How To Make Your Boyfriend Feel Better When He’s Sick (Over Text) - 17 Genius Ways

Last updated on June 11, 2024 by Michelle Devani

Your boyfriend is sick and you can't be with him right now.

Or maybe it's your crush who is bed-ridden. 

Either way, this guide is packed with ideas for messages you can send to help cheer him up. 

These are the moments that can seperate you from those other women who are only there for the 'good times'. So, make sure to take note of these ideas and send them into this special guy's inbox as soon as possible. 

However, before we begin, I think you might appreciate hearing this quick personal story. 

Recently, I have been studying a little-known aspect of male psychology, most commonly referred to as 'The Hero's Instinct'.

This is a primal part of the male mindset, which plays a huge role in their attraction to women. 

When a woman knows how to trigger this part of a man's mind, he falls hard. Often, he'll be putty in her hands. 

I know because I tried it myself! Before learning how this psychological routine works, I was usually the woman that men wanted for a 'bit of fun'. Now they treat me more like an OBSESSION.

You can learn how everything turned around by reading this account of how I discovered the 'Hero's Instinct'.

These psychological concepts are far more powerful than a nice 'get well soon' text. 

Still, I have revealed the best texts to send to a man who's sick. Read on to discover them.

General Guidelines When Texting a Sick Boyfriend 

One thing you should do when taking care of a sick boyfriend via text is to be extremely sweet and sympathetic. You want to show him that you are a kind soul who will always take care of his needs, whatever they may be. You want to show your man your soft side. It’s actually times like this when guys are able to tell whether a girl is marriage material or not. 

This means you’ve got to control your temper; if you are fighting over something, it’s time to let it go. Now is not the time to nag or get upset if he doesn’t respond right away to your text messages. Remember that he is sick and may not be able to respond soon to texts. He may be sleeping or feel too weak to look at his phone right now. He’s not feeling well; be patient!

As you send him sweet text messages to make him feel better, make sure you are positive. He doesn’t want to hear about negative things like something sad that happened on the news. Instead, try to make him smile or laugh with the things you say. You want to try to lift his spirits while he is down. This may be the time to send him a hilarious YouTube video or meme.

What You Can Do To Make Your Boyfriend Feel Better

what you can do to make your boyfriend feel better

1. Purchase medicine for him

One of the sweetest things I ever did for a boyfriend was to drive two hours to his house after I got off work and take him a vaporizer with a bunch of cold medicine. He was shocked at my sweet actions. Make him a gift basket with medicine goodies (cough drops, cough syrup, honey, lemons, tea, and whatever else you can think of)!

2. Pamper him

Give him a massage or even a pedicure; yes, guys can get pedicures! He’ll enjoy the attention you are giving him and appreciate the efforts you are making to ensure that he’ll get better soon! You can easily win the heart of your man if you take good care of him!

3. Fix him his favorite food

Sometimes, you just need something delicious to get better soon. If he loves tamales and has a cold, make them extra spicy, and that will help clear his sinus problem! Be creative with what you make, and be sure to serve it on a fancy platter, so he can eat in bed. My personal favorite is old-fashioned chicken noodle soup! I think it’s a cure-all!

4. Make him a gift basket

There isn’t much better when you are sick than a care package of some kind. You know with a gift basket that your loved one really cares about your well-being. You might include some medicine, tea, a handheld game, a cozy blanket, and some delicious treats like candy or chocolate. He’ll love the thought you put into this act of kindness!

5. Listen to his complaints with care

listen to his complaints with care

If you’ve never been sick with what he has, it may be hard to empathize, but try your best. Try to be understanding and caring when he complains of his ailments. You may be able to research his symptoms online to find some great home remedies you can try. Be sure to listen intently when he talks about what’s going on, too. That’s important.

6. Have sex with him

Glamour recommends distracting your man with sex. Provided he isn’t too sick, sex is a great way to get his mind off what’s going on. He’ll easily forget all about the fact that he’s under the weather, and he’ll be happy for the nice distraction! If you think this might work, put on your sexy lingerie under your clothes and win his heart!
