When do you initiate hanging out with a friend and when do you wait for them to initiate it? I have several friends here who I feel I pretty consistently invite to eat supper together or watch a movie. They always accept and seem to enjoy the time, but they never reciprocate. Is this like a dating relationship? Do I invite them so that they lose interest in hanging out with me? Do I need to wait for them to invite me to do something?
I feel like I understand most social situations, and I don't sense that I have any awkward social tendencies that would prevent others from inviting me to hang out, but I'm not sure why they haven't reciprocated the invite. What do you think?
