    Been in my relationship for a few months now, everything is perfect bar one one thing... money.

    I would love to take my partner out for nice meals, go on romantic holidays or treat her to sweet gifts like teddy bears, spar-days e.t.c but I cannot find a single job anywhere, everywhere I've applied for has just turned me down and I'm trying to survive of what is essentially pocket money from my parents...

    Can anyone suggest any advice for me? My partner is very understanding of my financial situation, she has reiterated many times that my money issues wont affect anything between us, but I dont think she understands just how bad of a situation I'm in.

    She loves the man, not the wallet. As long as you try to do your best by here, and enrich her life with love, affection, attention, loyalty and charity....your financial status should be of little concern. It is a tough situation, economically wise

    I really hope you find something soon my friend.

    You need to stop worrying mate. Money isn't everything and it won't buy you happiness.

    Look, get a job at somewhere like a chip shop, you would be surprised how often these places need the staff. Even a paper round would help.

    Whatever you do, don't start playing the credit game, that will be a massive mistake.

    Money isn't everything. Your girlfriend loves you for you

    I'd say to try and bag yourself an interview/job offer maybe have another look over your CV? Or widen your job search? Even if it's not a job that you had in mind at least it's a start and you'll be fine

    Good luck!
