He’s just not that into you…

“I do not think I was very much in request–.People were rather apt not to ask me till they could not help it;–One’s consequence you know varies so much at times without any particular reason–.  There was one Gentleman, an officer of the Cheshire, a very good looking young Man, who I was told wanted very much to be introduced to me;–but as he did not want it quite enough to take much trouble in effecting it, We never could bring it about.”
