Date, but no kiss!

I've been out of the dating pool for a long time, having been in a LTR for 10 years. So I'm a bit confused about what is normal now.

Anyway I met a lovely woman for a coffee from OLD the other week, and I kissed her on the cheek at the end. We subsequently went out to dinner, but when I tried to kiss her at the end she dodged it and gave me a hug!

What I am confused about is she told me she had a nice evening and wants to see me again. Does she think we are just friends? I would have thought a quick kiss on the second date was normal? Or is this some tactic to play hard to get?

I don't think women play hard to get any more do they?

The only time I've ever dodged a kiss from someone was when I didn't want to kiss them.

I'd accept her non verbal refusal and leave the ball in her court. It's no shame on you if she doesn't like you romantically.

Three possibilities:

She likes you but doesn't want to kiss yet, for whatever reason
She's seeing if you grow on her
She's looking for free food and wine.
