Hello, Guest,
yes, your example is OK. Giving false hopes is making someone believe the things s/he wishes will come true, but at the same time knowing you're lying, pretending.

Guest - what I see in this situation is that the girl does not want to be rude to the guy, but she does not want him to think, just because she is being polite, that she likes him in a romantic way, because she doesn't.
