Can you think of any examples where women have the dating game harder?

There are advantages and disadvantages that can be talked about, but as to whoever has it harder really depends on the individual and how that individual's values coincide with the culture. This is under the assumption that genetic abnormalities and other deformities are universally disadvantageous.
Here are 3 examples.
3. There are women who abide by old religious marital customs and have no say in who they marry. Dating is not even a question really. You either marry your chosen partner or be disowned. Strangely, when you grow up under these conditions it suddenly doesn't seem like ethnocentric, dogmatic bullying because it's the norm. Still, I find this reprehensible. In more secularized societies the rituals are less strict however still narrow.
2. Women on dating websites have a disadvantage. Yes, as a guy who scorns online dating due to a lack of success, I will concede that volume doesn't equate to quality. Online, guys operate at the mercy of their hormones and dating websites are window displays of dopamine-inducing novelty. The common involuntary question that goes through the majority of our minds is "how long do I have to talk to this girl before I get to fuck her?" It's an entirely superficial environment and these are the results of actions unburdened by real consequences. Who can be trusted?
1. Many women have been brainwashed by fairy tale propaganda (Disney, religion, etc). Not all, perhaps. Maybe not even most. But some good percentage of women hold their ideal standards on par with the valiant knight in shining armor, the honorable man who rises above the dirty, putrid pigs and embodies the true meaning of love. I'm not going to say that this type of man doesn't exist, but I will say that if he does, he isn't going to kick the door down and sweep you off your feet. You won't meet him grinding against you on the dance floor. He requires patience to unveil himself. The disadvantage? You're probably not good enough for him.1
