If a guy was never going to make a lot of money, what would be the best way for him to have a chance with you? (We're talking like 25k a year that's it)

I agree with the first answer. Lower your sights.
Otherwise, only a teenager or an idealist will be interested in a long-term relationship with someone who can't make more than $25,000 a year. If she's an idealist, great, eat rice and grow a garden in the window of your crappy apartment.
But, realistically, you can barely support yourself on that salary so you certainly cannot support a family. She's looking at a lifetime of hard work with little reward. And so are you. After the honeymoon period wears off, it sucks.
There is no reason why you can't make more money. Apply yourself, perfect yourself and then go after the girl of your dreams. You won't have to lower the standards you set for yourself or your girlfriend that way.2
