my son is obsessed with his girlfriend

I grew up with three sisters and we lived with our single mother. My heart goes out to your son.

He returned to her 4 times, while his mother screeched like a howler monkey. I know this because he called my daughter crying and told her he was doing the same things to his ex that he did to her and he was scared he was " f'd up". My issue is that I think my son is obsessed with her. He's already struggling with this narcissistic chick and now you want to suggest he somehow attracts "crazy" or helped create the situation? How do they distance themselves from these terrific young women who become (perhaps, temporarily) part of the family? (I was like “Um, no.”). Reason: My son thought, again, she was too controlling. My emotions are not like a light switch that I can easily flip on and off. The loving and family-oriented person was short-tempered, somewhat bitter, angry in tone, excessively cursing, and the list goes on. Fast forward again, at the end of summer break he ended it. People need to cut a little slack. So, she said what she needed and blocked every existence of him on social media. Does the young man want to please the clingy girlfriend or the demanding controlling mother? In fact, he has probably contemplated this subject more than his brothers, both of whom have stated that they plan on having children. I reach into my handbag to take out a small box, the transfer of which…, I knew this day was coming when you would walk through the door with HER; The girl you say is everything. The problem is that she is taking over every aspect of his life. I admit that I’m just not good at keeping people I like at arm’s length. She demanded all attention from everyone.

He is now 2.5 months back in college, second semester. He was new in college and had not yet had any time to himself to really experience college life independently. No matter what he did to show his affection is was met with a "thanks, but next time can you do this?" I had heard this advice from other people, as well.
