For Frances, it was a point of pride at one point that she was undateable. This feeling that she didn’t fit into hetero-normative structures, that she wasn’t able to settle down, and no man would be able to handle her. She thought that she and her friend were like that and that they would grow old together and be spinsters or something. As the movie goes on, she realizes that she doesn’t want to be left out of that aspect of life. I don’t think she becomes worried about it so much as there’s just a moment where she sees a man, Benji (Michael Zegen), who she could have probably dated, with another girl, and she thinks, “Everybody is moving on and coupling off and doing these things, and I haven’t done it and maybe that was the wrong choice.” For her, it’s more about that.
