Daisy loves Gatsby, but I don't think she is in love with him as much as he is in love with her. But at the same time Gatsby can always just be in love with her because she’s high society.
For Jay Gatsby that flaw is Daisy Buchanan. It is his ongoing dream of finding Daisy and bringing back the love that existed five years ago. Whenever Gatsby is with Daisy, it is her "voice that holds him most, with its fluctuating, feverish warmth, because it can't be over-dreamed- that voice is a deathless song" (96). As time passes Gatsby sees Daisy quite often, and falls in love with her more and more. Nick, however tells Gatsby, "you can't repeat the past", but he was quick to cry back, "can't repeat the past?
Relationships in Great Gatsby are not “loving”and tend to be more motivated by money than true love. Gatsby does love Daisy, but is in love with his dream version of Daisy from the first time they met. Daisy does not love Gatsby, but loves the material wealth that he provides. I chose to write my poem about love because in the novel love is always in the air and is very
“I waited, and about four o’clock she came to the window and stood there for a minute and then turned out the (Fitzgerald 147).” Fitzgerald’s description of Gatsby’s enormous need for Daisy’s love and her insensible rejection integrate a connection that the audience may be able to relate to. In Gatsby’s blind love, he incessantly praises the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock as the importance of keeping hope. When Daisy finally cuts off the light, she also severs Gatsby’s hope for his love’s return. The manipulation supports how crucial love is in Gatbsy’s life, showing that he has nothing without Daisy’s returned

Gatsby dreams that he will “fix everything to the way it was before” (Gatsby 110). Instead, nothing changes, not even Gatsby’s love for Daisy. Daisy eventually stays with Tom and Gatsby’s “presumptuous little flirtation is over” (Gatsby 115). At that point Gatsby realizes that there is no hope for a future with Daisy, yet he cannot help the love yearns for her. This shows the immense power that women held over him and the extremes he was willing to go to obtain
He intentionally bought a house in West Egg just so he can be close to Daisy and watch her every night. Finally, he tried to break apart a family just to be with Daisy again. He did not think of consequences it would have. He did not think of the fact that Daisy is married or has a child.

“Turned back eagerly to his scrutiny of the house,” shows that Gatsby is still desperate for Daisy even after she has returned to Tom. Daisy told Gatsby earlier in the novel that she loved him, but in the end she chose Tom and has betrayed the love of Mr. Gatsby. “Watching over nothing,” is Nick’s way of saying the Gatsby’s dream is over yet he still continues to watch Daisy through their kitchen window. Gatsby is betraying himself because he knows that his dream ended earlier that day, but he won’t let go of that dream and is going to such extents to spy on his
