I would say girls have it slightly easier. Slightly because they can take quick measures that can remove a lot of their problems. I'll explain this in point 2.
1. If a guy went up to 100 girls and asked for sex, all would say no, unless he's really lucky, maybe 1. If a girl does the same, about 1/3 of guys would approve.
2. Girls can eliminate the fear of bad/creepy guys by making it blunt. Say NO. Don't play hard-to-get. If you drop mixed signals to a guy you find unattractive or creepy, he'll continue to worry you and the fear gets severe. Just say NO, and these guys will flock away. Nothing is more clear than that. Girls shouldn't be a challenge to any guy. It's either yes or no. That makes dating much less stressful.
3. It's very hard for a guy to get creeped out when a girl follows them or gropes them. Don't listen to society calling girls "sl*ts" or wh0res". I personally never used those terms. However, a guy can be seen as creepy if he comes on too strong in any form, whether flirting or the touch barrier or teasing. So it seems hypocritical for society to say guys should make the first move if women have equal rights.
Since most of society is extroverted, they carry this view of dating which I don't understand as an introvert with social anxiety. If you truly like someone, just say "I like you". You are not easy if you don't play games or hard to get. If the chemistry is with the guy/girl you like, nothing can take away the passion.
What do you think?
