It always seems as if those people who are desperately looking for a relationship can never find a date, and those who are taking a break have an abundance of opportunities. They might be unwilling to take advantage of them, but some of them will occasionally accede to fate and go on an unexpected date. It might turn out badly, but it could also be the start of a relationship that will last well into the future.
People who are not interested in dating have often found their aloofness increases their chances of being asked out, but it does not necessarily mean they will say yes. Many of them know they eventually want to find a compatible person for a long term relationship, but they want to be on an even emotional keel before they take yet another chance on love. No matter what their eventual goal, their resistance to going out is an opportunity to make sure their next relationship will work for them and their partner.
