Are women powerless in dating?

As a guy were told to keep trying, the whole "shoot your shot", "rejection isn't that bad", "just love yourself and you'll be confident", "lower your standards", etc. when we're struggling with attracting a woman or in a dating slump.

We're told women have it worse when it comes to meeting men. Only assholes approach them, all men are just trash, they apporoached a guy and it was scary, or he thought she was easy, etc.

Dating issues with men, seem to always be the guys fault, and dating issues with women also only seem to be the guys fault where a woman's actions, attitude or behavior have no impact. Why is this the case? Is there simply things fundementally wrong with males as a gender?
