Happy Monday, friends! Over the last five feverish, ouchy-throated days I have, of course, watched both Pride and Prejudice adaptations. So I’ve got Jane Austen on the brain! I’ve done a lot of Austen combinations in past Marry Date or Dumps, but I don’t think I’ve done this one. This is frankly shocking because I think about it a lot. We’ve got Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley, and Colonel Fitzwilliam. At first, it seems pretty straight forward. But people can have very different, very strident opinions when it comes to these men. One of my favorite English teachers in high school strongly felt that Colonel Fitzwilliam was the best man of the bunch. Let me know who you’d pick by writing who you’d marry, who you’d date, and who you’d dump in the comments! Here are my picks:
- Marry: Mr. Darcy – I know he’s broody and opinionated and difficult, but I can’t help myself. He’s Mr. Darcy.
- Date: Mr. Bingley – He’s such a positive, enthusiastic person. Also, a good dancer.
- Dump: Colonel Fitzwilliam – Sorry Ms. Bihn, I do like and admire Colonel Fitzwilliam, but he still seems like the most boring of the bunch to me! Also he needs to marry money to support himself, so he probably wouldn’t want to be with me anyway.
Excited to see your choices!
