First off, most women would rather be set on fire than to make the first move. This has the result of filtering out any guy who doesn't make a move. A lot of the guys who won't make a move, do so because they are timid, which is a trait women don't want. However, there are a lot of men who just genuinely don't know that the woman is interested in them. Very few guys frequently make moves on tons of women.
The second reason is that women have unreasonable standards. This isn't to say that they have high standards, though they usually do because they may believe that they're more valuable than they really are. Women will filter out men over nonsense, like whether he paid for her dinner. It ultimately becomes a game where you succeed by meeting unreasonable demands and by building up attraction.
So I don't believe that women really have limited dating options, I think they unintentionally restrict their own dating life to the same types of men. They're surrounded by men who would be interested in getting to get to know them, but who don't ask out every woman they meet, don't know they are interested, aren't great conversationalists and/or aren't willing to play by women's bullshit rules. Women going after two major types of guys.
The first guy is a guy who is genuinely very high value, but because women have so many restrictions most women want him.
He is legitimately better than most of them so he won't even bother dating lower tier women, because why settle? If he does bother with lower tier women, it'll just be for fun and sex.
The second guy is everyone else who can survive in the arbitrary world of women's dating. Most of these guys know the rules and use them to their advantage. They can have sex with women and be scumbags because they know how to play the game.
We see this also when women complain all men want sex.

Yeah, if we won't date the 1st guy who is interested in us because we don't have anything in common (and/or aren't attracted to) we are evil and deserve to burn in hell. Makes so much sense. 😒2
