I have always felt that women have a massive advantage during the initial phases of dating because they don't have to do much.
Men have to muster up enough courage to approach women, be presentable, try to impress them etc. and usually still have to go through multiple rejections before a woman eventually says 'yes' (I'm referring to 'common men' here, not the super hot hunk or the ultra rich man).
On the other hand, woman can just sit around without batting an eyelid or raising a finger, yet they would still get approached by men. All they need to do is exercise their lip muscles to utter a simple 'yes' or 'no'.
Of course, once a relationship has been established, both partners need to put in efforts to maintain the relationship. But initially, during the dating phase, the ball is almost always in the woman's court (especially because it is really hard to get a 'yes' out of a woman when approached for a date). Agree or disagree?
Expecting votes/answers from both men and women.

I think its the same for women. Women have to muster up confidence and impress too. Men feel rejected and hurt when he realises that the woman does not want sex with him and it can cause his self esteem to drop. Women feel hurt and rejected when she realises the guy does not want a relationship with her so she will feel like she is not good enough for love and a relationship and that guys just only want to fuck her and not care about her.
You just have to realise that eveyone, men and women do not all have the same intenions. Everyone is not looking for the same thing and people date and have sex for different reasons. As long as you are calibrated with the woman you ask out then she is most likely going to say yes to you.
I knew this guy who was so thirsty and full of himself. He thought this lesbian girl was sooo smoking hot and the fact that she was hot was reason enough for him to keep trying her. Sometimes guys just really need to use logic. The girl ended up really bruising his ego. He really thought trying to attract a woman who is not even attracted to men was a really good idea. Or maybe he totally ignored the fact that she was lesbian. I dont know what was going through his head. but my point is, when you are not calibrated with the woman you ask out, of course you are gonna get rejected.1

*warning I have a very cinical view of relationships*
Girls have an advantage when it comes to getting no strings attached sex. Also they have an advantage for early stages of relationships and they control sex with in a relationship. Guys have more of an advantage when it comes to commitment and don't have to worry about getting fucked and dumped or being used for sex.
When it comes to any sort of trade (yes I see relationships as somewhat of a trade) the person who wants something the least has the most power/control. Generally guys want sex more than girls and have a harder time getting it so girls have the advantage here. Generally girls want commitment and marraige more so guys have the advantage there. So early stages of the relationship the girl has most of the control and the guy has to work to impress her and make her happy so he can get sex once she starts having sex with him, some of but not all of that power is relinquished. Now after the girl starts having sex with the guy, the girl wants to try to win the guy over and get him to commit and propose to her. Convince him that of all the girls he's been with that SHE is the one he's should drop down on one knee for. So the guy has a little more bargining power here since the girl GENERALLY want marraige more than the guy since the guy generally has more to lose from a divorce. I don't think a guy wants to blow 5-10k on a ring and risk half his wealth just for the fuck of it. However once you get down on one knee, she owns your ass. So choose wisely ;)3
