What happened here?

My grandma (who I am very close to) recently went into a diabetic coma, had to have a leg amputated, and almost died. Obviously this has been a tough time for me.

Should I look her up and contact her after all this time?

I've been out of contact with a certain friend for about five years now. She'd been dealing with bipolar (and relationship) issues for a while before then, but I'd never witnessed any signs myself. On a lark I recently decided to see if she was in the customer database at work, and she was, but I didn't open the profile. I've worried about her from time to time, but while it's tempting, I don't feel like I should look up her contact info that way. Is there any circumstance under which I could or should? [more inside]

My friend follows a strict diet; me, not so much....

We have a dear friend who follows an unusually restrictive diet. So many socializing opportunities seem to revolve around eating, such as going to a restaurant or having a cookout, that it gets a little awkward because she can't get her special food. She seems determined to keep up this diet, so we need to find other ways to get together with the focus less on eating and more on... something else. Getting together to go to a movie worked well, since she just skipped the popcorn and had bottled water, but what else can we do as a group of 3 or 4 women that won't focus so much on food and eating?

How Do You Make Friends From Strangers?

You've moved to a town very remote from any of your established social circles: you have no best nor casual friends nor any romantic relationships. You go into one or more meetings of utter strangers with whom you know you share some common interest (OneBrick, a Mefi meetup, a Meetup.Com thing, or something else entirely). What do you do — specifically, pretend I've got Asperger's here (no offense to those who do) — to take things from the level of "just an amiable conversation" to an actual friendship? [more inside]
