I don't know if it is just me but ever felt like you have invested efforts and time with friends by usually being the one initiating outings or lunch/dinner dates.

But when you don't call them, they don't call you either.

I'm not saying that I expect something in return but its just a feeling i get from them that they don't really acknowledge my efforts enough and didn't really initiate back efforts.

Is anyone caught in this situation too especially with friends?

Yep, my former friend of over 20 years since first grade was doing this to me, despite my best efforts and literally chasing afte him for response, I finally realized the painful truth and pointless pursuit of a friendship gone into a one way streak. I cut communication with him completely and moved on with my life. Was real hard for months, but I'm mostly over it now.

Well, some of them did ask me out but it was usually me most of the time.

And actually they themselves are already their own clique; I just happen to be the additional member.
