Wanting to be with her true love again, she sneaks visits with him without Tom knowing. Just like Myrtle had, Daisy torn into her own marriage. She loved both men, but as soon as it was found out, the men began fighting for her. “I glanced at Daisy who was staring terrified between Gatsby and her husband…” (Fitzgerald 143). This isn’t what Daisy wanted at all.
Gatsby was drawn to this and he knew that he had to make her his, but the Great War had ruined his plans on any future with her. Gatsby claims in the story that they had fallen madly in love when they were together, but I do not think that is the case. If D... ... middle of paper ... ...he is dating her is just for the sake of making Daisy and Gatsby happy. He would attend Gatsby’s parties with her; that is where he met his neighbor Gatsby. Nick feels no love for Jordan, and in fact, when he breaks up with her when Gatsby passes away, she tells him that she was already engaged to another man.
… I love you now – isn’t that enough? I can’t help what’s the past… I did love him once – but I loved you too”, then Tom states “Even that’s a lie… She didn’t know you were alive. Why there’re things between Daisy and me that you’ll never know, things that neither of us can forget” (108, Fitzgerald). Gatsby was trying his best to be with her once again, but when Tom was brought into the picture it was a battle for Gatsby to win her over.

In the end of the book, no one gets what they want. Daisy stays with Tom in the end because of his wealth and because the real Gatsby she fell in love with is no longer there- he is simply a poser now. Myrtle had no hope of marrying Gatsby because he did not love her and only used her for sex. She couldn’t appreciate what was real, like the love of George.
Tom also uses people to obtain his desires. The first person Tom uses is Daisy when he marries her. He does not love her; he just wants someone that’ll fit into his socialite life. Even on their honeymoon, Tom cheats on Daisy, which shows how much he cares and respects her. “The girl who was with him got into the papers, too, because her arm was broken-she was one of the chambermaids in the Santa Barbara Hotel.” (Fitzgerald, 77) Tom also uses Myrtle as he does not treat her right because he has no plans of leaving Daisy to stay with Myrtle.

This rejection also makes it impossible for Keats to be with his love,Fanny Brawne which is heartbreaking in itself. In addition to that he was struggling to make money with the salary of a writer. If one experienced even half of these troubles he would become depressed or distraught or even suicidal. In Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale” he writes, “I have been half in love with easeful Death” (Keats).
"She married for love, and the love turned to dust. She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them." (407) Lawrence asserts that because Hester is dissatisfied with her life, and refuses to compromise on the lifestyle she expects, she becomes preoccupied with searching for material comfort. However, the "failure made deep lines come into her face" (407), and gradually turns the center of her heart into "a hard little place that could not feel love, not for anybody." (407) Hester describes her husband as an "unlucky husband" (408).
These words bring out the true feelings of Armand, that he never loved Desiree, but it was only a fleeting desire, only a lust. According to Chopin, Desiree was a beautiful girl, “For the girl grew to be beautiful and gentle, affectionate and sincere, - the idol of Valmonde.” (47). Armand loved Desiree only for her outward appearance, not for her character. His love for Desiree and for his son was a superficial love. He destroyed Desiree’s life and he ruined his own life as well because he lost his wife, his baby, and also, he
This was not enough to satisfy Gatsby. One night he and Tom, Daisy’s husband, were in dispute. Gatsby argued that Daisy had never loved Tom, but Tom was sure Daisy had loved him all along. Gatsby told Daisy, “It doesn’t matter anymore. Just tell him the truth-that you never loved him- and it’s all wiped out forever.”(Fitzgerald 139) Daisy explained to Gatsby that he was asking too much of her.
