e. g. imagine if you had family, friends or community who held some views which you know wouldn't be conducive to you dating this guy you liked (e. g. be it religion, race, reputation, socioeconomic etc etc.)... have you let that come in your way of getting to know a guy?

I have, just because of above mentioned reasons... although it hurts me too but I have to do it, I have come from a small town, worse religiously known town. The rumors fly here faster than the swift, my father has a great "reputation" to maintain and if I so much as start to get close to any guy in romantic way. People would start to make fun of my parents, they would mock them and my father is not strong willed I might get disowned. I care a lot about them I can't live without having them in my life, it's stupid but I can't. Even if I have to kill my desire for a guy... in my eyes true love is but a myth it all vanishes during the time, many people marry saying that they truly love the person but when "the honeymoon period" is over they start to regret their decision. I have been taught this my entire life, these so-called-moral values have been fed me through out and that's what I know. I know this might sound bad to the readers but that's what it is about being daughter of a religiously known person.0
