Don't take this the wrong way, but maybe your friends feel you have nothing to offer the craft.
They are seeking members that are wealthy, or have power and influence over others, have business contacts, or have access to very useful information,
or are able to "fix" things.
They are not interested in taking on members that just wish to free load, and avail themselves of all the masonic privileges that the extensive web of
masonic corruption offers.
Masons desire to infiltrate, corrupt and control everything. And they do that by recruiting only potentially useful people.
Best to keep out of it totally, and do your research as a Cowan from outside.
As a member you will be reminded of your obligations.
If you wish to leave masonry, you will quickly discover that vindictive former brothers within the craft can make life very difficult for you once
they recognize you as an enemy of the craft.
Another thing to think about. The oaths you take ARE BINDING and mean certain spiritual death.
Once you spit in the face of God, there is no going back.
When you were baptized as a Christian child, your soul was dedicated to God.
The blood thirsty masonic oaths undo all of that.
This is not something to take lightly, or mess about with.
