A player is determined as someone who likes to play the field. They're not interested in being in a relationship, because they don't see themselves being in a serious relationship.
They would just enjoy themselves with single people to see where it goes. It also would take a lot of determination not to care, because if they allowed themselves to it would change everything.
A fashion boutique called Pretty Fashions is owned by Theresa and Antonio Lopez-Fitzgerald.
Theresa has the job of designing and making the clothes. Antonio's job is being the manager of the store.
Right now the store is closed for lunch.
Theresa: So, I think we should go to New York for the weekend!
Antonio: I don't know!
Theresa: Antonio, what is going on with you? I thought you were okay with not being in a relationship.
Antonio: I was but sometimes I hate being alone.
Theresa: Antonio, are you ready to be in serious relationship with someone?
Antonio: I don't know!
Theresa: Then how about a new plan to go by!
Antonio: What do you mean?
Theresa: Well what if I get to pick a person for you to date and you pick the person for me to date.
Antonio: What's the catch?
Theresa: Well, to get the person to fall in love with each other.
Antonio: What happens after we get them to fall in love with us?
Theresa: We break their hearts!
Antonio: I don't think I can do that!
Theresa: Yes, you can!
Antonio: Theresa, this is a crazy idea.
Theresa: Yes, but you will go through with it.
Antonio: On one condition!
Theresa: What is it?
Antonio: If either of us really fall in love with the person we'll have to confess to the person that we were using them from the beginning.
Theresa: You got yourself a deal!
Theresa: So, tonight start deciding on who I should date and I'll do the same for you.
Antonio: How many choices do I have to come up with for you to date?
Theresa: Just two!
Antonio: I will give it a lot of thought before my final decision is made.
Theresa: I'm okay with that!
Meanwhile Kay is at the Book Café talking to Beth.
Beth: So, I have a idea that I want to run by you.
Kay: What it is?
Beth: We need to find someone for Antonio and Theresa.
Kay: I thought we agreed not to that!
Beth: Yes, but I don't like how they're using people for the fun of it.
Kay: I don't like it either but finding someone for Antonio and Theresa to date isn't going to be something easy to do.
Beth: Actually I know who would be perfect for them.
Kay: Well, tell me!
Beth: I was thinking Gwen Hotchkiss for Antonio and Fox Crane for Theresa.
Kay: That is impressive Beth.
Beth: Yes, but we have to let them know about Antonio and Theresa.
Kay: If we do that they might not agree to go out with them.
Beth: If not we'll just have to find people who will.
Kay: It's a great idea.
Beth: Good! Now, there is something I want you to do.
Kay: Which is?
Beth: You tell Theresa that Gwen Hotchkiss is coming back to Harmony, and that she's single.
Beth: I'll be the one to tell Antonio that Fox Crane is coming back to Harmony, and that he's single.
Kay: That is great.
Beth: They will thank us!
Kay: I hope so!
It is about 5 p.m.
Antonio and Theresa are back at their apartment.
Theresa: So, how about we get pizza tonight?
Antonio: That sounds great!
Seconds later the phone rings and Theresa goes to answer it, while Antonio heads to take a shower.
Kay: Hi Theresa!
Theresa: Hi Kay! What's up?
Kay: I found out from Beth that Gwen Hotchkiss is coming back to Harmony.
Theresa: I thought she was happy with Bryant Pierce in London.
Kay: She was!
Theresa: So, Gwen is coming back as a single woman?
Kay: Yes, she is.
Theresa: Thanks for letting me know.
Kay: You're welcome! Bye!
Seconds later Theresa ends the call and thinks to herself maybe I should tell Antonio I have picked the person that I think he should date.
Five minutes later
Antonio is on the phone with Beth.
Beth: I just found out that Fox Crane is coming back to Harmony.
Antonio: Why would he come back to Harmony? Isn't he happy with his girlfriend in Los Angeles?
Beth: They were but Fox will be coming back to Harmony as a single man.
Antonio: Thanks Beth for letting me know.
Beth: You're welcome! Bye!
Seconds later he ends the call and then he thinks to himself I think I should pick Fox Crane as the person to date for Theresa.
About 8 p.m.
Antonio: Theresa, I have decided on the person that you should date.
Theresa: I have decided that too!
Antonio: How would you feel about dating Fox Crane?
Theresa thought to herself I thought he was dating someone.
Antonio: He's coming back to Harmony as a single man.
Theresa: So, he has no idea that I use people for the fun of it?
Theresa: I agree!
Antonio: Good! Who did you pick for me to date?
Theresa: Gwen Hotchkiss!
Antonio: She's single?
Theresa: Yes! Would you be okay with dating her?
Antonio: I would be!
Theresa: Well, okay! So, the question is now when will they be back in Harmony?
