So I am not so sure that she was looking for love though she did have some pretty horrific "dating" stories.Of course, the fault was never hers and the guys were always the one to do wrong.

Allow your relationship to progress at its own pace. Men think about how they feel when they are around you and miss you when you're apart. If he's texting you sporadically, but not putting a date on the calendar or changing plans last minute, he just might be setting you up as a back-up girl or might have had a bump on the road with his steady sweetie. Let him know you'd like to be friends, but don't allow yourself to get invested in a relationship where you're just the backup girl. If he still doesn't up the ante, find someone else who can't wait to see your text or emoticon on his phone.
When he realizes you're a catch and doesn't want anyone stealing his girl, he'll amp it up. Read: I Saw His Text Messages: Is He Cheating or Is It Over?
Texting can be addicting, but is a great form of digital foreplay. Men are typically goal-oriented and work and projects are at the top of their list. If you started out as friends and moved into casual dating, he might not be sure if it's time to get serious or not. It means they typically won't be keeping their options open anymore.
