My Favorite Movie Couple

I love his inspiring and telling quizzes.  Once on the site you'll find a link for them all at the top of his "home" page.  He also has one for recognizing your ideal lover!  :]

The Dame's Heroine :

It appears this is whom I most favor and act like in my life.

Elizabeth Bennett, later Elizabeth Darcy, is the protagonist of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Though the circumstances of the family situation and the Victorian society require her to marry for convenience and security, Elizabeth wishes to marry for love. Elizabeth is bright and articulate young woman, a lively and playful character. She often displays charming if slightly impertinent behavior that is entertaining and unusual. She delights in her quick-witted nature and does not bother to conceal it.

Men are attracted to women like Elizabeth because she is honest, healthy and interesting. They think her fun to be with as long as they are not a target of her wit. Her eyes shine with intelligent sincerity and men can’t help but be flattered by her attention. However, Elizabeths must remember that even if men fall in love with a playful spirit, they love a real woman.

The danger of being ‘Elizabeth’ is that her confidence is based on limited and sheltered life experience. With no reason at all she believes that she has superior judgment of human character.

It may or may not be true, but if you are like Elizabeth keep it at bay at least on the first date. Believe me you will have your chance to shine in all your splendid colors after the wedding bells.

Your Dame's Final Word:

So, quick like a bunny...go find who you are in literary fiction and comment here so we'll recognize you!

Thank you for suggesting the fun quiz. I am Elizabeth Bennett too, and I'm thrilled! I've always loved this charachter, but wouldn't have thought of myself as bright or witty as Lizzy.
