Elizabeth first thought that Mr. Darcy was a proud, disagreeable man and she could not figure out why he would be friends with Mr. Bingley who is the exact opposite of that.  She also thought he was a snob.

While he is always a bit of a proud man, she eventually comes to see his kindness and his nobility through his actions towards his sister, towards her sisters (Jane and Lydia) as well as the way he comes to not only love her, but to respect her and see her as an equal as well.
