The description of the post-Assembly discussion at Netherfield Park includes the following:
as to Miss Bennet, [Bingley] could not conceive an angel more beautiful
If Bingley is to be the hero of the novel, then his chosen heroine is Jane Bennet. Jane is attracted to him as well. What difficulties could there be to a budding romance (for difficulties must occur or the novel would be too short!)? We readers probably have a better idea of Bingley's character at this point, although we know that Jane thinks well of other people. Perhaps this pair would not do as hero/heroine -- I shall look for others! :-)
