in consequence of the missive, Not trying to catch him?, penned by Tracy W
From this quote I'd deduce the Meryton people see him as- handsome and rich. In Georgian times, I beieve it was considered a compliment for a man to be considered wealthy and genteel.
I'm sure the Meryton people are interested to know Darcy and in accordance with social expectations (L&T posts), would've been delighted if he'd danced.
Even if Meryton women are 'plotting' for him, Darcy is experienced in social situatons. I doubt any marriage minded ladies of Meryton would bother him.
However, my post really concerned Darcy's haughty manners in public.
If he didn't feel up to Meryton women, he could at least have talked to the the men.
I doubt that dancing was Darcy's problem. He says himself he felt not the smallest interest interest in the Meryton people.
