I'm a 25 yr old woman who got out of a long term relationship with my child's father 2 years ago. During that time his income was enough to support us for me to stay at home and raise or child. If I would've been working too, I would've only been able to get a minimum wage job. My babysitter would've been making more money than me, so it made no sense. After we split I had no job experience so I've had a hard time getting work. Since then I've been attending college working towards my BA and looking for part time work. I have a family member that might be able to hook me up with a decent desk job too, but it's a waiting game. My child has full financial support from his dad, and my ex is a great dad and very involved. We have a good polite relationship. I have been lonely for two years and I want to start to date, but anytime I talk to a guy and he asks what I do, I freeze up and feel ashamed. I'm not looking for a new dad for my child, our someone to pay rent as we live with my folks. I have almost no bills besides my phone and car insurance, and I handle that on my own. I have no debt, and wouldn't think of moving in with a guy unless we were married. Even still, I probably won't date until I am employed because I feel really bad about it. Men, what would you think of dating a woman with my situation?

Employment status: irrelevant. You're either somebody's style or not. I'd have no problem dating an unemployed. I'm a student too and plan on making the money so that my wife can stay at home if she wishes so. It's a man's job to bring the money home. If you're unemployed good luck finding a job, I know it's hard unless you agree to shit wages. If somebody starts to love you, they shall give you a hand financially in case you need it and move on to a marriage relationship. It's more about who you are than about your income. Oh and be a proud lady. Don't be shy about being unemployed. If someone has a problem with that it's their problem. There is plenty of disadvantaged people in need so don't feel guilty to have a hard time with jobs. People should feel sorry for your troubles instead of judging you. "Never forget what you are, the rest of the world will not. Wear it like armour, and it can Never Be Used to Hurt You". Yes you're having a hard time with jobs. You deserve support, not mockery. Despise those that treat you bad, they're unworthy to be with you.1
