Darcy only convinced B that Jane did not love him--not that he had not raised expectations in her. After all, Jane had not been discouraging his overtures, and if the neighborhood, his own family and friends noticed his growing affection for Jane, why wouldn't she?
Did Bingley not want to marry a sweet girl he was in love with unless she had similar feelings towards him? One alleviation I can think of is that he was afraid that Jane would be pressured into accepting him even though she was not in love with him. But he still should have tried to make sure of it for himself instead of relying on his friend's judgement.
