Why does my boyfriend intentionally irritate me?

Anonymous
He does it all the time. He finds out what annoys me, and keeps doing it untill I explode after tons of warnings. I sometimes feel the urge to hit him, but I remove myself from his space to cool down and he gets offended by that. Either he is poking my sister and I have to listen to her "stahp", or tickling me I don't like that (domestic abuse in my childhood reasons) and interrupting my speeches, tickling my nose and grabbing me so I can't move (again, childhood flashbacks) or annoying sounds. He says he loves seeing me get mad because I look adorable, but most of the time, it doesn't end well. How can I stop him? We love each other, but this seems to be a huge problem. Any advice?
