    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?

    In short yes :

    Longer answer :

    Someone people earns more than others , whilst it's not ideal at the present moment I would hope you would earn more in the future as you accumulate more experience.

    Personally someone's character is more important to me than how many digits they have in their bank account.

    What you're saying is generalising. It's not true for everyone.
    Generalisations exist for a reason.

    It's definitely different for guys and girls as guys are still typically seen as the breadwinner, so I think you will find it less of an issue than guys in the same situation.

    Personally, depending on my own earnings and where I am in my career I would find it offputting in a guy if it meant he was not in a career with much further advancement.

    Most people will say that they would date someone on MW. But the reality is that they wouldn't.

    I'm an unemployed student myself, so I'm in no position to knock somebody who's working atm and even when I do start work after uni, I still won't be turned off by someone who earns minimim wage. Young women should not expect to find a partner who's conpletely financially secure and on a high income. She should help him strive for that, and have something to offer aswell.

    Honestly, people who wouldn't date someone because they're only earning minimum wage are gross and should be avoided at all costs. There is no way anyone with a shred of self-respect would consider dating someone so shallow.

      Anyone notice this bit? I found it funny lol.

      OP, was that a typo or are you really lesbian? Anyway I would not personally take their job or income into consideration. I would not accept someone I suspect would sponge off me tho. Appearance and personality are what really matter.

      I don't mind as long as she's working. My GF is on minimum wage. I wouldn't date a girl who does nothing and doesn't want to do anything though.
