Why did the man used to say compliments, and then began to pick on the little things, even in clothing? It's possible that he no longer has feelings for the girl?
Answer from: Dmitry Ivanov:
I love people. Especially blue-eyed blondes....
They probably weren't. Or rather, there were, but they were superficial and focused more on the desire to possess than to be a partner in terms of mutual support, cooperation, etc.п. So this reaction at this point in time is centered on abusiveness - repression.
In my opinion - this is the kind of character you should run away from.
