You wrote: "Mr Bingley danced with her, she was even the only girl with whom she danced except the Bennets and the Lucases."
But that's only the partners that Mrs Bennet tells her husband about -- if the Assembly lasted longer (which is likely, imo), then there might have been several more dance partners. Also, Bingley started with Charlotte, and we are told that she is plain, so Bingley dancing with Mary King doesn't really say anything about her looks.
p.s. I re-posted your message after removing some information that we don't know until next week's reading. Thanks for understanding. :-)
