(scratching head) I live on a poverty level income and manage my money just fine, pay the rent on time and don't bounce checks. where do you get the idea i can't manage my money? i can manage my life just fine was long as i actually am able to control my living environment. the problem is that on my income i have to choose between managing my money and controlling my living environment and i have chosen to properly manage my money.

let's see how you do on my income.

Then the forum is likely failing in it's aims - because there is no criteria or qualifications for dating. Anyone can do it - any time - and if you feel there is any reason that you can not then the reason exists solely in your own head.

What about a guy in his 30s who makes $9 an hour, and is awkward, isolated,ect.

If you can't even afford to move out of one room in the ghetto, and you work full time, that is not managing your life or your funds. Why don't you take a second job, or get a better job? You have a college degree, right?

What about him? (And it's etc., not ect.) What are you not happy with? If you are content there is nothing you need to change.

Why are you even thinking of dating?

Get the hell out of that hellhole, get a better job or another job and become a more happy person. Stop complaining. The time you waste posting here at CD - you could be earning extra income and find a better place.

THEN think of dating!

I hate it when people don't take any responsibility about their bad choices. It is always everyboyd else fault. Suuuuure ...

I know. And it's absolutely, positively not his fault.

Because I own a low rent house, when I have a vacancy, I get to meet dozens and dozens of men who make $8.95 a hour and are applying to rent, along with their wife or live-in girlfriend. $9 an hour does not stop a man from having a relationship.

I've seen some socially awkward guys who are married, so that is not a deal breaker, either. The isolated problem maybe could benefit from some counseling; you must be able to give emotionally in order to maintain a relationship.

"Issues" are cumulative. The more issues a person has that make a relationship difficult, the more difficult it becomes. One issue, two issues, work around them. Twenty-five issues are going to make life harder. A man can find a woman who will tolerate one or two issues. That 25 issues is going to narrow down the dating pool options quite a bit.
