About loving his situation and money, I would like to tell that one can integrate them in a person's "virtues" (as for Mary King ;-) ) and fall in a real love with a rich person, of whom one wouldn't have fallen in love if he/she hadn't been rich, without being a money hunter. It is the same with beauty (reproductive ability), even more so with physical strength and cleverness (ability to maintain the family, just like wealth). Or a person may consider only persons in a certain social bracket : I really don't find it wrong.
Here it seems evident that to Miss Bingley, Mr Darcy's situation in life is a strong attraction, probably his being fashionable, handsome, clever too, and she would really like to be his wife, and feel a very happy wife. Does it means that she loves him? I don't think so. She feels something for him but I don't see it as love. There is a real jealousy at least.
