Gatsby wanted to repeat the past, or at least his illusion of it. Despite Daisy being married Gatsby wants to re-create a time when he fell in love with Daisy. It is an idealized version of the past that Gatsby craves. It's been 5 years since he last seen Daisy. Gatsby wants to ignore the years that he wasn't near Daisy and simply carry on with his fantasy.Gatsby's fantasy becomes his reality.
