What Guys Said 6
Unattractive women have is way harder imo. Men are more visual in their attraction towards someone. It's just how we're programmed. Women tend to be more concerned with the emotional aspect to attraction. So an unattractive guy can do things to make himself more attractive. At least to a greater extent than women.3

Men have it harder. I see even borderline unattractive women getting attention from good looking men yet I see good looking men being ignored by mediocre looking women. It seems like women are valued far more than men whether the attentions are bad or good. All women have to do is sit there and recieve attention. That's why there's all this women out there who have men lined up as "options" and men who just have one girl or no girl. Men don't have "options " we just have to run into the right girl and face rejection and being played along the way and deal with it. Even the most mediocre lookong women will have 5 men after her. And she ll just there craving the attention and toying with them and dispose of them when she's done. A lot of women more so than men are the ones who don't want commitment or relationships.

Depends on the definition of unattractive. If you mean physical them the ladies definitely have it worse as society expects them to be beautiful. Massively shallow and unfair.
Men become unattractive by lack of confidence, poor job/social status etc more than looks (although looks are still a big factor). We are quite lucky that we have greater scope for self improvement I think.
Having said that , I think it's all bullsh*t. If you are unattractive you won't have lots of people chasing you and you won't have loads of options - but when the right person comes along none of that crap matters. Surely that's what's important anyway?
guys, because look at online dating for example, and plus, even good-looking guys have to have a life, have things going for them, have goals and be working towards them, know what they want in life and go after it, have a college education, live on their own, have their life, sh*t together, be a leader instead of a follower2
Guys do because guys will have sex with almost any girl that walks as long the girl is half decent looking she could still get laid.0

When was the last time you heard a word specifically for men who never marry that carried negative connotations?
Example: He's a bachelor.
Example: She's a spinster.
Which one sounds worse to you?
And who ends up as spinsters? Ugly women.1
I think unattractive women have it worse. Women put more emphasis on things like intelligence, social status, sense of humor and the like. A lot of guys are more about having a show pony I think... Think about it, how often do you see a really attractive girl with a not so good looking guy? Far more than the reverse.2
Women have it harder because *generally* tend to value beauty over anything else at the beginning of a relationship.1
