I like this girl (we are 22) and was 90% sure she liked me back, but she has VERY strict parents and in her culture/religion there is NO DATING or time alone with guys... anyways, I asked her if she wanted to catch a movie (the day after her mom yelled at her and made her cry for being home later than 10PM)... she waited an hour to reply and told me she was going to lay low on the going out for a while so that she can get on her parents' good side again. I was worried it was rejection, but she texted me the next day to talk to me...
Today, I go online and she had posted a picture of her going out to a MOVIE with her BROTHER... now, I know that it's a little bit different to be going to a movie with a family member than a potential romantic interest/a different guy, but now I'm sitting her with ANXIETY through the roof and feeling like I'm going to puke... am I over-reacting? Is it different because it's her brother?

You are overreacting, just calm down :)
It's just her brother. My parents are very strict too and before turning 18 I was very limited and could only date a guy if my parents approved. Also sometimes they would say: you have been too social. So I needed to get away a bit haha. But I still had to and was allowed to be social with family members.
This makes my parents sound very harsh, but they are okay. They just didn't want me to get too influenced by my friends back then which I understand now. They were pretty unstable.0
