O. k. so my boyfriend lives an hour and a half away, we've only been seeing each other a month and while he was spending the night the weekend before last he blurted out the statement " If you didn't live in the one town I hate " There was no conversation going on prior, we were just laying there holding each other quietly. I didn't ask him at the time because it was a little awkward and I didn't want to put him on the spot , but I asked him tonight and his response was " Just that I never liked living there as a kid and wouldn't be particularly keen on living there again " and when I asked what brought that to mind at that moment , he kind of got defensive and shut me down with " your putting too much thought into a throw away comment " Can any of you men translate this because I am confused...

It sounds like he was bothered by something he remembered about his past in the town, and that comment was his way of bringing up a discussion about it. I think it has little or nothing to do with you.
I doubt it was a throwaway comment, though. He probably wanted to talk about something (like bad memories of the town) and that was his way of transitioning into that topic. Maybe he backed out, and is trying to play it off as an off-hand remark, but he didn't say it for no reason.
Has he ever talked about that town before?1
