What Guys Want When They Are Sick

When your lover is sick, whether it’s a simple cold or a stomach bug, you’ll want to look after him and console him. He might be exaggerating and acting like a huge baby, but if you go out of your way to help him, you’ll get significant brownie points. Because when a man is unwell, all he wants is to be molly coddled. Even if he’s behaving like he’s got the plague when it’s just a slight cold, indulge him and pamper him.

Visit him at home to give him a tissue, fluff his pillow, or take his temperature. You could have your mother make your favorite soup for him, or you could drop by with the class notes. Simply be there for him, and he will be grateful that you went out of your way to assist and care for him.

What to say to a guy when he’s sick?

When your lover is sick, what can you do to help him? It turns out you have a lot of choices! From considerate essentials to a relaxing massage to an extravagant care package, you’re sure to find something for him on our list.

Stock His Medicine Cabinet

He may believe he’s too tough for cough medicine. And he might not feel well enough to go out and get some ibuprofen. However, carrying some basic OTC pharmaceutical supplies is a good idea. Take it upon yourself to make this happen by going to the pharmacy and purchasing the appropriate medication for his symptoms. Get the right dosage for him and give it to him with a glass of water—and make sure he takes it. Simply being present will help to calm him down.

Send Him Messages That Show Him You Care

Consider how to make your ill partner feel better by text if you’re in a long-distance relationship. You can text to show him you care even if you’re in the same town and merely keeping your distance while he’s contagious.

Texting will undoubtedly make a difference if he’s a guy who needs words of affirmation. Even if he isn’t, the considerate things you say will be appreciated. For both of you, texting might be a pleasant and entertaining distraction. Simply be yourself and as reassuring as you can.

  • Please know that even though I’m not with you, I’ll be thinking about you all day and praying you feel better soon.
  • When I’m not with you, I feel so empty! Please get better as soon as possible so that we can reunite.
  • My heart hurts just thinking about you being unwell in bed. I sincerely hope you begin to feel well soon.
  • I just sent you a video of a dog sneezing that I thought you might enjoy. I hope it brings a smile to your face.
  • I’d send you limitless Xs and Os right now if hugs and kisses were medication.
  • Don’t get me wrong: you still look adorable while you’re sick, but you look far better when you’re healthy. For the sake of both of us, get better soon!
  • Sorry if this is overly sentimental, but I’d go to any length to help you feel better.
  • I suppose even bugs and bacteria are drawn to someone as lovely as you. I adore you. Soon you’ll be feeling better!
  • How contagious are you on a scale of 1 to 10? I’m just curious if I should put on a mask when I come over.

You can send him helpful texts like the following if you’re able to travel to see him or if you already reside close by:

  • What is now bothering you the most? Allow me to inquire around to see if anyone has any suggestions for making you feel better.
  • Do you want to watch a movie marathon? Choose three of your favorites, and we’ll watch them together.
  • Do you require additional tissues? Medicine? Gatorade? I’ll bring everything you need over if you send me a list.

Texts are excellent, but you can also send a message that will stay with him long after he has recovered. When your lover looks at anything like this charming I Love You souvenir or this book about how he’s the best, he’ll know you care.

How do you make a sick man happy?

First and foremost, medicine. Why do so many men despise the idea of really taking medicine? It’s an age-old question. Guys, in my experience, are hesitant to take medicine that will make them feel better, let alone go out and purchase it. That’s why it’s up to you to go to the pharmacy, get whatever medication best addresses his symptoms, and then deliver the pills to him with a glass of water.

Soup, too! There’s a reason soup is known as the “cure-all” ill food. If you’re close with his mother and want to make it even more soothing, ask her for the recipe she used when he was a youngster. You don’t have to tell him you did it; the familiar flavor will make him feel even more cared for.

Make a movie night out of it. The catch is that he gets to make each and every selection. Good luck, sister.

Give him a relaxing massage. Consider how fantastic a massage from you feels while he’s in peak physical condition, then double that by a trillion when he’s weak, fatigued, and unable to move a muscle. If possible, use a eucalyptus-scented oil to assist him breathe more easily. He’ll be sure you have magical hands by the end of the massage.

As much as possible, empathize. Men, in general, are unable to cope with pain or illness in the same manner that women do. We have to give birth, after all. They don’t even know half of what’s going on. It’s fine if he’s curled up in bed, mumbling about how he thinks he’s hallucinating, even if you’d be hitting SoulCycle and remodelling your bathroom if you had his symptoms.

Prepare a care package for him. Your partner will appreciate the gesture whether you’re long-distance or share an apartment. Fill it with his favorite chocolates, the softest blanket and socks you can locate, and something entertaining, such as a deck of cards. If you present the whole thing in a sexy outfit, you’ll get bonus points. And it brings me to my next point…

__Distract him with sex; he’ll probably be into it as long as he’s not on the verge of death. It’s similar to how when you have cramps and start performing the deed, you instantly forget about it for a while. The best medicine is sex.

