My son returned from UCLA like he’s someone else

My son returned from UCLA like he’s someone else. I don’t recognize who he is anymore. First it was his looks, so I shrugged it off. My wife and I said maybe he’s just trying to fit in. Then more changes occured like him demanding gluten free kale salad for dinner or something equivalent to that. I can barely keep up. I oversaw his screen the other day and saw that he’s looking at internet brides??? What has he become now? I want to confront him about this observation. I don’t know how though. Please help

    Going gluten free was one of the most healthiest things I did at university. The Internet brides thing does concern me though. Have you asked if he's lonely? Is he easily taken advantage of and or scammed as Internet brides can be scam sites.

    I have asked him. I even reassured him that I'll support him with whatever he's going through but he says nothing's wrong. I'll wait out until he approaches and opens up to me first. I'm just glad he doesn't have a credit card or something to avoid any kind of scam.

    Would it not be extraordinary and disappointing if your son had returned the same person? Why the rush to judge and assume something is wrong?
