I've noticed the difference between Asians and Americans on TV series (may be they are difference between individuals not difference between cultures but still :P)
So this was the scene that I found very interesting...
If a guy call his gf and she sounds really sick so he asks her
" do you need anything? do you want me to come over?"
and if she says "no i'm fine.. I will just sleep it off"
in Asian TV series, a guy still come by with medicine/soup and stay up late taking care of her even if she said she was fine...LOL
but in American TV series, since girl said she was fine, he didn't visit her or anything LOL. He only visits/takes care of her, when she says she's not well
It is really weird, isn't it?
and I've heard from my friend who used to date both Asian and American guys and she told me it is somewhat true.
Do you think it is a cultural difference? (so if you date an American guy, you have to be straight with your guy, don't trick him or give him an opposite sign.. if you want him to visit you, then tell him to visit you? LOL)
So what do you usually do when you find out your gf/bf is sick?
do you think it is really cultural difference? or it is another misunderstanding of mine :P?

My ex used to get sick a lot and I always wanted to come to his place and help him out or keep him company but he always told me not to, to the extent where he gave in once and then got pissed that i came over because he "needed his rest" (even though we just watched a movie and chilled) so I've strayed far away from the sickness territory since then - which sucks because I'm a pretty nurturing person.
As for me getting sick he refused to see me when I was sick because he "couldn't afford to get sick".. thus why we are no longer together1
