So, I was wondering what some people's theories about that are. Do you think that the answers and votes are a good representative of the general population? Do most women outside of GAG think that men have an easier time in dating than women?
I'm throwing my own personal feelings in here, but I feel like women have to give us guys some credit. We do have to go through more than them just to get someone's interest. I've never seen a handsome guy with no people skills getting good looking girls. And, the fatties, they tend to go out with the good-looking, skinny guys with no people skills.
So, it really does seem, to me, that the odds are stacked against most guys. The only thing that protects us men from living the rest of our lives alone is that we live in a monogamist society and so at some point, most of these women have to find someone if they don't want to spend the rest of their lives alone either.
But, I am guy, and my opinions are likely to be biased. I'm hoping that some women will provide some good arguments as to why women might have a harder time in the world of dating than men.

I think Women have it easier than men-to be honest. All we have to do is look cute, act stupid, and just go with the flow. However, Woman are way more complex that that. I give guys huge amounts of credit to be able to go up to a complete attractive stranger and get her number. That takes confidence, humor, and a good attitude in general. You have to understand that woman, especially attractive woman, get approached by some weird, some perverts, some old, some actually decent men, all the time, we learn to develop these defensive techniques because some men, NOT all men, I am not generalizing---but most men, do not have the best intentions. It would be easier if we had signs hanging from men saying which ones were douches, which ones are nice, and which ones are wasting our times.
Woman are bitchy and annoying, no doubt, however you have to understand that we do not get to choose who is attracted to us, and who is not. I would never want to change a man or force him to grow up, however that is what woman have to do when a man is not ready or mature enough for a relationship.
If a man knows exactly what he wants, I think it could be easier for men, however I think most learn from experiences. Woman are emotionally connected to a man, We have to be cautious who we let in and do not let in.
Overall, I think Women do have it easier, and Men have it harder. Both Genders get screwed over, and have done the screwing over. I know Women who have cheated and Men who have cheated.
You do have some control over what man is attracted to you, to some extent - the better you look, the more guys are attracted to you.
To some extend yes-The better you look, the more men you attract, you get a better selection more quantity..It is more about a Higher Probability that a decent man will be attracted to you than an unattractive woman. You can not change the person whom is attracted to you, who they are as a person. Its how composed you are as a person, How you hold yourself, and How you see yourself. Have someone talk about themselves for 5 min straight? The way they do it, and the language they use-tells you alot
