What I want is merely not to mingle things.
"I assume that he is capa(bl)e of making SOME new friends, since it does not seem to me that he has known the Bingleys all that long."
Maybe is it a reason why some think he may have known the Bingley family via his father's activity at Pemberley.
We don't know if he has been educated by masters or at a public school anyway.
But making some new friends, he is capable, and we see him doing it along the book. It is very difficult to him at the beginning, and a large number of strangers is irksome or painful to him, this is what we know.
Anyway he WAS haughty.
These are two distinct faults (not exerting enough to get new acquaintances, haughtiness), I was "defending" him only as to the first.
