I'm thinking he mentioned his mother because the girlfriend does things that remind him of his mother, including yelling and calling him names and such. And a lot of times, we misplace our love on others from someone we didn't get it from, so he's wanting it even more from her because he's not getting the satisfaction out of it because he didn't with his mother either. He's not getting what he wants. I do this too. I'm never satisfied. My mother stopped talking to me over a decade ago, and my girlfriend gets angry with me when I'm not a certain way, and I get angry at her. It hurts when she doesn't seem to really be there with me, but I have to understand she's her own person and I'm not allowed to consume all of her time, just like this guy wants to do with his girlfriend. It's separation anxiety, it's self loathing and yet self centered all at once; passive aggressive behavior that hurts him in the long run.View Thread
