I see you've been around for a while but I didn't read any of your other posts, I'm just commenting on this one.
If your son is struggling socially and emotionally I can't say what the best way to help him is, but I do know that the WORST idea is to date someone so he has a "buddy - step brother".
1. Talk to your son and see if you can get him to let you in and share what's going on. Share with him that you also have troubles and tough times, but those times pass and there's always a solution.
2. Get him involved in some activities like sports, music, theater, debate, or whatever. Maybe you could participate from a distance if that'd help (coaching, driving, support, etc).
3. Get your divorce over and done with, stabilize your life, make sure your relationship with your kid is solid, and only then should you consider dating.
Your heart is in a good place but your emotions are clouding your judgement. Don't worry - we've all been there.
