“Ryan’s a very sweet guy and he cares a lot for Audrina, but he’s not ready for a serious relationship or to settle down,” the source tells PEOPLE. “He’s a playboy.”
“They didn’t see a long-term future for now,” continues the source, adding: “They’re still friendly, though.”
In June, Patridge told PEOPLE she was “the happiest I’ve ever been” after getting back together with Cabrera.
“We’re just having fun. Nothing is forced,” she said. “You know, great things happen when it’s not forced, and things are naturally just happening. And that’s what it is. We just have the best time together.”
Her divorce from Bohan remains contentious. The reality star requested a temporary restraining and child abduction prevention orders against the professional BMX biker last year; she filed for divorce two days later.

A judge later granted Patridge full custody of Kirra. Bohan was given visitation rights, with drop-offs to occur at a police station and conversations between the parents to be held through the communication service Talking Parents.
“He won’t sign them,” Patridge previously told PEOPLE of the divorce papers. “I don’t know. We’ll see what happens. It is what it is. The best thing that came from that was Kirra, and I’m so thankful for that.”
Patridge is currently working on The Hills reboot, which was announced by MTV in late August.
