While Biddy loves Pip, his feelings for her are platonic. He sees her as a sister figure (a much better one than his biological sister ever was). Pip does not realize until it is too late that Biddy has been a true friend to him.
Because of Biddy's love for Pip, she desires to see him accomplish his goals, but she is apprehensive about his going to London to become a gentlemen because she knows that she will most likely lose him forever. She is a simple character, without Pip's extravagant tastes, and realizes that London society will only whet Pip's appetite for the "finer" things and people in life.
