Daisy says she never loved Tom but can not truly stand by that. At one point she did love Tom. But the tom that she laved was the one who treated he like she wanted to be treated and loved her back. After meeting Gatsby again she has realized that she has not really loved Tom in a long time but she thinks she has always loved Gatsby. daisy is torn between the love she once had and the love she might have restored.

Daisy "said" she never loved Tom but at one point she did. But after she meets Gatsby she loves him with all her heart. But once a time Daisy did love Tom.

Daisy may have said that she never loved Tom but that is not true. Daisy loved Tom. She loved the way he treated her. But once Gatsby came back into her life, she realized that she loved Gatsby. She still has mixed feekings about Tom but for right now, she is in love with Gatsby.

Daisy says this because she no longer loves Tom. At one point in time she loved him, but her feelings have changed and she now is in love with a different person. She no longer is in love with Tom because of his horrible attitude towards her and they way that he has been treating her. After meeting Gatsby for the first time in a number of years, it had refreshed her memory and she realizes that it may be Gatsby that she has actually loved for all these years. She is in love with Gatsby now, but at the same time she still has feelings for Tom. She is torn between the two of them.

Daisy says that she's never loved Tombecause she doesn't constantly love him. When he does something nice for her she feels love for him but she will always love Gatsby. She and Tom have had some good moments but not enough to make up for all of the bad times.

Daisy does not know whether or not she ever loved Tom. The Tom she once knew and thought she loved did not turn out to be the true Tom. Daisy also is beginning to realize how deeply she cares for Gatsby.

I agree with Chuck. Daisy is not sure if she ever even loved Tom. She was definantly in love with Gatsby at one point in the past, but Gatsby had no money, which did not fit Daisy's lifestyle. She does not love the Tom she thought she knew back in the day. Now she is in love with Gatsby.

Daisy says she doesn't love Tom but part of her is unsure. She has always had love for Gatsby. She is in a problem she needs to solve.

Daisy says she never loved tom but when she did she had to force herself to say it so she did not mean it. She is confused because she had loved Gatsby first but she lost him so she went to Tom next as a back up almost so she is conflicted as to who she loves but at the moment she feels more for Gatsby.

Daisy lied when she said she never loved Tom. She used to love Tom when he treated like a princess and showed his love for her alot more. I Think she secretly has material love for Gatsby.

Daisy says that she never did love Tom because when she is with Gatsby she feels like she loves him. I dont think Daisy knows what she actually wants

Daisy says that she has never loved Tom. At the beginning of their marriage i think that Daisy loved Tom but she was not in love with him like the way that she is with Gatsby. Once her and Gatsby were reunited she realized that Gatsby is the man that she truly loves.
