American Etiquette? A friend has invited people several times out to lunch and over to his house for dinner and even though they have always?

accepted his invitations, they have never once invited him out for lunch or dinner. I am American and to me I thought that it would be common courtesy for them to return the food favor in some way. Even though I am American, am I wrong about this aspect of American culture. I want him to realize that Americans... show more accepted his invitations, they have never once invited him out for lunch or dinner.

I want him to realize that Americans are better than this, at least I hope so.

So is it common courtesy for Americans to reciprocate in this way, or Not?
