Although my nerves are not in need of as much consideration as Mrs. Bennet's nerves, I agree that Miss Bingley taxes most people's. Yet have not we all have been nervous about a rival in love at some time or other? She tries so-oooo hard to get Darcy's attention and interest and her is so very hard to get! BTW, is it not understandable that Mr. D. should think Elizabeth is "wishing for his attentions" when he has to perpetually fend off the relentless attentions of his best friend's sister? It is Miss Bingley's ill-natured arrogance that annoys me more than her desperate attempts to get married. At least she has more subtlety in her husband-hunting methods than Lydia Bennet!
