Open Thread Sunday

As I begin to tiptoe back into the dating world, I’ve begun to read a lot about the dating scene tendency to split guys into alphas, betas and omegas in terms of desirability. In light of this, I’d like to ask my august audience:

Is there such a hierarchy among religious Jews on the dating scene? Is it any different from the secular variety?

    i think another term for omega is loser.
    also, i dont know if his ‘woman shortage’ applies to the religious world, where there seems to be a male shortage.

    OK, but still, in spite of the male advantage, women are still selective and still have their own hierarchy of what they want out of men. So what do you think would separate an “alpha” from a “beta” in the (modern) religious world?

    perhaps the same things — earning power/career.

    note well, learnedness is generally not high on the priority list. this is a pronounced weakness vis a vis the more rw wold.
