That is no longer true.

Condoms are a must, but IMO other, more reliable, contraception should be used as well.

Besides the questionable ethics of lying to gain access to an adult website, any relationship that starts out based on a lie is not likely to be a good thing.

He lost to a bigger and better athlete. There is no shame in that.

Losing is part of playing competitive sports. At 16, your son is old enough to understand that.

I think many teens are naturally a bit narcissistic, like toddlers. I don't think it's a good thing, but I don't think it's a harbinger of doom.

I do think that it is a very bad thing that the...

I agree that encouraging an unstable teen to lie in order to access an adult dating site is a really bad idea. There is nothing about it that is safe and honest.

Social media is full of ways for...

Maybe make a deal, the three of you, that he can sleep in your room for two weeks?

There is no shame in losing to a larger and better trained opponent. He should be ashamed of worrying about "losing to a girl".

How are we supposed to know what the social scene is like where you live? If he's so smart and popular, he should be able to find some activities, since apparently budget and transportation are not...

It "didn't work" because meeting people is not like solving a calculus problem. It takes time, and effort, and is often one step forward and two steps back. If he wants to meet girls, he needs to get...

Getting enough sleep may affect his energy levels and his posture. Maybe don't let him stay up until 2am on school nights.

I can believe it. Real 17yo girls are flawed and can be awkward. If this young man believes he "deserves" a Nobel Prize winnning supermodel, he may truly not be interested in real girls. Of...

Thinking of girls as something to "get" is pretty creepy. Besides, how does he know he likes the personalities of the girls at the mall? How can he tell that they are novel writers or readers?

You can teach him that girls are people, and girlfriends are people. He can't just go to the mall and"get" a girlfriend. He has to like people and be likeable himself.

He has decided he doesn't...

GIRLS ARE PEOPLE.

He can't "have a girl" or "find a girl" like he can find a cool new hoodie.
