Aggression issues continuing

Hi everyone, I have previously posted about these issues with my lorikeet Margarita. A few months down the track and I have worked a few more things out.

So I have come to work out that (I think) he sees me as his mate. When strangers or my other birds come near me his eyes start to pin and he BITES ME.. hard. This is so unlike his usual self. A new thing that he has been doing is getting hold of whatever nearest body part of mine he is nearest to and will attemp to get on top and... in no polite terms.. hump me lol.

Does he see me as his mate? I have tried cutting back his daylight hours to reduce his hormones but it hasn't helped. Will he ever calm down? Getting him a mate is not an option due to noise issues.
