As long as Sasuke is out there, Sakura will never be able to completely fall in love with Naruto. There is nothing Naruto can do about this. It's just something that needs a resolution. She is not going to move on like Karin because that is not her character's fate.
Once the Sasuke situation is resolved, then Sakura can finally deal with her true feelings. Sure, Kishi can then go with Sakura having a happy ending with the man of her dreams. She does love him and Naruto will perhaps encourage it. But maybe then is when she realizes that she always loved someone else. It's a cliche that has been used numerous times in Hollywood romances. The girl or guy finally gets what they want, but then decide what they always had was better.
Meanwhile poor Hinata will be there waiting...
It reminds me of the book/movie Gone with the Wind. Scarlett O'Hara was in love with Ashley Wilkes, but he had no interest in her. Rhett Butler was the best guy for her, but she still loved Ashely. No matter what Rhett did, he couldn't get Ashley out of her mind. Rhett and Scarlett, who were perfect together, had a rocky relationship because of this. Finally Ashley's wife died and he was free. But just then Scarlett realized than she never really loved Ashley, but Rhett.

It's important to keep in mind that they're all what - 15 or 16 years old by now? That's pretty young. If Sakura's having trouble dealing with becoming stronger, her lingering feelings for Sasuke, and her developing feelings for Naruto all at the same time, then it's perfectly natural. None of them have fully grown up yet. When Sakura does, I think she'll easily be able to pick Naruto over Sasuke.
Speaking of which, I wonder if there are ninja psychiatrists? A lot of the characters could have used one.
I don't believe there is any reason to fall out of love with Sasuke, Sasuke is just to pure and worth longing for due to him always never looking outside his revenge, Sakura has pretty cemented her deep concerns with Sasuke due to this, Sasuke has never registered her feelings for her because he's never registered anything as a emotion other than hatred and revenge.
Falling in love with Naruto would be very shallow at this point, Naruto being a big hero and a very super pacisfist loses it's appeal after a certain amount of time especially when you are one of the ones who sees it coming. Naruto has proven himself as the better person compared to Sasuke, but Sakura would see it coming and would admit that falling in love with someone like that would be easier, but I'm not sure thats what Kishi wants Sakura to do.
Naruto would be to easy to end up with, Sasuke is different and much more challenging and I believe Sakura should stick to the hard road to achieve a sense of accomplishment if she wins Sasuke.
She still loves Sasuke the same, and wants to help him, but he closes her off because he's always in the dark and Sakura can't understand that so she has Naruto and Kakashi give her hints on how deep Sasuke's pain really is.Quote:
It was all a lie, she lied to Naruto because she wanted to shoulder Naruto's burdern about the guilt confession in part 1, Naruto said she was being full of it and was acting out of character. .Quote:
He didn't convince anyone, she was stern about killing Sasuke like the rest of the village was, he's the one who thinks he can be saved without dying.Quote:
Well this is a shounen.Quote:
I don't think so, Sakura still wants to help Sasuke, she just doesn't know how because no one will tell her anything.Quote:

Naruto is determined to still let Sasuke acknowledge him. Same with Sakura. They both seem to want acknowledgement from this guy despite what he's done to him.
Which brings up my point of Sakura actually giving Sasuke another alternative to feeling positive emotions. Her love will help Sasuke find a part of him that isn't based on his clan or revenge, but rather protection and trust. Maybe eventually love.
Come on now, you can't really believe that can you?Originally Posted by Thabor
I mean, they had more than one significant interaction not about Sasuke on the journey to save Garra alone and then there is the whole tender moment while he was training FRS . And there are plenty of others but i don't feel like typeing up a NaruSaku manafesto.....it's been done before.
Though i guess how many "significant interactions they've had" does depend on how you define "significant". Regardless though, i think she's had more with him than anybody else has. Shikamaru is probably tied with Sai for second place but i think it's a pretty distant second, at least among his peers
Neither Sakura nor Naruto is interested in "acknowledgement" from him anymore. That ship has sailed. He's no longer really a figure whom they respect. They both care about him deeply and what concerns them isn't nearly so much about what he thinks about them, as it is what he runs around doing.
What they want is to prevent Sasuke from continuing to bring disaster to himself and to others.

I don't think a wall of text would change the facts about their dynamic together. Sakura hardly registers on Naruto's importance scale as a main development crutch. Shikmaru and Killer Bee have developed Naruto personally more than Sakuta has.Quote:
Reguardless of screen time with Naruto, she is still irrelevant when it comes to developing Naruto's character into a process of being a better ninja.Quote:It's more like Sasuke is first, then Jiraya, then Kakashi + Shikamaru, and then Sakura since she's always going to be his best supporter of saving Sasuke.Quote:
They respect him plenty. He's part the reason why they are the people they are today and then some.Quote:
And Acknowledge them as a friend or lover.Quote:
To me it's not about fate. It's about the fact that Sakura is just like Naruto, and that's she's not able to abandon a friend.Quote:
I soooo agree with that.Quote:
Sakura is already on the verge of realising that.
I really don't think Hinata is waiting for anything.Quote:
She smiled at Sakura embracing Naruto back then.
I think Hinata's development may be over now.
We'll see, but for what we saw until now, she doesn't seem unhappy at all, or waiting for something.
