In response to I think there are hints...., written by Kate on December 05, 1997 at 09:11:50
] Elizabeth found "satisfaction in being with him" and is reminded by Fitzwilliam of Wickham (!) who, at this point, was the man she would have married if circumstances had been different - though there was not so much "captivating softness in his manners" as in Wickhams, she "believed he might have the best informed mind" - and intelligence and understanding is something which we know Elizabeth regards highly
Yes, she does. And I do agree with whoever (Mark?) said that she would need to get to know him a lot better before she might grow to love him and would agree to marry him.
] Moreover, I think she might even have considered Bingley if he hadn't been so obviously captivated by Jane and she by him. .... but I won't go into that right now!
This would have been a mistake. I adore Bingley, but I could see such a couple (strong female, submissive male) turning into the Eltons in the future! She needs a Darcy (and he her). And I sense that the Colonel wouldn't be quite as easily directed as was Bingley.
