I had a very negative experience with this throughout my formative years. I would be engaged right now if I had had the gumption to commit to what I wanted, instead of trailing the woman I loved along through a long, brutal process of trying to win over my ignorant, bigoted evangelical Christian parents.
Things are very shaky between them and I these days, and my sister has since moved in with me. While she was never as judgmental as my parents, she is herself very religious, and I find myself keeping quiet or changing the subject whenever it comes up. I think it would crush her to know I don't really believe this stuff anymore, and the harsh treatment our parents exhibited towards the woman I loved was a huge factor that prodded me away, on top of all the other preexisting objections I had accumulated over the years. Pretty sure my parents would disown me if they knew, I've been told as such mote than once. Scared s**tless to introduce another woman to them at any point in the future. Given that I only just quietly tolerate a lot of their rhetoric I can't say I'd want to be permanently partnered with someone like that.
With all of that established, though, none of this means there aren't men out there who would be happy to share what you're offering and give the same in turn. I thought I had found that with I****am. I'd give anything to take back what happened. I'd give anything to go back to the day she proposed to me and say yes instead. I've been a self-loathing shell of a person ever since she walked out of my life.0

I'm a serious Christian, but I'm not dating someone who won't touch me. I need to be affectionate. To me, affection is for all relationships, even close friends, so why would the person I'm considering marrying not hug/cuddle me? I'm not someone to tell people to compromise their beliefs, but consider talking to your pastor or someone about maintaining boundaries by dating instead of being totalitarian.2
