Guys, do you want to be looked after when you're not feeling well?

My boyfriend has the stomach flu and he's just plain miserable. Whenever I'm sick he usually stays with me and looks after me, especially if I'm throwing up. He's a proud guy so he won't typically ask for help, but do you guys like when your girlfriend takes care of you when you're sick? I don't want to hover but he's so uncomfortable so I just want to be with him and rub his back but I don't want to embarrass him.

    • Haha yep. But he's done his fair share of comforting and hair holding along the way, so I kind of owe him- when he's cleaned up your puke and doesn't break up with you, you know it's love I reckon bahaha

  • Yeah actually that would be nice, I don't get often like rarely ever, but when do I'm often sick as a dog so it would help if I didn't have to do everything myself when I feel like crap.

  • I absolutely want some looking after when I'm not feeling well, but I understand some guys have a lot of pride and hesitate to show when they are hurting or weak, especially in front of people they really care about. He may not want to be "mothered" by you, he might just want company, or maybe some help with chores that he isn't really up to doing

    • Yeah I kind of opted to just do it instead of waiting for him to ask. He's always a tough guy but nobody likes throwing up and plus he always holds my hair when I'm sick without complaining so he's earned this one hahaha

  • Simply ask him if its okay that you come over.
    That way he can say no if he's embarrassed but still say yes if he's ok with it.

  • I would want someone to take care of me when I'm ill. Especially if it was my girlfriend. A lot of the time there is a sort of macho culture in men. They may be a bit proud but if you persist, they'll get used to it and do
