Interesting article I found. Allow me to share:
First off, don't let the guru's who sell products lie to you. Any experienced PUA who has actually played the game knows full well that hypergamy is a nasty little biological trait for men these days, it is absolutely merciless and very difficult to compensate for.As evolutionary psychologist Dr. David Buss writes, “Women’s physical attractiveness is the best known predictor of the occupational status of the man she marries and the best known predictor of hypergamy.”
In my case, I literally work for and with, high powered captains of industry. Much of my gaming persona was adapted from these men. In my job as a hotel manager, I am often forced to out-alpha a rich, entitled, and very drunk alpha male who is used to pushing people around and getting his way. I do not ever allow these men to impose their will upon me. I am as alpha as they are, literally and when I'm on the job, that is *my* house. But, exposure to these men has benefited my game in the most awesome ways. I have adopted their mannerisms, their dress. I literally carry myself as an upper middle class/rich man does.
But I'm not an upper middle class businessman, I'm actually quite literally, poor. I make the average median income for a single male. Around 32k. That is not exactly big bucks. This has led to some intersting "game" problems.
Imagine you are a highly educated and financially successful woman. An extremely well dressed alpha male who walks the same walk, and talks the same talk as a CEO or hedge fund manager does approaches you. You never think to ask about his income or his job, because the outward expression of his "wealth" is all over him. His clothing, his mannerisms, everything screams "wealthy man of status". The man never implies or tells you he is wealthy, you just assume he is and he allows you to believe your own illusions to further his own game.
Then, you decide to go home with this attractive "captain of industry" and he takes you to his car and it's just a beat up 15 year old Saturn. "Maybe this is his traveling car." you think to yourself. You get in, the vehicle is clean and servicable, just old. So he drives you back to his place. You are assuming you are going to at a minimum, a McMansion in a gated community somewhere. Instead, he takes you down to the working class neighborhood and lets you into a very spartanly furnished apartment full of hand-me down furniture.
Can you imagine how this would raise tons of red flags in a woman's mind? Even if all her other instincts scream "good catch", her hypergamy meter just dropped off the charts. Major disappointment!
This is the problem that I'm seeing more and more of as my game has progressed. My game has now progressed to the point that the slightly chunky, yet cute working class girls no longer interest me. I'm starting to find myself in venues with highly educated and successful female lawyers, doctors, IT professionals, academics, who not-surprisingly are also amazingly beautiful.
You literally see the shock on their faces when I bring them home, because they sure as hell aren't going to bring some dude they just met in a bar back to their house! Especially if they are married with children, or single mothers.
They really feel that the wool has been pulled over their eyes and instantly LMR increases exponentially with these women. Even if I break through the LMR and get the lay, it's guaranteed I never hear from them ever again.
Sure, its easy to say "improve yourself, get a better education." well that's easy to say, harder to do with school costs being what they are and the fact that generally, despite my relative poverty. I'm quite happy and fulfilled with my life. My career track is upwardly mobile, but we're talkign several years before I even reach a reasonable middle class earning potential.
Note that this is NOT an inner game issue, and the experienced guys will know this to be true, at least any of the guys who have tried to pick up truly high value women while they themselves have low income potentials and only average looks.
Hypergamy is a bitch! Any suggestions on how to compensate for this so I no longer have to worry about the B.S. or Master's degree I picked up on the rich side of town is going to be disappointed and shocked that instead the man she imported all these assumptions to based on his fashion and bearing, she's really meeting a poor man?
