Macaws do not become sexually mature until around 6-7 years old, so if your bird is young, the behavior is playing.

As for liking or not liking boyfriend, birds take a long time to get to know and trust humans, so if this person is not there all the time and interacting with bird, then it may take forever for bird to trust him. Also birds choose favorite humans, and trust is earned not freely given by any parrots.

They are also very good judges of character kind of like dogs are only more so. Birds have roughly the emotional/mental development of a 4-5 year old human child and are aware of whether people like them or not or if they are hiding who they really are. Birds see all and react accordingly. Maybe boyfriend does not like bird and bird knows this and is afraid of him. Birds always remain little children in their minds and can become afraid of people who either don't like them or wish them harm. Who knows, maybe your bird is trying to tell you something, so listen and watch how this goes.
