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.
