I just don't seem to understand this. Why are women so choosy about the man they date? I mean...every woman has certain expectations about the kind of man she wants to date, and she will never settle for anyone who doesn't satisfy those requirements, even if he is better in several other ways. On the other hand, men are a lot more accommodating. Suppose a man asks out a woman whom he feels is the best for him but she turns him down, then he surely tries his luck with the next best women, and doesn't really complain about this. Of course, I'm not judging women or men. I just want to know the reason why women are so choosy about the man they date. I welcome answers from both men and women.
P.S. Please don't feel that I'm criticizing women. I'm just looking for a healthy discussion. Please feel free to express your views, but kindly refrain from flaming. Thank you.

partly BECAUSE guys are so damn un-picky...we don't want to be the lower-standard-fifth-girl down the chain you hit on in one bar, the one you try after lucking out with hotter chicks.
Guys will sleep with girls they don't even particularly like or respect just because they're horny, I'm not judging, but of course no one wants to be THAT girl either.
it's like all the screening is left up to us.
That, and girls just have lower sex drives in the first place, we don't have the same physical urgency guys do to get laid, and we don't automatically get the same guaranteed pleasure out of it, that, combined with the fact that we're often negatively judged for it and risk pregnancy make us more selective in our choices.8
