My brother and I don't speak, we've never been close and he knows I don't care for the whole alpha male "you can't date this person because I say so" bullshit. yet when it comes to his friends or guys he knows he literally threatens them to stay away from me. What is that all about? I don't understand it.

brothers are protective because they are familiar and seen enough of the common lad attitude towards young women. I think brothers have every right to be protective to a degree. if anything it's better to ensure that yourself won't suffer like most girls who don't have that protection. it's a big spectrum though so don't take what I say litetally0

I think it's simple. He loves you and cares for you but yet at the same time he wants to act macho as he is growing up. Guys for the most part want to stray away from femininity. Maybe he knows the guys around him or his friends are a bit dangerous or risky and he doesn't want you to get in trouble with them?1
