“I feel far away from her,” he said. “It’s hard to make her understand.”

Meaning

Ironically, even though Gatsby and Daisy only live a stone’s throw from each other, he feels that the 5 years apart have placed them eons away, emotionally, from each other. He only has these parties and his lavish lifestyle to serve as a prop to impress Daisy in hopes that their old love will be rekindled.
