Battle of the Sexes: Who Has it Harder in the Dating World?


Podcasts have become my life. I listen to far too many. Everyone who’s anyone has a podcast these days, it seems.

Just last week, I was listening to one of my favorites and the main topic was about dating. The host and his guest were talking about their crazy experiences, giving advice, and speaking their truth.

The guest, who happens to be a rather funny comedian, mentioned how he feels women have it easier in the dating world. “All they have to do is show up.”

This made me perk up. “Uhhh, say what now?”

There’s so much more to it than that. Lord only knows what goes through our heads when we get ready for a date. The craziness in our busy imaginations is of our own doing, yes, but it’s still very stressful.

His point of view was this: Men have to get up the courage to ask, they have to plan the date, pay for the date, make sure the evening goes off without a hitch. All of this while being impossibly charming. It’s nerve-wracking stuff. Yes, I agree.

However, women have it just as hard, if not harder when it comes to the dating game as a whole. Let me tell you why…

Let’s talk simple statistics. There are more women than men in this world. The 2013 U.S. Census Bureau states 161 million women to 156.1 million men. Boom. That’s it. My argument wins. End of blog.

Haha Just kidding, I’ll elaborate.

Men have a lot more options. If I’m flirting with a guy, chances are three other women are flirting with him too. Women are forced to “compete” with one another, and it takes a lot of energy.

It’s also increasingly difficult when you are a woman of a certain age. Thirty is a weird time to start dating, tell me if you agree. You may not want to go younger because the man’s maturity level is probably not on par with yours. Older is ideal, but all the older men I know are looking for those lovely ladies in their 20s.

I get it. The typical woman in her 20s is fun, flirty, and down for anything. She’s not looking for a commitment. I can’t compete with a girl in her 20s haha Just not happening.

Look, dating is not easy for anyone, and since I’m not a man, I can’t really say how hard it is for them or not. All I know is what I see, what I hear, and what I experience…and I’m right ;o).

Anna K 18 June 15 04:00 This post doesn't really give any concrete reasons as to why women have it harder in the dating world. I think it really boils down to the person - I'm sure we all know men and women who are having amazing dating experiences and those who are crashing and burning. I agree that men are traditionally expected to do the asking and paying, but I personally have no problem flipping that script. Text hided expand
Lucy 23 June 15 19:04 i think men and women both have it hard...but most men that i know of can shake it off when the girl they have their eye on isnt into them or chooses someone else...women can be more sensitive than that and rejection is the worst. Text hided expand
