My son has been depressed for almost a year now because he wants to have a girlfriend. I've tried telling him that he has to wait and be patient, but he just shouts over me and tells me that he's sick of this crap and that he just wants to be in a relationship. I've suggested that he date certain girls at his school. He says he's gotten to know most of them, but does not like any of them (his school is pretty small). I've taken him to the mall and to street festivals and outdoor concerts, but he didn't want to talk to any of the girls there. We live in a fairly small town and there are no clubs for him to join. He likes books, so he's tried sitting in the bookstore and looking for girls but he has had no luck. Lately he's been so down that he's stopped talking. He almost never leaves his room and he cries all the time. I'm not sure what to do. I know of no other places where he can meet girls. He's so upset and angry and I want to help, but I just can't think of anything else.
