While your deck's 10 of Swords may appear less severe than others, it's a card that shouldn't be taken lightly in terms of emotions or any other aspect. I sense that "X" is feeling worn down by an ex who hasn't been fully overcome yet – reluctantly reentering the dating scene because it seems like the expected thing to do, without genuinely desiring or expecting to form a love connection. The 10 of Swords often conveys a profound sense of exhaustion and hopelessness; "X" may be emotionally numb at the moment, finding it challenging to feel much, if anything, for someone new.
If the other cards paint a positive picture, "X" might be open to casual interactions like friendship, dates, or perhaps something physical. However, "Y" should be cautious not to raise hopes too high for an emotional attachment or romantic feelings from this particular person. 🌟
