The key to Gatsby’s romanticizing Daisy is his admission to Nick, Daisy, and Tom:He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: “I never loved you..” After she had obliterated four years with that sentence they could decide upon the more practical measures to be taken. One of them was that, after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house – just as if it were five years ago.AND”You can’t repeat the past..””Can’t repeat the past?.” he cried incredulously.  “Why of course you can!.” “I’m going to fix everything just the way it was before,.” he said, nodding determinedly.Also, look at Fitzgerald’s use of water imagery: rain and tears to show over-emotion, sentimentality, and romanticized love.  Specifically, look at the scene where Daisy cries over Gatsby’s shirts.  Gatsby wants it all: both love and money; Daisy just wants money.  She begins crying when she realizes that she can’t repeat the past, that she doesn’t love anyone any more.  She knows she already has money and can’t leave Tom for the romantic Gatsby:He took out a pile of shirts and began throwing them, one by one, before us, shirts of sheer linen and thick silk and fine flannel, which lost their folds as they fell and covered the table in many-colored disarray. While we admired he brought more and the soft rich heap mounted higher – shirts with stripes and scrolls and plaids in coral and apple-green and lavender and faint orange, and monograms of Indian blue.Suddenly, with a strained sound, Daisy bent her head into the shirts and began to cry stormily.”They’re such beautiful shirts,.” she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds.”It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such – such beautiful shirts before..” After the house, we were to see the grounds and the swimming-pool, and the hydroplane and the mid-summer flowers – but outside Gatsby’s window it began to rain again, so we stood in a row looking at the corrugated surface of the Sound.
