I agree. Mrs. Gardiner is questioning the strength of Bingley's attachment for Jane and Lizzy says, 'At his own ball he offended two or three young ladies, by not asking them to dance, and I spoke to him twice myself, without receiving an answer. Could there be finer symptoms?" In other words Lizzy is saying that a young man (in this case Bingley) who is generally very civil must be truly besotted/in love if he displays such uncharacteristic lapses of civility in the presence of the young lady who is the object of such feelings.
