Gatsby is determined to get Daisy back and in order to do this he has to meet her again after five years have gone by. Gatsby is aware that Nick Carroway lives next door to him in West Egg and that he is cousins with Daisy Buchannan. When Gatsby speaks to Jordan privately at his party, he asks her to ask Nick if he can set up a meeting between the two of them – Gatsby and Daisy – so that he can meet her again and try to begin a relationship with her.
