When I referred to his "hanging out" I put it in quotes to indicate that I meant something more than normal polite social interaction with his host's sister. I think that while D had never any marital intentions towards Caro, he did get on fairly well with her at first and did not at all dislike her gushy flattery. He took it as his due. As he became attracted to Eliz, he saw it for the vulgarity that it was and began to dislike her. I can't see why since Darcy is supposed to be highly intelligent and sensitive to vulgarity that he didn't see Caro's flaws in this resepect sooner. If the Bennets and the Meryton people are IHO terrible people for being so vulgar, then surely he must also notice HER spite and vulgarity.
