Why are some men not very attentive or caring or sensitive when their women are hurt or sick?
Some men are not used to being the 'caregiver' in the
relationship. They don't get it that they need to step in and take
a little more responsibility. Women are the ones who take care of
everything (mostly because we want it done our way), and probably
even when we are sick or hurt, we still carry on our duties as if
we weren't sick at all and just bear it. When the men are sick
since they become nagging 2 year olds, they would understand,
appreciate and LEARN that you are able to take care of them and
STILL take care of the household. So you would think that when it
happens to you, they would step in and do a little more emotionally
and physically. NOT Try talking to your man, and communicate to him
that you need some help. Wether it's getting a cold rag for your
head, or doing the dishes. Most likely he will do what you ask and
learn for next time. He will come around.
It's called being men.
He cares more of himself than of you.
