Is it bad to ask someone out on a date while in a relationship?
I'm a sophomore in high school and I've been dating a junior for a few months. We've been drifting apart for a month now and I've been planning to break up with him. The spark just isn't there anymore. The problem is we're both so busy with schoolwork that we don't have time to properly sit down for coffee and talk for thirty minutes (which is how I'm planning to break the news to him).
The school year is almost over and I've been really into this guy in my French class. He knows I'm in another relationship so he would never ask me out, but I'm tired of my current relationship and I want to move on. Would it be rude to ask the guy in my French class out on a date when I currently have a boyfriend, who I'm planning to break up with soon? I've never gotten with the guy in my French class in the past because of shyness, bad timing, etc., but now I want to take the chance before school ends to finally go on a date with him. If I miss this opportunity, I might never get the chance again.
I'll probably ask him out tomorrow, which is a day before finals week, then break up with my boyfriend over the summer. I'm just afraid that this is in bad taste, and I'll lose respect from the people around me. I think it's not wrong because I'm just asking the guy from my French class on a date, and I'll plan the date after I break up with my boyfriend. I just have to ask him for his phone number before summer starts and before the break up with my boyfriend because of timing. The worst thing that can happen is that the guy from French will say no, but I just don't want him to say no because he thinks that I'm unfaithful in relationships.
So do you think the guy from French will understand where I'm coming from and do you think this is disrespectful to my boyfriend? Also, does this situation say something about my maturity in dating because I'm not severing ties before getting back in the dating pool? I don't know if I'm fit to date at all but I do want to get myself out there.
