    Nose running, coughing, sneezing and needs cuddling. Do you oblige?! Or does your germaphobia trump your boy?

    oh hell nah....

    total germ-a-phobe here. I would slide trays of food into his room if i could. Wouldn't get in a sick bed, covered in germ spores and grossness

    I'm not a germaphobe and never get sick. So I'd be ok with being around him and snuggling.

    The boy is an adult and not a 4 year old child. He needs to get over it.

    I would be right by my guys side cuddling next to him, giving him tissues and making him chicken noodle soup. I was sick for the second two dates with my bf and he kept me comfortable.

    Cuddle up with him on the sofa and watch a movie together + some nice soup....

    Mind you, I suppose it does depend on the infection he has, if my guy was vomitting everywhere, there would be no cuddling - but the soup would still be available of course!

    Sure thing, if you are living together, sleeping in the same bed even breathing the same air you have probably already been exposed, a hug is not going to push you over the edge. Draw the line at kissing if you like, but if a hug is going to help him then do it.
    Personally I want to be completely alone when I am sick but i would like to think that if i needed a hug my boyfriend would be there no matter what the reason.

    The nursing is OK, but cuddling is not really necessary if you give him enough bourbon.

    The caregiver needs to stay healthy enough to do his job.

    Trollileo saidThis is why I hate the English language having so many names for significant others. I have no idea if you're talking about children or your boyfriend.


    Maybe he means his horse...

    Just put your boy out of his misery. Shoot him in the head and get a new one.

    If I'm sick, I refuse to let anyone get close to me. Even when I'm feverish and all I want to do is cuddle. Risking the health of a loved one is selfish.

    I would cuddle. Unless he's feverish. Then it just gets sweaty.

    I don't necessarily have an aversion to germs, but to projectile body fluids..sick ones, that is...

    I'm the best boyfriend ever because I work in the ER, so not only do I have the hookup for meds to make him better, I can give him VIP treatment if he needs to go to the ER icon_razz.gif

    AMoonHawk saidCuddlingis ok ... just wear a face mask if it is contagious and be sure to wash your hands thoroughly and try not to touch your face ... 2 sick people can't take care of each other.


    yeah, wearing a face-mask like he has bird-flu wouldn't be awkward at all...

    I once had the worst cold and went out with this guy I'd had a few dates with before. I felt horrible on our date, and at the end we're making out heavy and I'm like uh are you sure you want to do this I have like a really bad cold and you shoving your tongue down my throat may not be the best idea, he was all I don't give a fuck. Major points, and he didn't even get sick! Which I thought was pretty miraculous.

    I would make him soup and cuddle- Usually a cold or flu incubates for awhile so by the time symptoms manifest... hes already been contagious... Youre either going to get sick or not. Just comfort him. I have spoken.

    Guys can we stop being so sassy about the word ''boy''?

    You all know, if ya think about it, that I'm not talking about a child, a horse or anything but your significant other whether you're married or not. Left it to interpretation!

    I'm confused by this. Your "boy" is your BF or partner?

    When my late HIV+ partner had a major seizure & attack, chocking on his own blood, I cleared his airway with my fingers, as I was Army-trained. And I gave him a bloody mouth-to-mouth until the EMT arrived, saving his life.

    You think I cared a fuck about myself? My risk factor was mega-high. This was was partner, my husband, dying right in front of me, and my duty to him was paramount.

    I knew this possibility might happen before we "married", when we had made ourselves partners for life. It's what I signed on for, and if I didn't want it, then I shouldn't have chosen him.

    There is such a thing as duty, and obligation. If you don't want to handle it, then don't take it on. Once you've made that pledge, you accept whatever happens, no matter what.

    And so are we talking about your BF getting a head cold? REALLY?

    get in bed and cuddle with him and make him feel better. it's just a few germs which pills can kill or a few days in bed sick can solve. then the tables will be turned ;)

    Meh. I'd make him feel good :-)
    Not everyone likes to be around others when they are sick so it all depends on him. Either way I'd be fine with showing him affection or giving him space.

    I'll let him lay on the couch with his head on my lap. That's my compromise.

    We haven't been sick very much, but when we are - we just spoon and hold each other and go to sleep. He made me hot soup and tea - plus we get meds and make drugstore runs for each other.
