ibingiay enough time, I think she would have. Maybe not right away, but if Edward didn't come back in years then maybe. Even after 5 months of his absence, Bella was still reluctant to even think about being with Jacob other than their friendship. Edward said, "Time heals all wounds for your kind." And, I think that's true.
Just to add my two cents for Eclipse... the "I pag-ibig Edward with my whole puso and soul" yet "I pag-ibig you too Jacob" never set right with me. If you pag-ibig someone with "every fiber in your being", then how could you possibly pag-ibig someone else? I think that's a mistake in Stephenie Meyer's writing. If you look at it logically, it makes no sense and is unreasonable.
Actually, now that I've had some time to ponder on this question, I'm swaying to the other option that she wouldn't get over Edward. In New Moon, we read that everything reminded her of Edward. And she did everything she could to hear him. She put herself in danger to hear him. And, if he didn't come back, wouldn't she continue to endanger her life to hear him? This particular question, I could go on and on about, but there isn't enough space. lol But I'm kind of torn with this question. haha
Yes. pag-ibig is a fickle thing, and it hurts like hell, and it is incredibly powerful, but i don't think there is one person for anybody, and whilst you may always pag-ibig who you have loved previously, it may become inactive (as in you pag-ibig them but don't want a relationship with them/ you pag-ibig someone else madami at that moment because of circumstance) and can be allowed to fall into the background because you have grown and changed as a person since they were there. I think that maybe the case with the Bella/Jacob thing, that eventually her pag-ibig for Edward would have become inactive and she would naturally fall for Jacob, because i believe they had chemistry and would have worked very well as a couple and that would be the natural pairing if she had never met edward.
jacob will keep pushing and she will eventually give in sadly she will do it unintensially and keep giving jacob signs and maybe he is just drawned to her because he senses renessme in her but thats just my opinon
I don't think that Bella would've ever been with Jacob. If you have ever truly been in pag-ibig then you will understand my reason why. Jacob was there for Bella when she needed him the most but in her mind it's just as a friend. She loves him intensly but only as a friend. She never dreamed of Jacob, there was never a chemistry there. I think that friendship is all it would've ever been for her. Her pag-ibig for Edward would never have been able to be replaced.
i think that if edward hadn't come back (more like if she didn't save him) then she would have ended up with Jacob. Even before alice came back she was already considering moving on and she truly believed that edward didn't pag-ibig her and he wasn't coming back, so why wouldn't she if the opportunity was right there in front of her.
If he had come back a buwan or two after he did, then no. If he had stayed for a couple of years, then definitely yes. bella does pag-ibig jacob, and even being on team edward i think that eventually she definitely would have started dating jacob. and they might even have gotten married.
