The last one was a very literary description of the importance of themes and their relatability to the current times, this one is more of the many reasons why I think Mr Darcy is literally a gift to humanity and how men should be more like him and women should want to be with men like him and in general how ardently he disliked you, but still fell in love with you. (Although, I really wouldn’t support men being as confused about their feelings as he was about Lizzy- unless they can carry the handsome ruggedness- NOT think they can carry, but actually carry!!!).
So, here goes some of the many reasons why I love Mr. Darcy. Warning: there might be a lot of Colin Firth gifs coming your way.
THE WHOLE ARDENTLY LOVING THING
He is so brutally honest with his declaration of love and doesn’t apologize or play games when it comes to love. It’s so rare to see men who are still ardently in love with you these days.
ADMITS WHEN HE’S WRONG
First, he’s a silly enough to make mistakes (like judging Lizzy and her sisters and their mother and then convincing Mr Bingley to not marry Jane), but he’s man enough to admit that he was wrong in doing that and that his actions only made his dear friend completely miserable and sad. It’s really rare to find men who’d actually do that.
THE MAN CAN WRITE
I know Mrs Bennet says that “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” But, I’d like to point out that the real truth is it is a truth universally acknowledged, that nothing pulls the strings of the heart of a well-read girl better than a well-worded letter. With men asking women out like ‘wil u b ma gf”, the true artisanship of handwritten letter professing true love and feelings is lost. (And I’m not joking, a not-so-gentleman actually asked me like that- I ardently refused).
HOW HE TREATED LIZZY
Even in today’s “modern” times, men lack a sense of general respect for women. Mr Darcy, the perfection that he is, really saw Elizabeth as an equal. He behaved like a real gentleman to win her trust and love- and all of it with such devotion.
HE BEWITCHES WITH WORDS
Not only did he write very well, and make amazing declarations of his love- but, he was witty and ‘bewitched me mind and soul’ with his words.
ACTUALLY GETTING SHIT DONE WITHOUT EXPECTING CREDIT
When Lydia ran away, Mr Darcy was actually the one to sit on his horse and ride off and actually find the couple and sort their situation out. He didn’t do it to look good in front of Lizzy, he only did it to help Lizzy and didn’t even want her to find out that he was her Knight in Shining Armour- because that’s how amazing our Mr. Darcy is!
FOR WHEN HE SAT THERE AWKWARDLY JUST TO BE IN ELIZABETH’S COMPANY
I dont know anything more awkward than just sitting on a couch- as uncomfortable as one can imagine- all because he wanted to sit in Elizabeth’s company- even if they didn’t speak a word.
