This situation is like many you have posted about. We don't have a window into your life. We don't know what people do or how people act towards you. We cannot see or hear any of these things, so we cannot make a judgement. We can't even guess. Yes, she may no flirting with you, or no, she may not be. We just don't know.

Please, if you have a question that does not ask us to base a personal opinion without facts or evidence, don't ask it here. You are more than welcome to ask questions, but ones like this are getting old.

In all likelyhood, she's just being friendly. In a friends-and-nothing-more type of way. But from the little information you've posted, there's no way to tell. I'd advise you just not to worry about it.

I'm just wondering... is there a reason you're choosing the word "dike" to describe your friend? Is it a word she uses to identify her sexuality, or did you choose it for some reason to describe her?

Usually, it's "dyke."

A "dike" is a geological rock formation. "Dyke" is how some women sexually identify, usually lesbian or bisexual women.

That may be part of why that question was asked.
