The Six of Swords is the card of moving on, departure, leaving behind, and acceptance. This card shows a man rowing a woman and child on a boat to a new place.

If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Six of Swords reversed, that means this person sees you as someone they cannot move forward with. Unlike the upright Six of Swords, this person cannot accept the past. The wrongdoings linger in their thought process. They are pulled back when they think about strengthening a relationship with you, even though they have the love and passion necessary for a deep relationship.
The Six of Swords reversed means that they see you as a change in their life, but they are resistant to it. They do not want to change things in their life. They see you as a force that has come into their life and forced them to adopt a new relationship lifestyle. However, they are scared of this lifestyle and they are hesitant to do it. They need time to think about if this is what they want.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Six of Swords reversed is a sign that they see you as unable to move forward. You do great as friends, but they cannot muster up the courage to start a relationship. This makes it extremely painful for both parties because you both very well could want to be with each other romantically, but no one will ever make the first move. This transforms into an unbearable amount of regret later in life when you think back to them.
For existing relationships, the Six of Swords reversed means that they see you as comfortable. They do not want anything to change between you. This could be a positive, but also a negative depending on your goals. If you want a casual relationship that is nothing too serious, then this is a great sign. However, if you want a serious relationship with the potential for marriage and kids then this is a terrible sign. Have an honest conversation with your partner about what they truly want in life.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Six of Swords reversed shows that they see you as someone they cannot forget about. They have remained hung up on you since you broke up.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Six of Swords reversed means that they see you as a casual connection. Marriage is not on their mind. They do not want the relationship to advance or change. They are satisfied with how it is now. Marriage is a possibility in the future, but currently it is not.
