>Perhaps your friends have got better things to do.
In my experience that's about it.
I've had a similar experience and now decided that I should stop making the effort, since then things have really died down. Turns out I just thought that my friendships were closer than they are. I'm a sociable and friendly guy anyway, so I think most people just assume they don't need to reciprocate.
I'm, rather weirdly, on the look out for people to hang around with (see: an actual social life) at the ripe age of 30. Importantly, I need to ensure I don't set a precedent for this to happen again— that's done by me being less laidback and not keeping one-sided friendships going, as I have before.
