Find a Conversation

I have two issues that I want to work on that I was hoping I could get some input on. Basically, I am on the verge of becoming the woman I want to be (chessy, I know but...) and want to work hard at getting there.
So, first issue. Interpersonal skills. I am a fun person to be with, have opinions, am articulate and am a decent conversationalist. But I find myself struggling to make and maintain freindships. And when I do make friends I tend to be the one always doing the calling, planning, e-mailing, etc. I find it to be frustrating and would like some reciprocity. I would like to have others initiate first for a change - invite me to dinner, etc. I think that perhaps I make myself too available but if I don't I find I have no plans, no e-mails, no mail (or male. hee. hee.). How can I change this aspect of my life?
Second issue. I had a very good high school friend with whom I had a falling out. After time we got back in touch and seemed as if things were going well. We were taking it slow and we were killing each other with niceness but it seemed to be realigning itself and felt like we were friends again. Lately though she has dropped of the face of the earth and has not responded to my phone calls and e-mails. I am now scared that she is again mad at me. What to do? I thought about just asking her but I don't want to seem desparate but this hurts again.
thanks for your input.
