I don't know if Helen sees Julia as her only chance for love, however. I think she just really loves Julia and is perhaps too self-conscious that they're growing apart, growing on different levels almost--or at least becoming aware that they've been on different levels all along. Helen even comments that Ursula is more Julia's `type` or `class`: smart-looking, neat, "put together." She seems to see herself as more plain, down-to-earth, in another league from Julia.
I wonder if anything will develop between Ursula and Julia, based on Helen's thoughts. Waters is definitely foreshadowing a conflict or struggle in Helen's and Julia's relationship--Julia is becoming more famous with her books, they must keep their relationship a secret, Helen is unconfident and seems to question Julia's love for her... very curious to see how this plays out.
