking time off just to be with this little baby, “Westheimer preached, adding,” The core of survival is the early years of socialization. ”
As for love in the age of Covid-19? Westheimer does not rule that out for himself.
“Who knows? I might even find a man,” she said.
“Hey, you know? It’s 2020, anything can happen,” said Cooper.
