There isn't really any way at all to tie this back to Bella and her heroic love for her vampire, other than to say that the mythical misdirection doesn't fool her one bit and her life becomes about nothing but myth and legend. But, then again, I suppose that isn't my call to make.

On Bella's end of things, I've seen plenty of girls fall head-over-heels in lust with guys and want to start dating them - or even start dating them. When the rush wears off, they usually break up, either because they drive each other insane, or because the girl realizes how shallow her attraction actually was and she seeks greener pastures.

Let me see the girl in this world, who after breakup with words "You don't belong with me." "I don't want you to come." won't be afraid and scared. And if we add her viewing Edward as a god, and her as a clumsy, average, non - selfconfident girl...

I agree that it's absolutely completely natural that Bella would fall for Jake. It's almost a pattern for her. She looses her reason for existence, and Jake becomes her new one. We could debate all day about whether or not that in itself is healthy, but it is what happened, and it's only natural that she would have very strong deep feelings for him.
I tend to disagree with the theory of Jake only being in love with or loving Bella because she was going to be Renesmee's mom, mainly because I'm fully on the side of the theory that Jake would have been her natural true love, her fate, and Edward was something more - supernatural.
