Mr. Darcy....

One of my Jane Austen groups online, is talking about Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.
Someone actually said we need more men like him.

Um...he's fictional!  Men like him do not exist in real life, nor do I believe they ever really did. Not to the extent he's written to be.   I think we put Mr. Darcy on too much of a high shelf. 
It's no wonder so many of us out there are having relationship issues, we were fed a solid diet of Mr. Darcy our entire lives. No man can live up to him.
