It's that time of year where lots of us are getting sick so we have to do what's necessary not to get those around us sick.

USA Today surveyed Americans on the lengths they'd go to avoid getting sick and how they prevent their significant others from getting them sick.

  1. 54% avoid kissing their partner
  2. 31% wash their hands more often before touching them
  3. 16% avoid sleeping in the same bed
  4. 17% cancel date plans
  5. 39% frequently avoid getting intimate which means 61% of us don't care. We'd rather risk it.

In addition, the survey found that more than half of us (55%) use hand sanitizer after shaking someone's hand and 66% of us would give up social media and alcohol to avoid getting sick.
