I am in the states. How can I make american female friends or any friends in general? I have few in my office but they are more like colleagues than friends. We never communicate other than office time. The main hurdle I see is lack of topics that can be discussed. How do you start the discussion? Where do they like to hangout in weekend time? What are their general like/dislike? What kind of cheesy thing do they for just time pass? Any input?

Seriously? You expect to be able to lump every woman in the U.S.A. into one simple, well defined category?
I honestly think that the answer to each of these questions is going to be "it is different for each and every woman on the planet".
My suggestion would be to not try. Don't TRY to meet them. Do things you like? Enjoy reading - join a book club. Like fishing? find a local pond or lake where you can go. Are you religious? Join a group at your place of worship.
There are hundreds of places you can volunteer - Habitat for Humannity, the Red Cross, etc.
Go to a park and ride a bike. Go to the mall and shop in stores you like. The harder you TRY to meet someone, the less likely you will.
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

In an office is a terrible place to make friends.
Join something that you want to do. Any hobby, model railroads, hacker spaces.
http://www.nycresistor.com/ in New York City, there are similar cooperative hacker spaces in nearly all large cities.
Horse riding, etc.
You are unlikely to make "friends" in a bar. You may get lucky, but that is another thread.

OK. I got the point here.
Still my question stands here. I am not american. So I think the way american boy/girl thinks/behaves differently about/to non american boy/girl. Like it is a kind of feeling I would be having back in my country if I see somebody other than native. How do I feel this gap? I have to get into their culture/way of thinking/like/dislike.
