How to tell your friend that her boyfriend sounds like a loser... watch

    Ok, so maybe not as meanly as the title but that's the basic jist. Bear with me as I'll need to explain a bit... I'll be as short as poss!

    Basically, my best friend went travelling Australia for a year and met a guy in the last couple of months she was there. I kind of assumed that she'd have fun but leave things when she got back home, but they stayed together (although she's cheated. twice.) A year of minimum contact later, she's over there visiting him now and has rang me telling me they're thinking of ways for her to move there more permanently. Under normal circumstances, I'd be made up for her and just be happy that she's happy.

    This however, is what i know about him. He's almost twice our age (I'm 22), lives in a tiny caravan in his mum and dad's front yard, he has a 16 year old daughter who he never sees, he smokes weed constantly and he's got a kind of crap job. The place he lives in is also really small. The kind of place where everyone's related as far as she's told me.

    So anyways, I told all this to another one of her close friends and it turns out she's been a little worried too.

    Should we say anything?? I want her to be happy, but I don't want her to move there just to shack up in his caravan and never do anything with herself.

    I don't know what to do!! Advice???
