Initially, Gatsby's attentions were to have a brief romantic fling and be on his way. He didn't expect to fall in love.

But he didn’t despise himself and it didn’t turn out as he had imagined. He had intended, probably, to take what he could and go — but now he found that he had committed himself to the following of a grail.
