Mr Darcy Teaching Romance To Sports-Mad Men Of TodayAt Jane Austen News we were delighted to discover that Mr Darcy is inspiring some of the men of today to be a little more romantic. In an article published on online magazine Verily, self-confessed "sports-crazy, competitive guy" Justin Petrisek explained how his "greatest wealth of dating knowledge has been gleaned from non-other than Mr. Darcy in Jane Austen’s classic Pride & Prejudice." Some of the top things he'd learnt have been that "real love is never a trial-free affair", and that "it’s okay to be vulnerable, because without vulnerability there is no chance of authentic love." The full article is available here. We just hope that maybe more men will follow Justin's lead and start looking to Jane for life advice!
