This reveals that Gatsby was not always this aloof god of riches that people see. Like countless of men, Gatsby was a man of meagre means who was in Love. Daisy was and is a self serving opportunist. Even if she did have feelings for Gatsby, she chose the way of easy money and an abusive marriage of convenience.
