Applying for Credit Card using Household Income?

Tried applying for a credit card this morning but it got declined. When I called up to ask about it, she said that basically I don’t earn enough/have too much expenses.

The thing is that I put in the expenses as our monthly household spend, where else the income is mine alone. Should I split the expenses in half?

Thanks in advance!
