To begin, fake love has many characteristics which includes: self concern, infatuation, adultery and an absence of trust. These characteristics are seen in most of the failed relationships between characters. Self concern relates to Mr. Collins and his relationship attempts with Elizabeth and Jane Bennet. When purposing to Jane he tells her “it will add greatly to my happiness” (103), signaling a self centered desire versus a fulfilled love. Infatuation is seen between Bingley and Jane.
Bennet] always kept a very good table, she did not think anything less than two courses could be good enough for a man on whom she had such anxious designs, or satisfy the appetite and pride of one who had ten thousand a year” (378). At the time Mrs. Bennet lived that is in Georgian England, meals were more than just a mere sustenance. Dining in Pride and Prejudice is basically used to impress others and to allure fitting husbands. Nonetheless, it is an Afghan culture that meals are commonly associated to celebrations and gatherings, nothing to do with proving affluences and wealth. For example, on page 169, according to tradition, Soraya 's family would have thrown the engagement party, the Shirini-khori-or "Eating of the Sweets" ceremony.
The difference between first-generation immigrants and their children are significant. When Maxine invites Gogol to have dinner with her family in her house, Gogol is surprised and confused. As described, “This unexpected piece of information deflates him, confuses him. He asks if her parents will mind his coming over, if perhaps they should meet at a restaurant instead.”(p129) This proves the difference between American culture and Indian culture. As Gogol is more familiar with American culture, he feels his parents’ way of inviting people to dinner is vaguely foolish, and that leads to the fact that he prefers to spend more time with Maxine’s family rather than his own.
She is waiting on Patrick, her husband, to return home to go eat. They normally go out to eat on Thursdays, but he seems tired when he returns. She realizes he is tired and states, “Darling, she said," If you 're too tired to eat out tonight, as we had planned, I can fix you something. There 's plenty of meat and stuff in the freezer,” (Dahl, 1). This shows how Mary is very nice to Patrick, and desires to make him happy.
Connie’s first encounter with Friend was at a diner when he stated to Connie, “Gonna get you, baby”(pg.1142). Because Connie was use to this type of attention, she did not view it as strange that an older man was calling her in such away. However, if Connie had seen Friend as dangerous instead of just another man, her kidnapping might have been prevented. Later in the story when Friend showed up as Connie’s house, she walked outside and talked to him instead of questioning how he knew where she lived or calling the police. Oates described Connie's interaction with Friend by stating,“Connie liked the way he was dressed, which was the way all of them dressed: tight faded jeans stuffed into black, scuffed boots, a belt that pulled his waist in and showed how lean he was, and a white pullover shirt that was a little soiled and showed the hard muscles of his arms and shoulders”(pg.1145).
“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy - in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other,” Robert A. Heinlein says., What most people can not account for is the acknowledgement of the fact that love and jealousy is both there at the same time. Within the short story, “Cathedral”, by Raymond Carver, Carver expresses the theme of how a character who feels an enormous amount of jealousy changes form an encounter throughout the story. The Narrator 's wife invites her old friend, a blind man, by the name of Robert to her home. This triggers an inner conflict within the Narrator.
Scott Fitzgerald. The very fabric of love pertains to the mutual accumulation of intimate feelings and true mutual endearing of one another. In the case of Tom and Daisy, well as Daisy and Gatsby this fails in the name of love. Tom and Daisy’s marriage was to carelessness and the same stature of wealth along with their social class. Their distancing during the development of the novel shows that they truly do not love each other for their qualities as people but the quality of their pockets and their name.

Davis’s first display of desire in the novella is with Deb when she went out of her way to bring dinner to Hugh. She had to walk through the cold rain across town to the iron mill. Deb desires to please Hugh as it’s seen evident in a short exchange upon her arrival, “‘Is’t good, Hugh? T’ ale was a bit sour, I feared.’” (7), to which Hugh responded, “‘No, good enough.’” (7), to express a minimal amount of gratefulness. Hugh keeps the conversation brief as to minimize his time away from working but Deborah desires to please him anyway with a meal she provided.
This prevents her from painting what the popular eye can see, and the popular heart can feel (THE NOVELS).” While the Austen’s marriage proposals tend to leave some readers emotionally dissatisfied, this plainness is purposeful in that it highlights the main themes of Austen’s works and comments on marriage itself. This intentional blandness is strongly present in Northanger Abbey and Sense and Sensibility; while the proposal scenes in both these works seem rushed and occupy a small space at the end of the novels, they both reflect the growth of their respective heroines. Marriage proposals in literature are often a heightened point of the work, embellished with great detail and passionate, direct discourse. For instance, In Charlotte Bronte’s Villete, after chapters of heartache and loneliness, heroine Lucy Snowe has a moment of respite as M. Paul Emmanuel takes her hands and warmly whispers into her ear,
