Ladies, does a guy earning 90,000 dollars have a better chance of getting you to fall in love with him, than a guy who works at Burger King? I've been quite unsuccessful in the dating world, and I was wondering if it was because I'm not a tycoon. I see people that are well-off, but not physically attractive marry supermodel-type women.
I consider myself to be as good-looking as anyone else out there, yet nobody will date me.

As unfortunate as it is, money is a huge factor in how attractive men are to women, there are psychology studies to prove it. The theory is that back when early humans were still in the hunter/gatherer times, the ultimate goal for humans was (and still is) to successfully pass their genes down to the next generation. To accomplish this, they needed resources and health. So, men who were able to acquire resources (through intelligence and/or physical fitness) were sexually selected for, because everyone is looking to raise their chances successful reproduction. This can be seen today, as women are attracted to men who make money, and/or are athletic.
The same way, men are more focused on physical appearance, because a lot of the traits that are considered universally attractive for women signify fertility.
What this means for you is that as unfair as it is, financial status does impact a woman's sexual interest in a man.
I don't know you or anything about your situation, but any man would find more success dating by pursuing a more prestigious occupation, dressing well, and taking generally good care of himself. I've read some of your recent answers, and you sound quite well-spoken and intelligent. If nothing else, don't be afraid to make sure that comes through when you interact with women.
I hope this helped, and good luck!!2
