My boyfriend has had always had anger issues, but it seems the longer we're together the more out of control it gets. He'll flip out on me for the smallest things, or twist my words around to try and find something wrong with what I've said, and get angry about it. He yells at me and then will find something to say to get under my skin - something that could be totally unrelated to our argument - just to hurt my feelings.
I know his anger is an issue, but the way he is so easily set off worries me. Sometimes he'll call me and be in a great mood, chatting and making jokes, and other times when I talk to him he's quiet and withdrawn, says he doesn't feel like talking and gives me one-word answers, seemingly unprovoked. I wouldn't say he's overly depressed or what could be described as "manic," but he does get on these kicks where he makes all these plans for himself - but that's all they are, all plans and never any action.
It just seems strange to me that he has these extreme mood swings and anger issues, but I don't know if that's all they are or if he may have some bipolar tendencies?
