Sounds like rejection -- big time.

But what do I know?

If something like that happens, it definitely means that communication -- the essential for any romantic relationship -- probably was never really there.

Also, like all questions of the form "Why did Person X do Y?" the only person who can answer that is Person X. You might ask mutual friends to whom Person X is talking.

If there aren't any mutual friends, what's the best course of action?

The best option is always asking Person X. A short message to her like, "What happened between us?" might be in order and, if she doesn't reply, drop it. There's not much else you can do.
