You know you’re not going to die from a cold or the flu. But that doesn’t change the fact that it sure feels like you will when it’s happening! A partner really shows his true colors when you are sick. Anybody can be a rockstar boyfriend when their girlfriend is energized, perky, up for sex, and willing to help make dinner.