Do guys like attention when they are sick?

Bill, a publisher, explains, “It’s a rejuvenation process.” “The boardroom, the office, and the power breakfasts are all behind us.” We succumb to what our bodies and psyches tell us we need, and they tell us that physical and mental well-being are more important than another contract, another sale.”

So sickness is, paradoxically, a healing practice; we may relinquish control for a while. Without being self-pitying, we can tell our partner how much stress we’ve been under. It’s a Morse code of sniffles and coughs that says, ‘Hey, I’ve been breaking my neck for the last six weeks.’

But it’s much more than just having a day off. Let’s face it, regardless of the medical disease, males occasionally use their illness to attract female attention. It’s difficult, if not impossible, for many men to come out and ask for the pampering they desire.

“Men don’t like to be labeled as dependent, even though most of us are in some form,” Frank, an architect, adds. “We can’t ask for help since it’s a sign of weakness,” says the narrator.

Because being a male isn’t intended to be about weakness, frailty, or reliance, there are times when sickness becomes our quiet language. It may be the only method for some of us to express how much we want and need to be cared for.

Men, above all, want to be convinced that they are loved and wanted, that they will be cherished even if they are helpless. “You’ll think to yourself, ‘Sure, you love me while I’m strong and capable,” Bill adds, ‘but will you still love me when I’m weak and dependent?’ Men must figure this out.”

Of course, not all guys are the same, and some utilize disease as a weapon in their emotional arsenal to gain affection on a regular basis. When my friend Bob wants his wife’s attention, he conjures up any illness he can think of. Back discomfort and stomach problems are two of the most common complaints. Of course, he’d rather not confess it, but the aim is to get his wife to pamper him. To the untrained eye, it is clear that illness plays a significant role in their relationship; it permits them to alternate between the roles of mother and son on a regular basis. And no one seems to notice their child-parent impersonation. Bob, after all, is ill.

In fact, many partnerships appear to be based in part on such dependent hypochondria, in which one partner is continually having his or her aches and pains catered to by the other.

But, doesn’t it take two to tango? A lady is generally there to relieve the anguish for every male who falls at the first indication of a sore throat. “I instinctively adopt the let-me-make-it-better woman’s position that my mother played,” Mae, a fashion designer, explains.

“When your man is sick, your heart just rips,” Randi says. All of your maternal instincts come out, and that’s probably what keeps the concept of women as Florence Nightingales alive.”

Of course, today’s women expect their men to reciprocate when it comes to caring for them when they are sick. The call is answered by a large number of males. When Mae was recently ill, she claims her beau, Tom, was “amazing.” He looked after me completely. He went out and bought VCR movies, tucked me in, fed me; he took care of everything. It was fantastic. It seemed like I was at home, with my mother looking after me.”

It’s time to dig further if a man claims that he can’t reciprocate the nursing that his mate has given him. Men who are unconcerned about their partners’ pain are typically self-centered in all parts of their lives. When they’re unwell, however, keep an eye on them since they’ll argue that no one is suffering more than they are. Even if you get appendicitis when he’s sick with a cold, your anguish will pale in comparison to his.

Any woman who believes she has found a sensitive man should be wary of this. If he can’t be there for her when she needs him the most, she should reassess her male choices.

Some women are taken aback by the fact that males can give as much as they receive. When it comes to tending to ailments, both their own and others’, women have traditionally been presented as the more capable sex. “If you ask doctors, I’m sure they’ll say they see considerably more women for a range of medical issues,” Randi observes. But I believe this is mostly due to the fact that women are more likely than men to seek medical treatment.

“However, I can’t suffer in silence,” she continues. I enjoy having my hair touched and being assured that everything will be fine.”

Because everyone feels this way, when a cold or muscle ache arrives, the patient’s reaction is typically indicative of something more than disease, something greater and distinct from what comes from the heart.

I’m fortunate in that I rarely get sick. The other day, I felt a discomfort in my lower back and decided to consult an expert—my wife.

“Sweetie,” I called her. “It’s weird, but it hurts when I bend forward to type.” It’s still hurting when I lie down.”

“No, not at all.” I’m only passing through. I’m having trouble sitting up straight. “I’m also thirsty as hell.”

“It’s no longer there.” It was consumed by me. I was considering purchasing some more. If I’m able to move. Ouch!”

“Stay put.” Continue to stand where you are. I’ll give you a call back. I have three employees in my office, and I have a client presentation to prepare for.”

This morning, I couldn’t even walk to the newsstand. And maybe a couple of Foster’s lager cans? And, I don’t know, aspirin or Advil, whichever you choose. I’m not sure if I’m hot or not, but I’m not sure if I’m feverish. You’re aware of my temperament.”

