It sure seems like you are being strung along, but I would ask where she stands one more time in relation to you. Once you have the answer you can move on accordingly, but don't pester her anymore if she gives an answer that showcases indifference towards you.

from what you described she is not interested in you... I dont know if she is stringing you along or not.. you may be seeing what you want to see rather than her stringing you along.
Either way I would say friend zone her.

Carol Ann has it right.

To be "strung along," you have to have someone trying to lead you somewhere. You describe this woman as an aimless drunk who stumbles randomly through your life. You can't attribute intent to her, until you actually witness a sense of direction.

Walk away. Hell, run away. There is nothing here, it's not even a drama relationship, there's nothing there. She's totally not interested. I don't see what you are confused about, you aren't involved with her at all, she's done.

Your not being strung along...your taking every step willingly with your eyes wide open next to her.

If it were me, it might have lasted a day or two. After awhile, you can catch these in their earlier stages. I know it is hard when you want it to be more, but it is what it is. Delete her number, forget you know her, unfriend her on Facebook, do what you gotta do.

Sweetie I hate to sound harsh...but this girl is 'keeping you on the hook'
Meaning? She is probably very actively dating multiple other guys...but keeping you around for a plan B.

It sucks...it is unfair....but it looks like that is what is happening.

You need to ditch her and move on. She obviously has not made you or your feelings a priority.
