I dated a guy who would often tell me I was too pale, he didn't like my clothes, thought my artwork was lousy. We went to different colleges and he would visit and grill me on who I was dating and so on.
It struck me if he was so dissatisfied with me as a girlfriend, why was he dating me? Most likely, to have some kind of control on me.
