"Today I met a man, and I thought he was my soulmate, but then he turned out to be a conceited, judgmental, small-minded lemon-sucking jerk."

When free-spirited writer Lizzie Bennet meets handsome lawyer Will Darcy at a party, she's smitten...until she overhears him reject her as a potential girlfriend in the cruelest way. Hurt, Lizzie decides he's the last man in the world she would want to date anyway. But as the two cross paths again and again, Will proves he has a warm heart under his frosty attitude, and Lizzie must admit that her wounded pride might have made her a teensy bit prejudiced.

Haha that entrance was impecable. You so lived up to the Darcy fantasy. Now, let's watch him crumble that beautiful illusion into bits, shall we?

That's the story of my life, right there! I quote movies all the time, but alas, no one gets it. There, there, dear.

I must say, I loved your summary for this. I'm always drawn to a strong female lead and properly executed humor, so this seems to be right up my alley. Plus, I'm a sucker for anything Jane Austen related. 😄

Haha I love how you're preserving Austens humor here. But at the same time, you're adding modern nuances. So far, I'm really liking this!

Why do I relate to this so much already! 😂
                              
                              Except, on occasion, I have been  known to whittle away the day. 😆

Pretty interesting take on P&P. I was thinking the marriage-obsessed mother in today's would seem amiss, but then I read about Ryan Reynolds and smiled!
