In the Friends finale, Rachel is on her way to Paris to start her dream job in fashion. Ross waits until the literal last minute to tell her how he feels and beg her not to go.
Firstly, regardless of Ross, she literally stated that she had gotten everything out of her old job that she could. This was her dream! She should’ve gone and lived it out. Because if I remember correctly, it wasn’t a permanent placement either, so it’s not like it would’ve been forever.
Secondly, Ross is not worth leaving your dream job for! The entire series he was not a good boyfriend and even when they were just friends he was an ass. Im not even going to argue about the “we were on a break” statement, but I wouldn’t want to be with someone that decided to move on from me the night we decided to go on a break. He was always way too jealous and controlling.
I think Rachel deserved to go and find herself in Paris instead of settling for someone who I believe is way less than what she deserved.
