Hi! My nine year old son likes having a buddy for playdates. His last close friend became very interested in girls, which changed the dynamic of their friendship. My son just wants a buddy with like interests -- soccer, books, outdoors, comics, video games, chess, crafts, animals.

sometimes we have the "only child blues" here too - but it's only temporary.  He'll find a new friend soon.

Have you gotten him involved in activities/clubs that revolve around some of those interests?

 I agree with Kris... Clubs/sports/activities are a great way to connect with someone.

Good Luck!

And Welcome!!
