“In Austen’s time, introductions were burdened with rules. A man could not introduce himself to someone of higher standing than himself, nor could he introduce a friend to his acquaintances without their consent. Women always had to wait for men to initiate the introduction, and they could not be introduced to a stranger without an acquaintance conducting the meeting.”    – Source Page
