It's hard for both genders but in different ways.
Women and men face different double standards.
Women are brought up to question a guy's intentions which would cause her to be hyper-cautious and reject a potential husband before giving him a chance. Women are more vulnerable to certain dating risks in a physical way than men. Women face the double standard that she can't be too easy either, even if she has strong sexual desires for that certain man. Men have to struggle to resist and ignore the media message that hitting on women is creepy and sexist. They are expected to be the ones who do all the approaching to try to win her interest. Men have to walk a tight rope to make sure he doesn't wind up in the friend-zone. Men are expected to do more work early on in the dating process with every woman he meets. Dating websites are usually 70%-30% male to female ratio.
Overall, I think the dating world is easier for a woman. But not by a whole lot. There are lots of varying factors that one would define as easier or harder.0
