Jane Austen illustration Plain Jane: “He is undoubtedly remarkably plain; but that is nothing compared with his entire want of gentility. I had no right to expect much, and I did not expect much, but I had no idea that he could be so very clownish, so totally without air. I had imagined him, I confess, a degree or two nearer gentility.”

-Jane Austen in Emma

Observing Jane on an online dating date would, I think, be the most humorous thing I can imagine. I feel for any fellow who made an attempt of showing their regard for her.
