This passage in Chapter 10 struck me...
"...Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her. He really believed that, were it not for the inferiority of her connexions, he should be in some danger."
It seems that Darcy is not just merely attracted to Elizabeth. He is "bewitched". Is he falling in love? However, it also seems that Darcy has no intention of marrying Elizabeth, because of her inferiority. What are his intentions? Does he think that the inferiority of her connections will prevent him from completely falling for her? Or does he think that he can continue to entertain feelings for Elizabeth without proposing marriage. The first seems haughty and over confident; the second seems ungentlemanly.
Miss Bingley thinks that Darcy is considering matrimony, which is why she is jealous and keeps teasing him about it. But is Darcy considering matrimony at this point?
