I can't count the amount of 'we are both shy' questions that advise the female to overcome her shyness as the guy probably won't. Do people think that it is harder in the dating world to be a shy guy, than it is to be a shy girl?

I think it can be equally difficult. Guys, or people in general really, tend to want to talk to outgoing girls/people more since it's easier. Breaking a shy girl's barrier is difficult and can be very frustrating. Her shyness can be misinterpreted as disinterest or as her being snobby. I think most guys see it as a waste of time. And most shy girls aren't really noticed anyway, since they don't take up much social space.
The same can be said about shy guys. Shy people are often forgotten and ignored because they are quiet.3
