Are you looking for dates or are you looking for marriage opportunities? If you are solely looking for dates, then perhaps your motivation is skewed, and it shows.
That being said, having been out of the dating arena for almost 20 years, I can tell you back then it was the same story. Your complaints are nothing new. When I was on the scene, I dated many women that were spoiled brats. some I worked with to bring them down a notch or two, some I just dropped all together without even a phone call. My sister was a spoiled brat so I knew how to work with that type of mentality.
If the woman you are pursuing is worth it, you have to put in an effort. If she accepts the efforts you make, but refuses to make efforts herself, then make your point clear of what is expected of her. She can make an effort then, or not. If she doesn't make an effort, move on.
I can say the same to the single women, but, I need to tell them they need to bring it down a notch or two. Most men in their 20's and early 30's are not rich like the chicks' daddies- accept it, and look for other qualities in men. I know of several women whose standard were too high when they were in their 20's, and they woke up at 35 years old realizing there were no eligible single, not fat, men left. Now, if they are even dating, they are dating divorced men with kids, and we aint talking male executives.
