My girlfriend broke up with me a few days ago and unfriended me on FB. It was nothing within our relationship that caused the breakup, but she was getting pressure from her family not to be with me (long story on why they didn't approve) and was so stressed from this pressure and felt that I deserved to be with someone whose family would approve. Anyway, last night, she requested to be my friend on FB again (I accepted), and today, she "liked" a comment I made. She had already changed her status back to "single," though.
I know social media really doesn't mean much, but I'm not sure what to think. It's one thing when the relationship ends because you're fighting or someone cheated or some other negative thing within the relationship itself, but when both people still had strong feelings for each other, and one person called it quits because of something outside of the relationship (and yes, I know how it looks with her family not approving, though they'd really never gotten to know me), it feels different.

She still has feelings, but her family probably looks at her Facebook, so she put "single" to appease them..but I will tell you, if I was with someone and my family didn't approve, but I truly loved the person, there is no way I would end the relationship just because the family didn't approve. That's just me, there is no way in hell I would let my family make that decision for me. If they don't accept my partner, who is part of me, then see ya! Obviously there is something more going on there with her family unit and they have most of the control. If she truly felt for you, nothing would stop her from being with you. Just keep that in mind.0
