Girls, if a guy described himself as a "beta male" in his profile or personal ad, what would you think?

Like if it's thrown in with a bunch of other qualities, for example: "I'm an art-loving, philosophy major, gaming enthusiast, beta male, who loves conversation and the outdoors."

Does the term "beta male" have a negative connotation for you? Is it bad for a person to say that even if it's true, the same way that it's bad to announce you have low self-esteem or body odour? And what if he was seeking only platonic friendship, would it be advisable to use the term then? Thanks for your help.

  • What a pathetic personal ad lmao. No dude using the term beta/alpha is a pretty big turn off to most girls. While it's just a word used to describe certain personality traits people like to freak out and bring up wolves. It's much easier to use the world alpha or beta but people are weird.

  • Three words: He's an idiot. A male is a male. Have no impact for me. In platonic relationships or anything, the term is not necessary. Be yourself without the added terms. It will give people the wrong idea.

  • I had to look up the term to make sure I was thinking of the right definition. The first thing that comes to mind about a beta male is that he's essentially harmless. Probably a nice guy to be friends with but lacking half the traits I like in men whom I'd think of romantically. I'd give him a shot but I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up in the friend zone.

  • Not really. Just make sure not to date abbey alpha type female. She would probably take advantage of you.

  • As soon as I see beta or alpha, I'd close the screen. I don't play with little boys. There's no such thing as beta or alpha. That only exists in the animal kingdom not humans.

    • The alpha male will typically sleep with you quite a few times, and then dump you for someone else within 3 to 6 months.

      I am the "Omega", and I'm twice your age, and I've seen it all.

      Alphas are ready for a fall.

  • I'd think he's an idiot. I don't see why anyone would want to describe themselves with alpha or beta descriptions.
