We had a silly debate yesterday about this at work yesterday about who has it easier in the dating scene, guys or girls? The majority, including me agreed that girls have it easier. I've never been turned down for a date.
Then one of the girls brought up the fact that ugly girls have it harder than ugly guys. She thinks she is ugly and says she gets rejected all the time... although she isn't. She's actually a cute girl, and many guys at work and outside of work (we're good friends outside of work too) are attractive to her. She's just too shy.
Anyway I think she is right. Not in her case, since she isn't ugly. She just needs confidence and guys will like her. But she is right that women who aren't pretty have it a lot harder than men who aren't attractive. I've seen some men who women won't look at twice attract girls who are pretty. However, you will never ever see an attractive man with an ugly girl. You will rarely see an unattractive man with an ugly girl. Ugly women simply aren't dateable.
Anyway, that question was kind of divided. Some people agreed with her, and many people disagreed.
Just wondered what people here thought.

She's definitely right. Unattractive girls have it tougher for a simple reason - the man is "programmed" to find an attractive female counterpart that he finds worth forwarding his genetical information to. The woman, on the other hand, is "programmed" to find a male counterpart with the easiest "access to sources", which in today's world almost always means "rich". So a guy can be as ugly as an ass but if he's got a lot of money, he's still okay - women still find him "attractive" because of the easiest "access to souces" he has.4
