Unable to connect with anyone

I have a problem that has been stuck with me for as long as I can remember. I can't connect personally with anyone I meet at all -- I don't think it's a matter of bad social skills, but more of a matter of not really having any common interests...but I'm not sure about that either, which is why I'm here.

Best practices for seducing someone after having the "just friends" talk

I met this girl, and we were sorta-dating for a couple of weeks, before eventually she decided she wasn't up for dating anyone at the moment and we had the "just friends" talk. I'm fine with that, but would like AMF's advice on best practices for making her have second thoughts. This is less of a bad idea than it might seem, I promise. [more inside]

Is everyone wierd or is it just me?

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?

What to to get for a depressed friend?

What to get for a depressed friend? One of my friends has had a very bad week. She found out she needs surgery and lost a ton of work because her flash drive was stolen. I want to get her a gift to show her everything will be alright and I am here for her. Some info, she is college age and very smart. She has a boyfriend though so nothing too romantic. Prefer something available locally due to time constraints, but I'm not against shopping online.
