The problem is that when you go on a date the first thing you talk about is your social self or your career self. Like what youve achieved in the past year or what youve been doing. What your hobbies are etc. That is where I am not too confident I would sound appealing because I really have failed and failed and haven't been doing anything for a while.
However with my core self. I see myself as strong, always persevering, patient, kind, friendly, Etc. But how do you let your date see thing all while saying you haven't had a job at the same time?