I started to feel a lot better. My back throbbed a little less, despite how tender it was. Willpower, common sense, and a thorough understanding of my body kept me from sliding into the pit of powerlessness that so many guys seem unable to escape. Babies. I’m the one who summons them.

I’m at ease. I’ve made it through again again. What’s to stop you? My wife will be here in a few minutes with the paper, Foster’s, and some fudge cake. I’ve never felt better in my entire life.

How can I make my boyfriend feel better?

If you just learned about love from movies and television, you’d assume it was all about males making swoony confessions like Lloyd Dobler with his boom box or Andrew Lincoln with those cue cards in Love Actually.

Knowing a person’s face, learning how their eyes shine when they’re joyful, how they prefer to be caressed when they’re sad, happy, or turned on, and how to navigate through disagreement together are all examples of love in real life.

James M. Sama compiled an entertaining list for men on the tiny things that make women happy and how to make them happy. I believe the same is true for men. And whether you’re married or just starting out, if you have a decent man to adore, he deserves to feel the same way.

Compliment him.

Where did we obtain the idea that only women want to be told they’re pretty, smell nice, are smart, or sexy?

I’ve always assumed that men are more confident in their appearance and sex appeal than women. Guys are supposed to be unconcerned about what they wear or whether or not their new haircut looks good, right?

That’s a load of nonsense! I’ve never encountered a man who didn’t give a damn if the woman he loved found him attractive. So tell him when you see him and get that tickle of oh my my, you’re so hot.

It’s simple: whenever anything positive comes to mind, tell him. Tell him his old beat-up tee shirt makes him look gorgeous. When you hug him, tell him how much you enjoy smelling his neck.

Tell him you appreciate what he does for you and your family.

If your partner works outside the home, express your gratitude for his efforts. Even if he enjoys his job, I’m sure there are days when he fantasizes about quitting, cursing at his employer, or simply hiding in his office all day. He, on the other hand, does not do it. You and your family could be a part of the problem.

Winning money is a huge burden for everyone, but society emphasizes it more more for men. Unfortunately, their monetary potential is frequently linked to their social worth. As bad as it is, it’s made worse when we don’t understand the stress guys are under and the effort they put in.

Your partner is sacrificing for your family if he works at home with the kids. As much as he presumably enjoys being a stay-at-home parent, every parent has moments when they want to throw in the towel (or diaper), rage at the boss (the baby? ), or hide in a corner. They don’t, however! They’re in there all day, elbow-deep in something disgusting and caring for the kids.

It’s simple: tell him you understand how difficult his job is. Tell him how much you appreciate it and how much you admire his dedication. It’s not about the money, whether it’s yours or his; it’s about recognizing something that most people take for granted.

Make time for things to get hot in the bedroom.

No, he’s not a sex god, but the best sex is transcendent, reciprocal, linked, passionate, and dreamy, so make sex sacred and intense for both of you. Making him feel like your personal sex god, and him reciprocating, will almost certainly make both of your lives better.

Nobody owes their spouse sex, but in a healthy relationship, developing desire is a good thing. If you’re having trouble getting into sex-god or goddess mode at home, consider spending the night in a hotel room. If that’s not an option, a tent in the woods can be just as enjoyable. If that works for you, you can talk about dreams or look at sensual photographs together at home, such as the diverse selection in Dr. Timaree’s NSFW library.

Alternatively, you may shoot some boudoir shots of yourself. Don’t want to expose your entire body or go too racy? Close-ups of a sexy but not-so-obvious body part are a good idea. The top of your undies poking out from your jeans at the hip, your bra strap on your shoulder. There are numerous sources of inspiration available.

It’s simple: feed your passion for him. Choose to fantasize about him, about a time when you were together, or about your favorite feature of his body. Then heap all of your desire on him the next time you have a chance to be alone with him.

Be supportive of his alone time.

To be honest, this was the most difficult for me. I’m not sure why, but I used to resent how much time Ivan spent surfing or riding his mountain bike when we first started dating. We were both working, we didn’t see each other very much, and I felt as if I had been forgotten.

That was an unfair amount of strain to place on my husband. We gradually figured out how to organize our alone time, and I took advantage of his willingness to accommodate my need to exercise, write, or simply read in bed.

Unless he’s so engrossed in his alone time that you’ve vanished off his radar, your independence is a good thing! If you’re concerned about how long he’ll be gone, simply schedule a time for him to return and make arrangements with him for later. Being apart can give you more things to talk about, and if he uses his alone time for exercise or meditation, he’ll likely be happier and healthier as a result.

It’s simple: smile when he says he’s out to do activities on his own that make him happy. Kiss him on the cheek. He’ll have a sense of being seen, heard, and supported.

Put down your phone.

