Love in The Great Gatsby

Usually I don’t struggle with my essays for English too much but for some reason today I’ve hit a bit of a wall. I have an essay due tomorrow where you have to discuss the 3 characters attitudes towards love. For some reason my mind has gone completely blank. Any help for ideas or quotes would be much appreciated!
You could talk about Jay, Tom, and Nick as the 3 characters. Their personalities are different so they view love differently. I read it a few months ago for school so I don't remember much but I hope this helps!
Hi there, below are some study videos on The Great Gatsby that may help you. There's elements of analysis on love from the perspective of Gatsby, Tom, Daisy etc. It's a shame because your essay is due tomorrow but I have more videos coming up over the next couple of weeks which are character analysis of Myrtle Wilson, Jordan Baker and Nick Carraway, so see if they're still relevant by then:
