First of all, there are the similarities in situation. Charlotte Grandison also had had her disappointment with a first love, a man remindful of Wickham. Also, both Charlotte Grandison and Elizabeth Bennet had the benefit of female influences that attempted to rein in their friends. In the case of Elizabeth Bennet, the sensible influence was her sister, Jane Bennet; while, in Charlotte's case, the novel's heroine, Harriet Byron attempted a similar service. Incidentally, in the first volume, Harriet - yes, not Charlotte - received two marriage proposals that may remind you of those of Mr. Collins and Darcy made to Elizabeth Bennet.
