The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby, I was casually sorry

I'd like to know the meaning of "casually" in this excerpt from the chapter three of The Great Gatsby:

Dishonesty in a woman is a thing you never blame deeply—I was casually sorry, and then I forgot.

Thank you.

Casually gives us the sense he was not deeply sorry, only sorry in a general way.
