I have a boyfriend that is almost always grounded, and when he isn't, he's really clingy. I've been thinking about breaking up with him for about a month. (we've been dating for 10 months) I like him a lot, but I've been spending more and more time with one of my female friends, and we've gotten really close. I'm really starting to like her a lot. She recently told me that she really likes me, is it wrong if I break up with him and wait a few weeks and ask her out? I feel really guilty about liking her, but I can't top myself from liking her more.

Generally, we advise that when you're in one relationship, and are trying to make decisions about staying in it or not, that you try and focus JUST on that relationship, not on who else you might date if you weren't in it.
So, setting this girl and the possibility of dating her aside, what would you want to do about the boyfriend you have now (and I assume are in an exclusive relationship with?), if dating this other person wasn't a possibility? You say you've been thinking about breaking up with him for around a month: what's been your process in that? If you have wanted to for that long, why haven't you yet?
