Throughout the book, there are number of instances to suggest Nick is not straight. He seems totally unconcerned with women, but is oddly fascinated with Gatsby.

The idea of a man and a woman falling in love, getting married, and having a child of their own is strictly prohibited. Hence the explanation from one of the directors of the World State, Mustapha Mond, who took a group of students on a tour of the “cloning room” and described to the students what life was like in the past, when “erotic play between children had been regarded as immoral” (Huxley 32). When Mustapha finished speaking, “a look of astonishment appeared on the student's faces” (Huxley 32). Kids not being allowed to amuse themselves? They couldn’t believe it.

For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88).
In the third chapter Nick had met Gatsby for the first time at one of the large parties thrown at Gatsby 's mansion.

However, even though Theodore did not stop receiving amazing grades, it did change his perspective of his career immensely.
