in consequence of the missive, Really symmetric?, penned by Therese
For instance, Darcy was confident he knew what was right for Bingley better than Bingley himself. I doubt that he would like his little sister to regard him as an equal, I get the idea that he was pleased that she respected him almost as a father.
And Darcy actually had hopes of match-making Bingley and Georgina -- chap 45 --
Darcy believed his advice to Bingley was entirely disinterested, but the narrator indicates that he may have been subconsciously influenced by his wishes, although he did not mean to -- he was only human after all! I also think Darcy had such a fright over the Ramsgate incident with Wickham that Bingley must have seemed a perfect match by comparison. Darcy probably would not have formed such a plan if not for Ramsgate, Georgina was still young, and a young lady of her fortune and connexions might make a better match than Bingley.
