People really think she’s miss perfectionist when deep down Daisy isn’t at all. Gatsby believes the love of his life deserves the best and wants to have a future with her. He think’s he knows her and won’t do anything to harm him which is actually the total opposite of what he thinks. She definitely convinced him that she was what she said she would be. During a conversation with Nick and Gatsby about Daisy, Gatsby pronounces that “Her voice is full of money," he said suddenly.
He acts as if he is a father and is entitled to tell others how they should act. Tom only thinks about himself and how his wealth allows him to feel superior to those around him. Gatsby is a mysterious man who is blindly in love with Daisy. The only thing he cares about is for Daisy to come to him. He spent the past 5 years making money to show that he worthy of her and that he can be a wealthy man as well.
Gatsby met his first and only love, Daisy. Since that moment, Gatsby’s life “[has] been confused and disordered” (TGG, page 18). The book’s narrator, Nick Carraway, tells the reader that if Gatsby could “once return to a […] starting place” (TGG, page 18) and relive his life slowly, Gatsby would be able to find what had “disordered” his life. Despite all the promises, she betrayed Gatsby and married Tom Buchanan, one of the wealthiest men in the United States at the time. After Gatsby returned to Daisy, in five years, he felt really disappointed and betrayed; this is what let to the increased desire to become wealthy.
Gatsby might not want any trouble so that people don't have a reason to exploit him. His dirty past is something he wants for himself and he wants to keep it that way. Gatsby shows how following the dream broke his moral compass, for he no longer can tell the truth and his whole life has become a string of lies. Unfortunately, Gatsby’s impure ways pay off, which only motivates him to continue to be dishonest. Under his false identity, he wins the love of Daisy Buchanan, otherwise known as Gatsby’s dream.
At this point you may start to wonder if Jay Gatsby was in love with Daisy or was he in love with the thought of Daisy. This five year pursuit of her allowed Gatsby the time to think and imagine what she is like when he hasn't seen her in years. He can perceive her to be how he wants her to be, not how she really is. In the end, as Gatsby is staring into Daisy’s eyes he grows more and more in love with the IDEA of Daisy that he has conjured up in his mind, not the actual Daisy that is in front of him. Finally, at the end of the night the two, Gatsby and Daisy are so involved with each other and blocking out the outside world that they forget that Nick is even there or set this whole thing up, so he leaves the two lovers alone to be

Some just happen to become wealthy while others strive to do so. The latter was what Gatsby did. Gatsby met Daisy a couple years before and instantly fell in love with her. However, he didn’t know a nice girl like Daisy could negatively affect him. He was relocated to a different place so she moved on.
His love for Daisy is obsessive and over barring, his hopes unrealistic and his attentions become a burden. On the other hand, her will is weak, her heart uncertain and her life too complicated. Their story, as can be foreseen, ends badly; Gatsby takes the blame for a crime Daisy unwittingly commits, with hope that this unselfish act of sacrifice will finally earn him her love, but instead he ends up
