    So this girl and I have been kinda seeing each other, like we hang out quite a bit and we've kissed twice. But recently we have been having more and more fights - just stuff about her and my (supposed) best friend flirting voraciously at a party when they were both drunk, and how she thinks I don't trust her, which is probably true unfortunately. Also ages ago, she snogged two guys at a party I wasn't at, but she apologised and feel really bad about it.
    Anyway, my other friends have pointed out that she'll probably continue to do stuff like this if we were in a relationship, and that I maybe deserve better than her. But I have no idea how I would go about telling her I'm not interested anymore. She's the first girl to actually like me back, and while I want to be truthful, I don't want to be brutal and hurt her. So any advice on what I should say to her and how I should go about it?

    Just get rid, the longer you leave it the harder it gets. My situation is very similar but I love her so much now there is no way I could break up with her. I don't really act jealous but it makes me go crazy when she goes to parties just because of some small stuff that happened when we first started seeing each other.

    Even if it's tough or makes you feel like an ass, being real and straight with someone is always the best bet. Show others the respect they deserve.
