The only time I had not been ready for a relationship was when I thought being in a relationship meant that I had to have a well paying career that could provide for a woman and family. Actually it's wasn't true and it was all in my head, but it was what I was taught in regards to being responsible as a man. I didn't come back, I had to transfer back home so we lost touch, but the woman that liked me, was hurt by it when I had saw her sister later, and I regretted not discussing it with her or giving her a heads up. Communication became very important for me after that.
The man that is just coming out of a relationship, may not emotionally be ready for a new relationship as he is still processing his divorce. I'd be supportive of him but not to the extent that he sees you only as a friend. Furthermore I think you should take it slow so you don't become a rebound or just something to fill the void.1

Never happened but I would not do that! I am not waiting around for anyone. Maybe if years passed and we happened to run into each other and there was still some spark I would give it another shot. I can say that all the guys that hurt me because they ended up not wanting anything serious have ALL tried coming back at some point but I am over them and never even wanted to go there again.1
