I see no evidence in the text of any women trying to 'catch' him.
Until the Meryton Assembly, the Meryton people were unaware of him. Then due to his haughty, disagreeable manners;
'every body hoped he would never come there again.' ch.3
Darcy's list of complaints on the Meryton people include little beauty and no fashion yet no accusation of fortune hunting by Meryton mamas.
L&T posts in this GR indicate Darcy really had a social obligation to dance. As a gentleman, Darcy would be well used to balls and Assemblys.
There was no reason for him to be so cold and unfriendly. The Meryton people intially welcomed him to their company.
He could at least have talked with the men about local fishing and shooting or cards-he played cards at Netherfield.
As he's always buying books, he may've found out Meryton has at least 2 circulating librarys ;)
By remaining aloof, refusing all introductions how can Darcy fairly judge an entire assembly ?
Or, if Darcy is a misantropist perhaps he should've simply stayed back at Netherfield.
If he is a misantropist, the Meryton people are off the hook !
Personally, I've never regarded Darcy as a misantropist but if he was, I'd feel sorry for him.
