Sup man, maybe I could help out a bit.
Yes women do have a easier time in finding a guy then a guy finding a girl...it is like that online, and it is the same in real life. Look at how often a guy has to get rejected before someone says yes? Men do not have the luxury to just look pretty and all the girls just approach us. Naw, that will never happen. When girls tell you that unattractive girls have a hard time...that is BS, because if that was the case why is it that the unattractive girls have a ton of ex boyfriends around, and kids and stuff like that? (I call that baggage, luggage and/or carry on's!) Sure, women are naturally more picker but that is simply because they get more looks and responses from men. They will never understand what men are going through when it comes to dating. Maybe when women stopped being scared and send out emails to men...hmmmm... (Like that will ever happen HAHAHAHA!)
Some tips with the online dating thing is to get on to legit dating sites (meaning sites where people have to pay for services). That gets rid of 3/4's of the assholes that your meeting online. When you use free dating sites like okcupid.com, craigslist.com, plentyoffish.com, zoosk.com...you will always get trouble. You will find women that are substandard because they feel they got nothing to lose. (They are losers, scum, "insert profanity here"). Granted, even on pay sites like match.com, eharmony, true.com, etc..you will find horrible women on there as well, but your chances will be higher in meeting people that maybe on your level.
Women on online dating sites get hundreds of emails a day and they just hit "Delete" every time they see their inbox light up. Guys may get about 10 emails every 3 months. Believe me on that. (You can experiment with that yourself...just make a fake profile on a dating site pretending to be a hot women and see how many guys contact you.) You can be the nicest guy, and send out the most beautiful email...and BAM! POW! "Deleted".
Lastly, never settle...NEVER. That is what men do when they can't get the attractive girls. Yes it is tempting, but don't do it. You will get your woman, it takes time, you know...
You also may meet your woman in real life, not on some stupid dating site. So don't use the internet as your only resort.
I have been on tons of dating sites...and out of the vast majority of rotten women, they are some good women around to.
Hope that helps somewhat, and good luck on your search.
