Hi Just to let you know you are not alone and our hearts and thoughts are with you. It's very hard to leave the religion, it took me over 2 years to pluck up the courage to do it but I'm so much happier now. I've made new friends and they all have different beliefs and don't judge each other for them. They accept you for who you are as a person not for what your religion is.
You are an adult now and you make your own decisions, your parents don't make them for you now. They certainly can't force you to stay in the religion, they might have given birth to you but they don't own you. Do what makes you happy not what will make them happy or you'll have so many regrets. Live life to the full and enjoy making new friends and learning new things.
As for your other post about going on a date, just be yourself, go at your own pace and if he likes and respects you then he'll accept your boundaries. If he doesn't then he's not the right person. Just relax and have fun and do an activity together that is fun and lightens the atmosphere such as bowling or archery or something. The conversation will flow naturally.
