I’ve spent most of my dating life learning that “keenness isn’t cool.”
DON’T BE KEEN!!
they told me.
Play it cool.
I was told.
So how is it that a friend is now dating a girl he once thought was overly keen? She is older than my friend, she has baggage, she replies at 4am when she wakes up in the middle of the night, she replies straight away. “I’m worried she’s a bit keen”, he said a few weeks ago. But now they see each other all the time. I’m glad things are working out, but it doesn’t make sense. He said he wanted to be single and play the field a bit, and he was concerned she was too keen. But look where we are now.
- He has a girlfriend and
- I’m still single, despite waiting for various guys to initiate a date.
I just don’t get it.
