To me it means someone who wants to play games and wants someone to play games with them. Play house during the day. Play doctor at night. It's someone who wants to be laid back about EVERYTHING in life with no passion to improve or grow as a person. They'd rather take themselves and/or their partner for granted because "life is just a game" so they've adopted a sophomoric, carefree attitude about the world.
We only get one life. If we only had one dollar to depend on, would we be so careless with it? Would you want a partner to be carefree and waste it? I don't get this phrase and I don't attach it's meaning to anything positive. If anything, I'd prefer the opposite. What do you think about it?

Well let me start by saying its one of few out and out dealbreakers for me if a girl takes herself too seriously.
It does NOT mean no goals or ambition, quite the opposite, it means not being able to see the big picture. Its placing too much value on yourself, to the point that you think every thing you do makes a difference to the world. here's an example... getting into a legit fight with your SO because you voted for someone and they voted for someone else - cos your ONE vote is going to swing it rite?
Actually, i've found people who take themselves too seriously often get so hung up on the minor details they can't see the wood for the trees and end up never reaching their goals.2
