Day 15: Favorite Male Character


I have to give it to Mr. Darcy. I find it so rare to find an introverted hero. Not just a dark tortured soul who is mean because he was not hugged enough as a child and just needs someone to love him.


Introverted. He is not talkative. He prefers to stay with people that he knows. He is extremely loyal to his friends and puts what he thinks is best for them first.


"I have made no such pretension. I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding— certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of other so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost is lost forever."


There's another quote of his I love regarding how he does not make friends easily, but I can't find it now.


I relate to Darcy more than any other fictional character I have read.


I do always find the culture of trying to find a person's Mr. Darcy funny. As much as I appreciate his character, I think we'd be a terrible match. My husband is actually similiar to Bingley.
