Even though I believe the affect on the individual will be the same regardless of gender, I feel guys are the ones that end up suffering more than girls do if they are not raised, disciplined, taught how to be independent, responsible by their parents a lot growing up, etc.
A good example is Elliot Rodger, he was spoiled, coddled by his parents, and he never got laid or got a girlfriend, his sister was probably spoiled, coddled a lot by the parents to, but yet it didn't stop her from getting a boyfriend, getting laid.
You see the point I'm making here? Overall, its basically life's, reality's, societies gender expectations of each gender and what each gender is gonna either be attracted to in the opposite sex or gonna be lenient on before strongly considering someone a potential boyfriend/girlfriend.

i'm going to get a lot of flak for this, but it's because of how the world sees the man and the woman
Old beliefs still stick, and the man is still considered the solid independent provider who's supposed to stand on his own legs. Thus if he can't handle life he get the answer "tough luck" then is ignored.
Women is still seen as the weaker sex, and while it's chnaging they're still pampered for by society, and is MUCH more likely to be helped if they're struggling.
Also, men are still taught by society how they're supposed to treat women nicely and always do this and that, and women is taught how men should act towards them by treating them nicely and do this and that, yet women are never really taught to treat the man th same way.
I KNOW it's an unpopular opinion, but i suspet it's the truth. Sexism is still very much visible, and it's not only affecting the women (as some want you to think).1
