Looking for Mr. Darcy

I guess in someway, some people have some idea of what kind of men that they are looking for. Those people that they desire to spend the rest of their lives with. They may admit that those men will be perfect fits for them. I do not believe in perfect.

Which leads me to Mr. Darcy. His imperfections:- “For he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company and above being please.” from chapter 3 of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Those things, those imperfections were what made him stood out. His brooding, sulky and sometimes non-communicative behavior, was what made him interesting. Couple that with his opposite, Elizabeth Bennet, who had her flaws as well, and you have a fantastic love story. One that has some looking for their own “Mr. Darcy”. Or at least a modern day version to him or like him.

Colin Firth did an excellent job in the 1995 BBC/A&E adaptation to Jane Austen’s book. He captured the essence of who and what the character was about; and even today, via comments on youtube, of what some wish they have. But where can he be found? Does he exist?

The book, first called First Impressions, is a very good read. But remember when looking for your significant other, do not look for perfection, and that first impressions do not count. 🙂

  1. Still looking for a Mr Darcy… The Colin one is simply amazing.
    The truth is that he is too perfect in his imperfection, that’s why we keep looking for him.
    Invain we have struggled, it will not do! 😦

      You are right when you said that he is too perfect in his imperfection. He’s an ideal and the best written up male character of a romantic persuasion.

      Nice play on his words.

      Cheers from a land of sun. 🙂
