Both of the stories have a man who is in love with a girl who they would do anything for even if it would hurt them in the end. “He couldn't possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do” (The Great Gatsby, 148). Gatsby didn’t want to leave or do anything until he actually knew what Daisy final decision would be. He would do anything to have them be together because he loved her so much. Gatsby would hold onto hope that they would be together and he would keep trying everything possible to try to win her love even though it would hurt him. When she assured him that she had not kissed the other man, he knew she was lying--yet he was glad that she had taken the trouble to lie to him” (Winter Dreams, 5).This quote is showing how Judy would treat Dexter and how he would just still have a little hope that she cared about him.

In both stories the men would hold onto some hope that they would be with the woman they wanted. Gatsby and Dexter would have done anything for Daisy and Judy. Altogether the stories have a man who is in love with a girl and would do anything for her but they just get hurt in the end from

Lightning crashes overhead as I race back into the house, dripping wet. I was just returning back from an adventure in the woods. The storm was unexpected, even the forecasters had never expected it. Luckily, I managed to make it back inside safely. I peered out the window as I took off my raincoat. The rain pitter pattered against the pavement softly, creating a lulling sound.
