I refuse to settle for anything less than Mr. Darcy

I refuse to settle for anything less than Mr. Darcy
(aka – you men need to step up your game. I’m not asking for the world, only that you act like you belong in the one of which I inhabit.)

In response to a recent article on Review Romance, a not-so-subtle ‘boy’ claims that women, the world over, for the past 200 years, are ‘nuts’ because we love Fitzwilliam Darcy, the hero from Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a woman in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of husband!”

A mini-essay of sorts, because I feel you are in dire need of an education, sir.
