In the end Gatsby’s hope on winning Daisy back was so high that ever time the phone rang or every corner he turned he looked and waited for her but she was nowhere to be seen. During his last day, last hours of breath he spent the time waiting for Daisy to call him and tell him that she was ready to run away with him and live happily ever after, “ I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn’t believe it would come and perhaps he no longer cared (Fitzgerald 169).” but she never did call.

Here it implies that Gatsby did indeed throw these parties and was fine with anyone making an appearance, it was all simply in hope that one girl would be there one night.
