Easier for girls to find attractive partners?

    So it seems, in my very humble opinion, that it is easier for girls to find a partner as attractive as, or more attractive than, themselves.

    So often I see situations where a couple break up and the girl is the first to find a partner of equal or "greater" looks (objectively speaking), yet it has always been suggested that men have an easier time compensating for a lack in the looks department.

    Has anyone else noted this and is it in fact the case?

    I disagree. Women punch above their weight just as often as men do when it comes to physical traits of attractiveness.
