Gotta strongly disagree with this premise, even as an extremely broad generalization. If anything, I'd see it as the opposite.
Seriously, do you have any idea just how many women stay with a man on the premise that they can "fix" him? Yet, there are very few men who will walk in to a relationship with that idea (the few generally suffering from some version of "White Knight Syndrome").
"Standards" are such a personal thing, and vary throughout life. What was perfectly acceptable to me in my 20's would not be tolerated now, and yet some attitudes that I shunned back then are just fine now. Priorities shift between looks, accomplishments, personality, compatibility, and so many other things as you hit different stages in life.
The one generalization that I would feel comfortable with is that those of either gender with the highest "standards" (the 5-page, single space, "Must Have" list) tend to be the ones who are single the longest...

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
