    Hi Everyone!

    As you've guessed I'm a girl on minimum wage. I feel like someone's career and future prospects has a relation to attracting a partner. I'm just very insecure. I work as a kitchen assistant on minimum wage and feel like I won't find a girlfriend.

    I'm really shy and find it hard to meet new people, like I literally can't push myself to approach someone. I feel like I suffer from social anxiety too and I get really sad and emotional all the time for no reason.

    Anyway would you take into consideration someones earning potential when thinking about being in a relationship?

    Somewhat. I guess I'm looking at the long term now, for the future like when it comes to raising a family.

    As a rule of thumb, guys aren't really bothered by the income of a woman, and women are bothered about the income of a guy.

    I would definitely not care at all about my partner's income.
    I would however hope she has ambitions.

    I'm sorry you go through sad times.
    I hope you are happy and find someone you'll fall for soon!

    Yes, because mostly I am shallow for looks, I might be broke as well but most importantly because I understand that the low level parts of life are part of the path to success.

    I mean personally, when I think about getting into a relationship I tend to focus on their personality/character/beliefs....salary is very VERY far down the list.
    Also, I'm more independent when it comes to earning. I like to pay for my own things and would never get with someone because of how rich they were.
    If there was someone I genuinely like, finding out what they earn wouldn't bother me.
    That being said, I know lots of girls where it'd be a dealbreaker. Depends on the person.

    I don't think it should matter how much the potential partner earns, but rather how intelligent and kind s/he is and how s/he's planning to improve in the future.

    If that is you in your avatar and you are indeed really really really really sweet then only the most pretentious of men would even consider your current wage.

    I'd happily marry you next week (once we get permission from my girlfriend).

    In that case she's even more likely to say yes since she is too.
