in consequence of the missive, Love., penned by Jim Morris
I dont quite see what kissing has to do with it, but clearly Darcy is drawn very strongly to Eliz. He finds her physically attractive, he finds her company stimulating. But if "sharing life" etc is necessary for love, then most couples of that day could not be said to be in love.. since many married on very slender acquiantance, by our standards.
but I think Darcy is on the way to genuine love, but it is a selfish feeling in the main so far. He wants to possess her, he probably thinks that she is the most interesting and intriguing woman he has ever met and the smartest. So he wanats her for himself and beleives that if he can get her, he can win her deeper feelings. But he does not respect her, he is insensitive about her family's situation, he feels sure that any woman he chose to ask to marry him woudl be eagerly receptive to the idea, because he is "Darcy the rich and great". He feels he's in the right over the Bingley affair and refuses to accept that he might be wrong. So while there are genuine feelings, tehey dont include a respect for Eliz as a person.. and so she rightly tells him she's not interested.
