I am saying it can becoming annoying if you are looking after or hosting someone for a long time, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks :)

    Hello,

    To look after is at the same time more general and more personnal (I know there is an apparent contradiction) in my view. I mean:

    To host = to have someone at your place, as a guest - it does not necessarily mean you get involved.
    To look after = to take care, to be "protective" - even if the person is staying at your place.

    Cheers
