Did you know that 63% of college-aged men and 83% of women want to be in a traditional relationship? And 70% of Millennials want to get married?

Given these numbers, why is it that so many relationships fail? Why do so many of us ride the rollercoaster of ups and downs in dating? What’s the secret to finding love?

I’m Dr. Rachel Vanderbilt, and I’m a scientist specializing in the study of romantic relationships. I’m thrilled to be the new host of the Relationship Doctor podcast. If you listened to the previous season of this show, stick around: this season is going to bring you even more advice on how to make your relationship successful - advice that is always grounded in real science.

Researchers have been studying relationships in America since the 1950s. And I’m here to sift through all that data and give you the truth about what works and what doesn’t - and why!

I bet you’ve often heard that conflict is the sign of a bad relationship; that secrets are always harmful in a marriage; that you should experience “the spark” with someone instantly, otherwise they aren’t worth pursuing.

Turns out, none of these are true!

Each week on the Relationship Doctor podcast we will get to the bottom of all your questions - and debunk a lot of myths. My advice will be based in science, not hearsay. And we will tackle the full spectrum of relationships without judgment or fear.

So please join me every week on the Relationship Doctor podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen. New episodes every Monday starting August 2.
