When someone says they're ready for another relationship, what does it mean? Does it mean you're ready to love again or does it mean you're ready to get hurt again?
Can I say I'm ready to be in a relationship but I'm not ready to be hurt again?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

I think saying "I'm not ready for a relationship" when said directly to someone is usually an excuse to not say what you are actually feeling. In other words, you don't want a relationship with that person...if the right person came along, I wouldn't be using that line...
Now to your questions. Does saying you want to be in another relationship mean you are ready to love again or be hurt again? That's a trick question, because it's both. Unless you live in a Disney move, there is no such thing as a totally always loving relationship. There are always ups and downs, it's a choice of whether you are willing to endure any bad times in a relationship in order to enjoy the good. And sometimes the good outweighs the bad, and the bad outweighs the good.
Basically, if you are ready for another relationship, you are ready to not be single. You have advantages and disadvantages in relationships, just like being single.
I for instance AM NOT ready for a relationship, because I like going home, and not having to answer to anyone except for my two awesome dogs. Oh, and I don't have to pay for dates right now. So I got that going for me, haha.1
