Just bend a little less, and get used to not hitting the other string. Work at it slowly.

Of course God has a sense of humor. Look at the Platypus...

you mean you pick the string or the string your bending "crashes into" the other string?

if it's the second, just don't use the very tip of your fingers to bend with, make it so the tip goes into the other string and mutes it. if that made any sense.

I usually just bend it the other way. I know people tell you not to, but bending it up is just uncomfortable to me.

Keep your finger firmly on the string you're playing; intentionally move the other strings up but take care to only press down on the string you want a note to come from.

Don't do that or you won't be able to bend your high E haha.

I have noticed a lot of threads about the same issue recently. Like, a surprising amount.

If it's a big bend on a long note I usually mute the next strings with my pick or fingers.

It isn't the next one over that gives me trouble though, it's usually the one next to that. I do a big bend with vibrato and it sounds.

practice your bends slower until you can do them cleanly at the slower speed - that might entail slowing down to a snail's pace but if so then that's what you have to do.

*sigh* im having the same exact problem. basically, all ive found so far that helps me is keeping my fingers firmly on the string im bending and doing it very very slowly. i spose the speed comes with time. sorry for the same advice everyone else is giving
