Most Helpful Guy
I think it's about believing in yourself. If you have labeled yourself as a "beta", you've already lost. I don't know for sure, but I think it's about being positive, being interesting, and really knowing who you are, what you like, what you're into. Being passionate about things. Having the basics together like a job and being at least somewhat in shape.
It's also about NOT complaining too much, and NOT oversharing your problems. Remember girls are girls, not your therapist. You don't have to reveal all of your insecurities and fears to them, in fact it's best that you don't because that's when they start to think of you as "beta"/"just a friend" and no one needs that shit. Don't play up the negatives and downplay the positives about you. You don't have to be rich and famous by any means - obviously, it's not just rich and famous guys that get girlfriends. But it's a good idea to get her to see you as strong and secure. You want her to think of you as more positive than negative. You want her to think of interacting with you as fun and interesting and pleasant.
Long story short - don't let anyone tell you you are "beta", if someone tells you you are "beta", tell them to go to hell. And don't let yourself tell you you are "beta". Be your own friend. It's about doing your best.0
