Whenever I bend a string, my fingers hit the string above or below it. Sometimes my nail will clip it, and if it doesn't, just from my skin pushing then coming away from the string causes the string above the one that I'm bending to vibrate and make noise.

What am I doing wrong, and how can I fix this?

Thanks

Use more of the TIPS of your fingers while bending; also remember that muting unplayed strings is as much a responsibility of your picking hand as anything else.

This. And if you're not, try using two fingers while bending. It lessens some of the force on your fingers so that you get more accuracy.
Signature? What's a signature?

What I found out is that if you bend into the next string, don't let go so fast that the string you don't want to play vibrates. I don't know how to practice this, but it will come in time.
