Portrait of a modern Delta
How surprising is it to learn that the man in the picture is the second husband of a divorcee. The only real surprise is the fact that both children are his. Hovering, mate-guarding posture? Check. Wearing the baby-sack? Check. Uncertain facial expression? Check.
And yet, he's a tall, fit, decent-looking man who could, in another universe, be the raw material for an Alpha. He's no Gamma, he's probably got a good life and it's a positive sign that his wife put a picture of her second husband in the article about her divorce. (The reverse is always a very bad sign of an Alpha Widow.)
But it's remarkable how often these things align perfectly with the theory of Game as it has thus far been developed.
