It seems that the reason ur depressed is because ur operating in the negative. By this I mean that you aren't investing in yourself ur putting all ur happiness in the hands of other people. At this age u should make some goals for yourself, short term @ first then switch to long term. Take time to appreciate the things in life that u have instead of focusing on what you don't. Good luck.

Passthrough agony aunt1. Finish high school. GED is worse.

2. Get a job.

3. It's likely illegal for anybody in your age group choice to date you, it's a form of child abuse.

4. Seek help for your depression.

luvy duvy agony auntOk...first things first! Go back to school and get away from your boyfriend. I don't want you to get so attached that you feel that you need him, and that you are nothing without him because that is where I think you are heading.

Once you have done those two didn't mention a job so I assume that you don't have one. Your next step is to get a job. Somewhere, where there a lot of people, a great place to meet people...OH YEAH! You should work at the mall. Working at the mall will give you both the chance to find friends, and a somebody. Look for someone close to your age(no more than three years older or a year or two younger)

I have to go, but I would love for you to send me some private messages!!
