    he recently got 2 girls didn't work out anything for what he wanted[br] [br]

    ... are you sure he is JUST depressed? How old is he? Is he the guy that's 10 years younger than you?[br] [br] Nah ... seriously though ... there is not much here to tell us what's wrong with him, or what is it about 。。。

    ...[br] [br] (continued) ... more questions ...[br] [br] (1) how long has he been like this? If it is less than a week, or even a fortnight, I would not worry too much about it .. [br] [br] (2) any idea what's the reason?[br] [br] (3) how long have you known him? what was he like before he became like this?[br] [br]

    ...[br] [br] (continued) ... ahhhh ... I hate to be one who tells you this ... but there is a good chance that he might be interested in you ... though, I cannot even imagine why ...

    but with some of my comfort words or something[br] [br]

    ... yes, definitely the "something" ...

    I also have a friend back home who suffers from a serious depresioon and he cannot recover since more than year even he took pills.

    If you want to help him you should first make sure if he really has got a depression or if he just feel not happy. Thats quite a different thing. The level of depression may be gratually of course, but with a serious depression people cannot do anything anymore. Its hard for them to go to work, to go out with friends and they feel maybe painful in their whole body. Sometimes its connected with sleeping problems. I assume your friend does not have this. If he has I would suggest him professional help (maybe outside of china as chinese psychologists still tend to treat things like internet addiction with electro shocks).

    However, if his situation is not that severe I suggest you to just be nice to him. Show him that you care and that he can trust you... Such things...

    If you were a real friend, you give him a blowjob.

    Just kidding. Seriously, have you considered buying him an 8-ball of cocaine, a bottle of whiskey and and/or a prostitiute? I can guarantee it will perk him up for a while at least

    drinking or pills won't work

    Where did you get your medical knowledge from? We are not talking about the funny little pills you get on weekend from your personal drug dealer (the black guy in Sanlitun who approaches you with "ey whatsupman") but from a real medication.

    Back to the facts: Pills definitely work and they will give a better mood in near 100 per cent. However as the medication is strong they tend to have serious side effects.

    To OP: I suggest you to read the wikipedia page about depression and try to get some real valuable information. The kids here seem to have most of their knowledge from TV-Series like Friends and Co.

    Pear Posting cats in the forum is becoming stale. I think you had gentle warnings about the amount of space these pics are using. I am surprised a mod has not deleted the last pic you posted in this thread!

    In the end the owners will ban pics in the forum and we will have Pear Blossom and her cats to thank. All I am saying to you to use some common sense, in particular on the size of your pics.

    Pear I made an observation about your pics. Marking your pics irrelevant I don't have this facility and even if I did I would not stoop so low as I think that is childish.

    @Killer

    I agree on this: The word depression is nowadays totally over used. So the first thing to do is to give a appropriate diagnosis before taking any medication. But I doubt that even in China you can get stong psychopharmaca easily without seeing a doctor. And even you should I guess that this person would be responible enought to not just take it.

    BTW. there are also some pills which are not so strong and seem to efficiently improve the mood. They are base on St. Johns Wood. Maybe you need to check online if you can find some futher informations about it where to buy it or not. Such pills are based on traditional knowledge on natural healing but profen to have an effect in clinical studies. Here two links:

    and in chinese:
