Last month I went to a psychologist and talked about this exact problem- the need for assurance that you're liked, and anger that the effort I put into building friendship seemed unreciprocated.
She said to judge people by their actions- if they routinely accept your invitations, they probably like you. Normal people are adept at avoiding people - they won't say yes if they don't want to.
She also said that people are stuck in their ways- they can get in the habit of relying on you to organize things, or they're just won't think to call you first, if they've never done it before. I agree with Geezie- it's hard, but sometimes you have to be the one to extend invitations. Good luck.
