Mensagem:  Flemming, I think you have a feel for this.  "She's been putting me off for weeks" is neutral.  Maybe she has just cause, maybe not.  "She's been jerking me around" implies bad intentions.  "She's been stringing me along" gives the same impression as "jerking me around".  She's giving hope, probably false hope.  I'd say that "waffling" is just hesitency, much like "putting me off".
