Now him. Tyler is full of useful

Now that Tyler and the narrator are living under the same roof, the narrator starts to know more about him. Tyler is full of useful information and what the narrator learned about Tyler is that he follows his father as his goal. In the parking lot, the narrator and Tyler fought and the point is made clear in Fight Club that you fight as a form of catharsis, just fight, nothing personal. Tyler has been thinking about his dad while fighting him. “Lying on our backs in the parking lot, staring up at the one star that came through the streetlights, I asked Tyler what he’d been fighting. Tyler said, his father.” This reflects on both Tyler and the narrator to how they felt a sense of abandonment after their father left them.         This shows how father and sons often times fight one another; the son wants a sense of independence to become someone better, however, the father wants the son to become someone who the father wants the son to be, thus causing a fight. This also applies to mother and daughter as the former wants the latter to become herself, but fights when the daughter wants free will. Because parents often time restrain their kids from danger and risks, this doesn’t develop children or restrain them from freedom. Thus resulting in a heated exchange that often times end up one-sided which give them a more tense relationship between them. This in a long-term would end up with being given less love and opportunities, or mental abusement in some cases.         Tyler and the narrator met on a nude beach and ended up as best friends. They created fight club a club where two people fight with several rules. It actually started when Tyler invited the narrator to punch him, thus escalating as a (friendly) brawl. This was their form of rolling off steam from their dull life. The fight club then grew with people joining the fight club such as businessmen, friends, managers, co-workers, etc. It’s their form of therapy and their brotherhood. Since the narrator was living under the same roof, they also share the same telephone, and this is how the narrator meets Marla. Tyler visits Marla when she wanted to kill herself, so Tyler invited Marla to his house (which he and the narrator is currently living in) to escape the ambulance and cops. Because Marla doesn’t want to sleep since she fears that she wouldn’t wake, Tyler and Marla thus have sex with no strings attached, showing how they just do it for the sex not intimacy. The narrator on the other hand shows jealousy towards Marla because she stole her support groups and now she is stealing her best friend. Tyler tells the narrator to not tell Marla about anything regarding Tyler himself or else their relationship ends. The narrator acts cold and dismissing towards Marla while Marla talks about love, abuse, and abandonment several times before leaving, this leaves the narrator confused after Marla kisses him and tells him to call her.
