in consequence of the missive, Insupportable, but why?, penned by Margaret S
According to the narrator, it is that the locals are unattractive, unfashionable and uninteresting that Darcy dismisses all of them. It certainly doesn't sound like he thinks he's facing a room full of cunning seductresses, or even one.
Nothing is said about his judgements about their sincerity, and if Darcy is even aware of the fortune-hunting attitude, I know of no evidence of it. Do you?
In fact, if Darcy has the fear of fortune hunters to a degree that he is afraid to meet people, he sounds a little neurotic to me. Darcy may have his faults, but I don't think he's neurotic. I know of no evidence in the text that Darcy feared fortune hunters to that degree. Do you?
