Woolf, Virginia. Mrs. Dalloway. New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1925. Print.

“Peter Walsh!  All three, Lady Burton,Hugh Whitbread, and Richard Dalloway, remembered the same thing how passionately Peter had been in love; been rejected; gone to India, come a cropper; made a mess of things; and Richard Dalloway had a very great liking for the dear old fellow too.”

Peter Walsh is quite the character.  He does some crazy things, such as stalking girls to make himself feel young again.  After his love falls apart he goes to India and marries a girl he meets.  He seems to act reckless due to his emotions.  His friends still love him though, even though he did not act in the most proper way and made a mess of things.  His friends are accepting since they realize that it was his passionate failed love with Clarissa that caused him to act so reckless and crazy.  They all still like him despite his actions.
