“Hypergamy” is a term used in the manosphere to refer to the fact that women tend to be attracted to high status men. The hypergamy theory posits that social status in men is, for women, what physical attractiveness in women is for men. A man losing social status is like a woman getting fat. Men without social status become invisible as attractive men, although they can still fill other roles in a woman’s life.
The female zone of attraction is to men they perceive as being in the pink zone. The population of characteristics of actual men is the green gradient. (It is a gradient, denser toward the bottom and less dense toward the top, like the air in the Earth’s atmosphere). Notice that in this model, the great majority of men are invisible (in the pertinent sense) to women. Women have a tendency to be offended at the thought of men outside their own zone of attraction even considering the possibility of a love connection. Invisible men however can be in the “friend zone”, not pictured: in this case the woman finds his “beta orbiter” doting validating but he remains outside of her zone of serious prospects. The pertinent acronym is LJBF, “lets just be friends”.
As sexual mores have collapsed this has resulted in a situation where the great majority of men get little or no female attention as anything other than “Beta orbiter”, while the great majority of women spend their time in the “soft harems” of a relatively few “Alpha” men.
The premise of “Game” is that our modern feminist society trains men to live their lives on the bottom half of the model, and that there are specific steps a man can take to move himself into the top half, and especially the top right.
