He dropped everything, reinvented himself, and never looked back. Gatsby’s life is very questionable, but his thoughts are not all realistic. He begins to lose his admirable qualities as he does not ask Daisy how she feels about him or any situation at hand, but rather is so wrapped up in winning her over that he does not realize he is losing her by doing so.
