I've seen several questions on GAG regarding if ugly men or ugly women have it more difficult, so I thought I'd shoot off a variant of that. Who has it easier in dating (and probably in life, too), shy women or shy men?

Shy women have it easier, because in general guys are expected to approach a girl, so a shy guy would have a harder time getting a girlfriend, unless he approaches or if the girl he likes is very outgoing and takes initiative. But at the same time, most of the shy women I know, including me, also are a bit insecure so that makes it harder to think you'd have a chance with a certain guy you like.1