On this, I’m just as culpable as everyone else. There’s always that one more email, that one more text from a pal, that one more work emergency. However, you must put your phone down and look at the individual in front of you.

When I find myself engaged in this cycle, I try to take a big breath and imagine the worst-case scenario of ignoring whatever is buzzing at me. He understands if it’s a serious emergency, but most things can wait.

When I put down my phone, I frequently notice him and take a good look at his face. I see the man I adore, the man I met so long ago, and I say to myself, “How ridiculous is it that I’m not engaging with him?”

Make a pact with your partner: if you need to use the phone for something essential, tell the other in a few words what it is. “The server is down,” or “The sitter is calling,” are both valid reasons to take a break, but inform him of your plans and when you’ll be back.

It’s simple: be present while you’re with the person you care about. Try not to lose track of time while staring at a computer screen.

When you get something for yourself, get something for him, too.

I’ll admit that I stole this idea from James Sama, but it’s sound advice that’s also simple to implement!

Getting a cup of coffee? Take one for him! Do you want to make a cup of tea? Make one for him as well.


Use these easy techniques to “lock-in” a man’s commitment to you, and to make him love you FOREVER!

I learned a long time ago that whenever I ever go to a surf shop, I always bring Ivan a present. I’m generally there for the kids, but I always grab a tee shirt or a cap for my husband, or even just a fresh lip balm or tube of sunscreen.

It isn’t about the amount of money spent; it is about the fact that I am telling him, “I know you like surf stores, so when I was there, I thought of you.”

It’s simple: saying, “It only takes a second,” is all it takes “Is it possible for me to get you one?” The effect continues indefinitely.

Look him in the eyes.

You don’t have to look longingly at each other as you used to at the roller rink with your 9th grade lover. Just take a moment to gaze each other in the eyes and share a look.

You wouldn’t think a soul-gazing connection would be on a guy’s list of wonderful things if you went by stereotypes, but I defy you to try it. With a smile or a fun expression, look him in the eyes and hold his gaze for three seconds. It’s a flirting tactic that works well for singles since it makes the other person feel as if they’re the only one in the room. He may now be your boyfriend or husband, but he deserves to be treated with respect.

Giving your partner a million wonderful little moments with you is one essential to a long-lasting relationship, and he should do the same in return. After all, research suggest that how much compassion exists between the couples appears to be a key factor in a happy marriage.

Even though I attempted to make it sound easy, some of these tasks are not always simple. They sometimes force us to be vulnerable in ways we aren’t accustomed to. I understand; I’ve been there, and occasionally I still am. But I believe it is worthwhile to give it a try.

Also, inquire about his list of small pleasures – I’m sure you’re already doing many of them.

How do you tell a sick person to get better?

You don’t have to write much to make a major difference in your recipient’s life. It’s quite acceptable to keep your personal message brief, pleasant, and uplifting, especially when the card itself says a lot.

Writing tip: For a student, coworker, or neighbor who is confined to a hospital or home due to an injury or illness, a quick “miss you” message can be quite helpful. It’s a wonderful little reminder of how important they are to you.

How do you make someone feel better when they’re sick?

When a loved one is suffering from a serious disease, friends and family members are often at a loss for what to do. They may withdraw because they are unsure of what to do or say.

It’s critical to show individuals who are sick that you care. Patients were asked to give their ideas on acts of compassion and support that they would find meaningful by our palliative care professionals. Try a couple of their simple tips to brighten the day of a friend or loved one.

  • When you have time, give us a call and then come over for 20 minutes. While illness may necessitate relaxation, it should not come at the expense of communication.
  • Prepare a meal for my family. Call beforehand and provide options. Food should be brought in disposable containers. I don’t have to wash or return anything.
  • Bake some cookies or brownies and freeze them so I can enjoy them when my hunger returns. I can make things available to visitors, making me feel like a good host or hostess.
  • Offer assistance on a specified date and time. I won’t ask if you just say, “Call me whenever you need me.” I won’t know when you’re available or what you want to do if you just say, “Call me whenever you need me.”
  • Bring your favorite non-alcoholic and caffeine-free beverages and healthy snacks.
  • Assist with birthdays and holidays. Offer to go shopping for me and bring me wonderful gifts or cards. Decorate my surrounds to make the holidays more merry.
  • Inquire as to who I might wish to see and arrange for a visit. When it appears that my entire existence revolves around requesting favors, I may be hesitant to approach a friend on my own.
  • Photograph or film my family at sporting or social events that I am unable to attend. This allows me to enjoy events that I would otherwise be compelled to miss.
  • Tell me a little about yourself and your background. It allows me to maintain contact with the outside world. It also provides me with something to talk about with my friends and family.
  • Please compliment me on how good I look in light of what I’m going through. I know I look sick, but I still want to look good.
