Okay, fine, well and good. But then Raf continues to be slightly off-putting to Kate from there on out, into their honeymoon and beyond.
I get that he's got a two-fold plan:
- Pique her interest. He's gambling that his disinterest will annoy her and make her want to capture his attention.
- It's all or nothing for him. Either he kisses her not at all or kisses her good and plenty. He's a bit of a garden spigot that way. On or off.
Which got me thinking of Charlotte Lucas of Pride and Prejudice. She and Elizabeth are discussing Jane. Charlotte says something to the effect that Jane should show more affection than she feels...because few of us have the courage to be really in love without proper encouragement.
So, that's my question. Is it more than likely that all this cold-shouldering would spur a woman to win a man or dissuade her from even trying?
