I'm interested in studying Psychology. But I've noticed changes in my friends attitudes towards me ever since I've told them I'm interested in the field. They seem more distant and secretive, as if I'm analyzing them all the time. Am I just paranoid?
Now I'm pondering if a life as a Psychologist would be fulfilling or even purposeful. What would a life as a Psyhologist be like?

Lately, the concept of "friends" seems to have become incredibly diluted by the casual use of the term by Facebook, MySpace et al. But in "the real world" what do you consider to be important when you are making and becoming friends? Is it how long you've known someone? How frequently you meet up? What you have in common? Something more intangible?
Also, I'd love recommendations of any books looking at the psychology of how people become friends.
