Having BPD and in a relationship

I've been online dating for two years. I am on a disability pension and don't have custody of my kids because of my illness. I have nothing but being judged by men constantly. My mental health is well managed now but the same questions still arise. What do u do for work. Why don't u have your kids. What I'llness do u have. Which usually ends the conversation. The guys that accept me have major problems themselves which is not healthy for me because I need someone stable. Anyone else in this situation.
