Girls, why would she go out of her way to not sit next to me if she likes me?

I already asked this question, anonymously, a couple of days ago, but I only got two responses, neither of which were from females, so I'm going to ask this again. Sorry, if I'm not supposed to do that.

Okay, so, there's this girl that I'm fairly sure likes me, but only because other people seem fairly convinced that she does. I'm still not entirely convinced. She does lots of the things girls supposedly do when they like a guy, particularly initiate conversations with me often, but it feels like she often goes out of her way to avoid sitting next to me.

Like, if she enters a room, and the only available seats are mine, and one kind of far away next to someone she isn't as good as friends with as me, she chooses to not sit next to me. This is only a recent development, too, because she sat next to me multiple times earlier in the year. It's not even just that she does that, though, but she avoids, like, partnering up with me, if she has the option to do that, as well, choosing to sit next to someone a couple of seats away from me, so that she can still initiate conversation with me, but not sit next to me, for whatever reason.

Can anyone think of a reason why she might be doing this? Is it possible that she has stopped liking me? Or do you think someone just gave her some bad advice, telling her to play hard to get, or something stupid like that?
