how to decide between two options when we don’t have enough information on either? It could be two job opportunities, as the case of my friend K, or two relationship possibilities.
In the case of two romantic partners, if strong feelings are involved, a choice has already been made 🙂 But if we are at the beginning, and there is just an attraction. For both. They seem interesting in one way or another. Let’s say that one is an excellent cook. But I don’t know enough about his other qualities. And the second is someone we share common interests and values. But maybe his cooking sucks and he could also snores at night.
And you can’t date them both because they are in the same social environment and they would know about it. Then what?
It is already positive to have a choice. There are times when we would get any offer made, without giving it any thought. But it is not always the best thing to do.
So how do we decide when we don’t have enough information to judge what is best?
And how do we keep our options open, respecting our freedom of choice but also the other’s feelings?
My friend K is between a job in Paris, that seems stable for the next five years at least.
And a temporary job in London, which looks like an interesting experience.
In Paris, there seems to be more stability, and her status is better.
In London, there is instability and the contract she is offered doesn’t seem as good but appears exciting.
What would be the best way to act?
