It is difficult to say what is right and what is wrong. People always judge others by their own point of view and don't even think maybe they are in the wrong. I think It's up to jammy, He must think what is more important for him. Mybe he should search more , maybe he can find a good job in Newcastle.

He must decide and think which one is more important to him the Job, or Carolina. because if he gets the job he probabley lose Carolina. By the way he must told about that to Carolina. It is not fair to not to tell her until he want to left.


Hi guys,
I don't know them ages. Jamie should follow his dreams if they are young as twenties . I think firstly, a person should regulate life self. After you can plan your relationship. that is my opinion. İf the person is your twin soul You shouldn't wait because you can see once and twice in life time. You should value to occasion. You can't wait to be a lot of things in your life. Some people thinks; if I have a car, house and good job I can be serious about relationship. After you have realized who forty years old. I had a same sitiuation. When I twenty seven I met a girl .İn a manner I was a dream.I said myself this is my wife when I saw her. I felt like that. have to chose dreams. I chose my wife Now I am married with her. I don't regret exactly. I followed my dream.

In my opinion Jamie should follow his dream.
We won’t must leave our dreams because other people.
And Carolina should support him and be happy with his decision.
Don’t give up of your dreams.

I think they should follow their dream because they are very young , young people should try a lot of things insted of get prisoner with first love , they have travel and to know the world

I think Jamie should follow his dream. because, if he give up and just decide to stay with Carolina. then he will regret it in the future. and I think the situation is going to be difficult when Jamie begins to regret giving up his dream. So he should keep being enthusiastic for his dream. Meanwhile, Carolina should find something what she wants to do. it is probably difficult to keep their relationship when they are not close. but I believe that their relationship is getting stronger in the situation like this.

Going abroad is really good for everybody in order to expand your perspective of view. One of my friend in Peru said that he'll force his daughter to travel abroad when she gets older. I agree with him, you MUST go aborad to know even your own country. You cannot know your country unless you leave the country.

ı will follow my dreams of course. my dream is travel all over the world. ı'm 35, perhaps ı will be late but ıt's not late.
my two boys are 1 and 5. 1 year later ıt's possible to leave them at gransdparents

May God shower His mercy upon him!
