    Hey guys, need to ask a qeustion. And yuor advise will really be apreciated.

    Anyway, i woke up with an awfull flew this morning, and the timing couldn't be any worse, it being valentines day and stuff. So me and my bf have plans this evening, going to go see a movie and stuff and ussaully afterwords i sleep over at his place. And here is where the problem comes in, i dont want to make him sick sleeping in the same bed.

    So my question is to all the couples out there, when you get sick and are living together or sleep over, do you sleep the night in another room or just hope for the best and sleep together any way even if you are sick?

    Thanks guys for your time...icon_biggrin.gif snif snif

    My ex detested sick people and would have nothing to do with me if I was ill.

    I think this is a chance for your bf to score some huge bonus points by making this a truly romantic valentine weekend by taking care of you and sleeping in the same bed with you as well.

    One of the few times in a relationship that it can be all about one person and not both, is when one is sick. Hopefully he steps up to the challenge and you can milk it for all it's worth. icon_wink.gif

    When I was with my ex, when i would get sick usually we would sleep in the same bed. There were times if I was extremely ill I wouldnt let him so he did not get sick though.

    So you have the flu - big deal! If your bf doesn't catch it from you he probably will from the next person sneezing at him. Of course it is not nice when looking forward to spending a romantic w/e with each other but taking care of one another is also quite romantic, no?

    If I threw my hubby out of the bedroom everytime he sneezes or the other way around.. I'd find that a bit strange.

    my bf and i live together and, generally speaking, when one of us gets sick, the other one happily takes care of the sickie, but we sleep in separate beds. sometimes we both end up getting sick anyway, but there are certainly times when it's no doubt helped one of us avoid it. it's also a matter of not wanting to ruin the other's night sleep with coughing or sneezing or trips to the bathroom. then again, special occasions sometimes trump those health-driven intentions. he recently got back with a nasty head cold after a week away. did that keep us from having hot make-out heavy reunion sex? hell no. did i end up coming down with an even nastier version of his head cold. yes sir. would i have done the same thing again if given the choice? yup!

    I rarely get sick and it's usually from my co-workers/circulating air, when I do. I like to think I have an awesome immune system and buff white blood cells HA.

    I don't recall ever getting sick from sleeping next to a sick bf. Generally it isn't a huge turn off unless it's some crazy flu with nose goo all over the place.

    Personally, if me or the BF have a cold or flu bug.... the healthy one does the "pamper and fuss" to take care of the sick one.....and uses lots of Lysol, sanitizing wipes and antibacterial/anti-viral hand gels, and tissues to the trash immediately...etc and lots of chicken noodle soup or tomato soup, toast, hot tea and TLC!.... and still sleep together if it is a minor cold, but not the flu.....For a cold...not a big deal, for the flu it is different and we both use more care and minimize direct contact.... but we both get flu shots too so that helps....both of us increase our Vitamin C intake...life happens and I don't live in a bubble, so reasonable and prudent caution is used as appropriate when some one is ill......icon_cool.gif

    If it's literally the flu that can be nasty and last for a week or more, disrupting work or school, or whatever he does if he catches it, too. I wouldn't be concerned about a simple head cold as much, but flu might be worth considering staying apart.

    My partner & I live together, and made contingency plans during the height of the flu here in the US, right after he came home from the hospital, which of course was a special situation for him. We both had flu shots, but just in case I came down with it, he would have moved in with his sister for the time I was sick, since he was still mostly confined to bed and couldn't take care of himself yet.

    He was still weak from his hospital ordeal, so flu was the last thing he needed. If he came down with it before me then I would have stayed with him, and I could take care of myself if I was the one who got sick while he stayed with his sister. A special case with us, as I said, but these are things you consider that can change how you approach such a possibility.

    When one of us is sick the first consideration is for the healthy one, who now has to run the show, so to speak, everything from grocery shopping to cleaning the entire house. It's a big list. The sick one is well looked after and every creature comfort met. Sleep together when sick? Nope.

    We usually cuddle for a while, but if I'm coughing or restless, I get up and move to the sofa later. I don't want to keep him from getting a good night's sleep.
