    next to your travel



    You know that I am leaving but if you told me you would go, I would wait more [time to go]. I'd rather leave when you were about to go so we'd spend less time apart.

    Hi,
    What's your impression about the texts above, please? How would you say that?
    Thanks!

    The first text is fine, but the use of "next" in the second one is incorrect.

    My alternative suggestion:
    You know I am leaving, but if you tell me that you are going too, I would wait and leave at the same time as you so that we can have more time together.
