The reason that Iran is happy about the US "wanting talks" is that to Islam, only the loosing side wants to talk. This is a way for the leadership of Iran to brag they are winning the war.

I remember when the Russians wanted to talk to the Islamic fundamental rulers that were running the country when they took over the Russian Embassy. The Russian ultimatum was delivered and a retreat of the embassy was swift.

Another reason the Iranians want the US to seek direct talks is that it will convince the Iranian masses that the US does not really support them and is willing to sell out the people of Iran for a "peace" with Iran's Mullahs.

This is the greatest fear of the pro-democracy forces inside of Iran.
