Default Finding partners harder for men...Why?

I've seen several times on here that it seems harder for Poly men to find partners as opposed to poly women. I'm wondering why that is?

I can hazard a guess and say more men are simply drawn to the sexual diversity aspect of polyamory. I could hazard another guess and say that men who are just lookng for the sexual connection are "less picky" because they see the relationship as being more casual and limited. Even my married "monogamous" friend seems to understand the benefits of getting to sleep with lots of women and can't understand why I don't LOL! (I thought the same thing until I became single and tried it. The grass is no greener on the other side after all for me...in fact it was brown LOL!)

I could continue to guess that more women are looking for some one who will commit to them in a traditional sense and therefore do not see a future in a man they have to share. Makes sense to me if they want to raise a family and have household stability. I can keep going and hazard a guess that women are more "picky" in general than the average guy searching for a partner that will include sexual involvement.

So, what do you think? Why the seeming disparity?
