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,

Exactly...

Hi Marina I read your comment you are probably right but according to your openion Emily could think something wrong about Carolina if she says as per your openion there can be some reasons and first of all I'm not going to be concervative about women Carolina might think wrong about her friend may Carolina isn't happy with my love she seems jealous about Cameron because he is going to perform live at gig he could become much popular in the future and Jemie is only musician you know apparently my openion is concervative but it happens in real life best friends can have break up their older friendship neverthless it would be better if she is sincere with her she has to say everything what she and Jemie saw at that place if Jemie doesn't cooperate with her she has to proof his relation with that stranger blond girl then Emily can understand and on that bitter truth otherwise she will never undestand and being a good friend we have to be honest and sincere with our friends friendship isn't only to make fun get together our free time we can help each other moraly and financialy :)

I think Carolina as Emily friend she should tell her cuz at last everything will be out about...but in the opposite Jaime needs to be close to him who was kssing the blonde girl I forgot his name actually so Jamie needs to be close to him for his work...I suppose they have not to tell Emily!

If I am Carolina I would no hesitate to tell Emily, because I think Emily better know the truth before she become so into Cameron.

hello everybody.
In my opinion, Carolina should discuss with Emily about Cameron ( what does he tell her about his program and his life, what does he do to make her happy..). if Carolina notices that Cameron isn't suitable for Emily, she has to think about the right way to make Emily know by telling her or talking with Cameron that she saw him kissing a blond girl and if he isn' t serious , he has to breach the relationship. I think it's infair to let Emily dreaming .

To beat the traffic in the city, in Accra, I took a motorbike from the Arts Centre to the Post Office. By the way, the pub I really liked while I was a six form college called Gymnasium student was an American pub called Wall Street, which had a small dancing floor with show lights.

hi
I hope you are fine
I want to thak you for reading my comment .
I think they (Carolina and Jamie) shouldn't tell her (Emliy) because the relationship between Cameron and Emily might be break up .and that isn't good.
In my opinion I think it depends in the situation if it makes the relationship worse I think it is better to keep it secret.

with best regards

Hello, it's interesting your opinion, i would like to understand it.
Do you think that it's better to have a relationship with lies than don't have a relationship?

Thank's

Hello Tangel,
Thank you for your comment.
I think the person always say the truth, but in situation like this if we keep the truth secret the relationship will be keep in right path. and that is what relationship should be.
You can say (Jamie should talk to Cameron and he told him that) and you did the wrong thing and Emily is a good person to you and you should be honest to her.
Maybe Cameron listen to Jamie's advice and follow the right path.

I hope you get my point.

thanks alot
