The article by Valarie Siebert that featured in the Daily Mail is a narration of a woman’s experience with dating after being brought up in a religious family. The storyline revolves around the young girl who explains how growing up in a setting that was grounded upon strict religious doctrines affected her chances of getting a husband after she had been made to grow up hating men. According to Siebert, the young girl whose mother was strict on her especially on the length of attire and other factors that she purported attracted men which general played a major role in the shaping of the victim’s lie. The young girl, Aussa Lorens, also states how pathetic her love life was after the revelation that she had never kissed until she was twenty-three years old despite having had to fend off men who seemed interested in her yet she had no feelings for them. Her disappointment worsened when the person she first had a kiss with was also responsible for beating her later. Her second experience was equally demoralizing because she narrates of having met a man who was twice her age and threatened to kill her, and whom she is still scared of even after being married to another different man. Aussa is saddened by her ordeal with relationships after having had to endure cheatings, violence, and disappointments despite being ready to be in a building relationship. In her conclusion, she advises parents that even though it is their responsibility to keep their daughters safe, it is worse when the ultimate prize is having to leave their children to face the cruel world single-handedly, especially that of relationships, without any experience (Siebert).
