|Darcy is Haughty

in consequence of the missive, partially agree, penned by Addy
Darcy looked Lizzy in the eye before turning away so he knew exactly where she was and ought to have considered she might overhear what he was about to say. I think he might have considered it but did not care if she overheard. He is not really behaving in a gentlemanlike manner.
The narrator says he is “haughty, reserved, and fastidious” (4) the last which Bingley also razes him for at the assembly but put that together with his judgment of the folks:
“Darcy, on the contrary, had seen a collection of people in whom there was little beauty and no fashion, for none of whom he had felt the smallest interest, and from none received either attention or pleasure.” (4)
And you have a haughty man too fastidious to give the time of day to uninteresting, unfashionable not so good looking people and when put on the spot by Bingley he refused in a very decided and ungentlemanly manner. What evidence is there that Darcy is shy? (:D)
