Alpha female dating alpha male
After I’d begun thinking about Alpha female/Beta male partnerships, I mentioned to an Alpha friend of mine that her husband was a great Beta guy.
Although I meant it as a compliment—her husband is a nurturing family man and a super-creative graphic designer who works on a vintage letterpress machine in his studio—I could tell from her body language that she was a little insulted.
It made me realize just how loaded these terms are.
The old hierarchy of Alpha and Beta, in which the highest-ranking Alpha males run the show, isn’t operative any more.
Beta males are—or can be—the best lovers because they want to get off too.
I believe that Alpha women can learn to envision themselves as the Alpha in a relationship with a Beta man, who just might make the best fit.A new ad campaign for shaving cream suggests men “man up,” a playful poke both at traditional notions of manhood and at today’s “softer” guy.Today’s Beta guy is transformed and more complicated than the sensitive guy from the 80s and 90s. Many Alpha women have a sexual Achilles heel: openly sexual as they are, they still expect the man to take the lead in bed, which gets in the way of their falling for the tender lover, the Beta male.You may be pretty much a hybrid, with equal amounts of both.I’m betting that you’ve got some Alpha no matter who you are.
