Losing hope

Okay so I am going to rant a bit haha. Anyways, I am a single mother, age 25, with a beautiful 3 year old daughter. I have been feeling hopeless about finding a SO and am starting to get lonely and worried that I will be single forever. I live in a small town and find it hard to meet people here. I have tried the online dating thing and been on a bit of dates which didn't ever turn into any super serious. My most recent date turned out great and he got scared of commitment and the fact that I had a kid and ended things. I believe that I deserve love and am worried that guys will look past me once they find out I have a daughter out of wed lock. I am the main caregiver but my little one goes with her dad almost every weekend. Anyone else my age and still single?!
