Most Helpful Guy
This guy wants what he wants when he wants it. If he was really in love, he would not only wait for your illness to pass, he would be waiting on you hand/foot to make you better.
You didn't plan this as a test but he surely FAILED it and raises the BIG question will he do this again? I vote yes. If you become in a life/death situation, can he be counted on to help save you? I vote no.
The other gal deserves him and has been forewarned he will do the same to her someday... she deserves such treatment, since it's doubtful she was blind to her contributions in these matters.
Whatever he speaks hereafter will only be words designed to get you back in bed.
