If I were Carolina , I would tell Emily about what I saw Cameron in the pub. Because I don't want my best friend to be hurt for a bad man. I also said hello to Cameron in the pub on that day but I didn't talk about my friend at that time. I just wanted him to know I noticed he's got a new girlfriend.

I am not boring when listening podcast. It help me more

hi everyone
in this situation, i think that Carolina and Jamie should tell Emily the story in the pub. sometimes we need to tell the truth to our friends and that will be a better idea than tell a small lie that will lead to another bad story. and i think that emily should know so that she would know more about cameron and won't hang out with him

best wishes

Hi Tangel!
Oh, no I don't.
Sorry, maybe I couldn't write my opinion in a very clearly way. I try explaining again...

I mean that It's better to be alone, without a relationship than to be with someone having a bad behavior with you.

And about what Carolina should do, I mean that she should tell Emily, nevertheless do not tell all things that she saw there at the first moment, it depends on Emily reactions for know the whole true. For Instance:
- Hey Emily, how is going you relationship with Cameron?
- Oh.. It's okay. Actually, he asked me out to a movie.
- Oh dear... I have to say something disappointing and really embarrassing... I am so sorry...
- What happened Carolina?

So in my opinion, in this case, Carolina should not say:
- I saw Cameron kissing a blond girl at pub, yesterday.

I know, that's the truth, but we could say the same in a different way. For instance:
- Ohh... Emily, yesterday I saw Cameron with another girl and they were not acting just like friends. I'm sorry.

So that's it :)

Hi, Marina. I definitely agree with you. Carolina should tell Emily in a "softer way" so Emily won't be too shocked. After knowing the fact, Emily can consider and make a decision on what to do.

Hi Dewi !

Yes, :) !!!

I think that Jamie should to talk with Emily, she's him sister. But i don't trust in Jamie he want forget all. So, it's better that Carolina talk with Emily, she shoud to know. May be she already knows this situation and she need help.

I think Caroline and jimmy should not interfere in personal matter of cameron

Hi all,
I think carolina must tell this to her friend emily and jamie should too. Because Cameron was not supposed to kiss another woman as he is emily's boyfriend. Emily likes and loves him very much.

In my opinion, Carolina should tell her about what she saw, but she should not give out details at first moment. Firstly, I suggest that she talk with Emily about how is going her relationship with Cameron. Secondly, tell to Emily that she saw Cameron with a girl,nevertheless not as just as friend. So, I would suggest that according to Emily reactions, Caroline will be able to give more details about what she really saw.
Supposing that Cameron has had a bad behavior, I would conclude that:
Emily is a good and reliable person and do not deserve to be treated like that, she deserve a mature man. So, Carolina should say what she saw and Emily should get over it ... I am sure that she will... because as said Marilyn Monroe "It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone - so far".

Best regards,
M.
