I've been going out with this girl for almost a year and I'm a little unhappy with , I've tried to talk about it with my girlfriend and she brushed it aside. I have also realised she's manipulating me into someone i dont want to be, but i'm unsure if she realises it. I want to break it off, which would allow me to experiment with other people, but im emotionally attached, and it would be devastating for her, plus i have my A-levels in a few weeks. I know I want to break up and its unwise to do it before my exams, but is it wrong to start mesaging other girls (not flirtatious). whats also risky is some of the girls im messaging have mutal freinds with my current girlfriend... what to you think?
