Just wondering, can anxiety bring down an inherently alpha male after experiencing painful dating experiences? I don't mean it to be permanent, only temporary until he heals up and maybe become stronger than before. I personally don't care about the alpha/beta thing about myself though, I'm just me and always learning to improve through mistakes, thats all.

Not sure what you mean by the Alpha and Beta thing. I find it weird that people act like life is such a competition with each other. I'm not going to say one guy is inherently better than another, they're just different...
In any case, after painful dating experiences it does take time to heal. I'm recovering from a manipulative and abusive relationship myself, and it's gonna take a long time before I'm willing to get back out there. But if you're feeling anxiety, that's likely a sign that you're not ready to date yet. Wait until you're fully recovered, until your heart is mended. It wouldn't be fair to someone else to date them with only the goal of becoming an "alpha" male in mind. I don't know what painful dating experience you're talking about, but use this time to focus on yourself. You say you like to improve through mistakes, so think back to this dating experience. Did you make any mistakes that you can avoid next time?
Yes, you're not going to be as good of a date right now, but that's because you've been through some painful experience. Just focus on yourself and be the best person you can be. Don't try to measure up to other guys, because you're perfect the way you are.0
