I became very angry when I found out Cameron cheated Emily. If I were Carolina I would definitely tell everything to Emily. My friends are really important to me and I hate cheaters. I never can forgive a person who cheat me and never want to be with them anymore .
If I were Carolina I went to his seat as soon as I saw him and let him know that he shouldn't play with a girl . I think Jammy is his friend and like him and he is on his side, so he dissuaded Carolina to go the Cameron's table.

Hello

I've got a question about a preposition. Jo says: "That seems too much to me." I can only find websites with "too much for me". Is 'to' wrong and 'for' right?

Bye

Hello User_user
Both 'to' and 'for' are possible in this sentence, but are used in different contexts. 'to' is used to express an opinion (as Jo does here) and 'for' tends to be used more to speak about your own personal experience or desire. For example, if I were serving some food and put too much on Jo's plate, she'd use the preposition 'for': 'That's too much for me'. But here Jo is expressing her opinion about what Carolina should do.
All the best

We just should respect their decision or we should just respect their decision.

Which one correct? Can you help me?

Hi cuneyt,

The second option is the best one. You could perhaps hear the first, but the second one is much more natural.

All the best,

Hi Kirk,
Thanks a lot.

Hi Guys again Me=)
I don't ( do not) want to say anything about their relationships but I can't (can not) keep quiet. so I want to take my stand. Unfortunately this is foolish situation. Perhaps somebody wil say me, "What did you see or understand?"
Firstly, I will criticise to Emily. She didn't ( did not) research about her boyfriend before They didn't (did not) deside to become lover. İt is my rule, I should survey about my new girfriend.. Maybe this is sound crazy. like sharlock homes...Yes, I am!! . I must say both of them( Emily and Cameron) İf I were Carolina or jamie. The rest is their choose. they can break up or continue their relationships. We just should respect them sadly Camerons action is sufferable. I can't (can not) cool if were being in the emilys position. I am impatient Beacuse the relationship is holly all over the world.You shouldn't ( should not) ever lacerate and cheat your friends, wifes, darling Etc. Good night everyone. All the best.

I think Jamie should ask Cameron and tell him that Jamie saw him with the girl at the pub. I think that Cameron will tell Jamie the truth and about the girl. but If Carolina asks Cameron, maybe he won't tell the truth. so, Jamie should ask him. If he is cheating on Emily, then they have to think about what to do next.
