There's a guy that I really like and he really likes me (he tells me all the time). We've been in a "flirtationship" for over 3 months. So it's more than a friendship but less than a relationship. We have stayed up really late texting each other every single night for over the past month. I honestly can see us having a future together and he says he can too.
Just the other day, he said he wanted to tell me something but he was afraid to because it might fuck everything up. I asked him to tell me because I know we both value honesty. Pretty much he said that we have really different religious views.
My family and friends say that I should stop the flirtationship from going further because of this difference.
I would feel really guilty leaving him like that. I like him waaaay to much. But I also feel slightly guilty staying with him because I respect what my family says. I'm also afraid that our difference will come between us.
Please, does anyone have thoughts on this whole situation? I need help. I feel confused and I don't know what to do.

I look at it like this. You can respect your parents, but DO NOT I repeat DO NOT let them control who you think you have a possible furture with. Boy, has religion done a number on so many lives. You can still believe in what you want and he can do the same. It doesn't matter what you each beileve in, just respect each others views and, honestly, don't "force" your beliefs on each other that'll end badly.
OP stick with the guy, if you love him and if he loves you. Don't let something like religious viewpoints get in the way of your endevours. My girlfriend and I, have slight different religious views, but honestly I like learning about hers and she to mine, there is no forcing our views upon each other. Even then I explored other religious views.
Final thought: Appreciate each others views and don't let parents get in the way of your love.1

It depends on the difference, but honestly, there is probably a reason why God brought the two of you together... It can strengthen faith...1
