i used to not understand as well, but once i got to college i thought of a reason that seems pretty sound
from an evolutionary perspective, the female chooses the mate based on a couple of reasons. one of these reasons is the mate's ability to provide and/or protect healthy offspring. the male is pretty much just concerned with passing on his dna and then either bailing (some polygynous precursors to Homo) or staying and raising the offspring.
females choosing the mate subconsciously remains in most cases, it seems to me. ask a hot guy to go ask a hot girl if she wants to drat, likely she will say no. ask a hot girl to go ask a hot guy if he wants to drat, and the answer will likely be yes.
So, to me, it seems like it`s easier for a girl to get a guy she wants than vice versa. it`s (more) difficult for a guy to get with multiple girls due to this mate selection habit, so males get props for it. it`s (relatively) easy for a female to have multiple partners
