Their relationship was built of false pretences because Gatsby had never stopped embracing the past and idealizing someone who did not exist. The Daisy he loved was a dream of his own making, and her own insinuations that she loved him may have come from her heart, but she would never have allowed them to take over her brain. She would never leave Tom.... period.
