They might feel like they have built a good foundation with you - for example through spending quality time and having good times with you. They feel like they have nothing to worry about.

If you are single and ask about someone you are interested in, the Four of Wands can indicate that the person in question is interested in going out and meeting new people. They might not want to date only one person at the time.
