] I don't think her situation has changed much since even before her introduction to Edward. To whom would she have been able to have as friend and companion before? I suspect that Elinor would enjoy the company of those who came her way, but I don't think that she counted on it.
In Chapter 11 it is clear that Elinor actually misses a companion
Elinor's happiness was not so great. Her heart was not so much at ease, nor her satisfaction in their amusements so pure. They afforded her no companion that could make amends for what she had left behind, nor that could teach her to think of Norland with less regret than ever.
I believe, it must be Edward because she left nobody else at Norland whom she liked. But your posts made me think about it again and now I could also imagine that she means the "old Marianne" who used to be her intimate friend before Willoughby appeared on the scene or even her father as another post indicates.
