In brief: Why?

There are many reasons for cold feet.
Some people have a tendency to get cold feet when a relationship reaches a certain point (anxiety about being "trapped"...Or realizing that the other person isn't perfect ), in which case you should try to understand that and not assume she is the cause. Or there may be some specific cause (she is too quiet, or too loud, or?). Talk to her.

In brief: Honesty for the Win!

Hi there, i am not trying to quote the bible here, but it's always a good idea to treat people like you'd like to be treated.
If you know you don't see a future with her it's best to make it clear to her ( with as much as tact as you can muster ) rather than let expectations rise....
