I'm very family-oriented, and I respect my parents, but I am an adult now (21 years old) and can make my own decisions. I've met a guy online and have been talking to him for a few months now. We really would like to start dating, but I'm really nervous about it because of how my family would react and I don't want to have to lie about how I met him, etc.
How can I get the guts to not care that much about what they think, but still not be an a-hole about it? I feel like I'm trapped with this issue since I still live at home and can't afford to move out.

Well you do still live with them so I guess they can still feel that way about it. And why do you even have to worry about any of this? You don't have to even lie.. which takes half a second to say I met him at ___. Can just say I met a guy, no one can tell you how to 'get the guts to not care', you just need to tell them if you feel that strongly about it, do you leave near him?0
