Sometimes I feel like I'm married to a psychiatrist since she has the ability to stay so calm and patient and be so sensitive about everything. If that can be considered "alpha", then I certainly love that quality.
[...] to stay so calm and patient and be so [sensible] about everything.
She's also extremely accountable (owns up to her mistakes perhaps even better than I do), and quite a diplomat. We're both somewhat "counselors" in our friend group but I have a more "tough love" kind of approach with lots of humor while she has a softer kind of diplomatic and empathetic approach, although she is not agreeable (she will still disagree and voice her true thoughts, but very gently and with greater patience than me).
That's awesome. You guys sound like a really great couple.
@Jamie05rhs Cheers! She helps keep me in check a lot. :-)

Was just about to say this. There is no such thing as alpha malesSome are born tall, handsome and outgoing, thats it
@Pulimuli The alpha/beta male concept makes for funny/stupid movies, but it is just nonsense. The the scene below, the alpha male loses his female to the beta male (a true Walter Mitty fantasy!)
A true alpha would not have the ego to tell he is alpha because a true alpha does not need to let everyone know that he is the alpha. because he is automatically the alpha
Someone who is usually a leader, has strong opinions and of course confidence
Its just a fancy Word for someone who was blessed with genetics or someone who is very successful
But I don't know if it's genetics, because there are some very beautiful woman who can be described as passive or submissive. But maybe they have to also be large to be alphas (and I mean a larger size, not fat.)
Nah if you are 6'3 and very good looking you will most likely be 'alpha' because of all the positive reinforcement you get from men and women im your life.Women are usually submissive to men. An 'alpha' woman isn't dominant to men but to other women pretty much
Some men and women are more confident, secure, athletic, and sociable, while others are shy, insecure, and fearful, no?It's just semantics.
Yes, but the term alpha doesn't apply.
Not if you're a ethologist. But for colloquialism, do you not think there is some generally accurate structure to the terms?
*shrug* Well that's that then, I guess.
@MlleCake that is because you have never met an alpha
I have met people of various levels of social dominance, but the concept of "alpha males" in human society is pseudoscience.
The term comes from the animal kingdom
@foodOlivia It does. And humans are not alpha, beta, omega like, say, wolves are. We *are* different. But, people don't use the terms to imply that humans are like wolves. They use them for particular types of humans. Which definitely exist, in my opinion.It's easy enough to see, because women swarm alphas and respond very well to alpha behaviors like confidence, leadership, and high social status. Which is obviously somewhat comparable to traditional animal alphas. Only thing is humans shift more, also dependent on location. But there are still "generally an alpha" and "generally an omega" humans, in my view.
@ChurchOfIron I agree
its werewolf fiction thingy
Why dont you like them anymore?
@Mikester100 I do but they don’t like me because I got fat
I think you look amazing, it all depends on your style and confidence ;)
@Mikester100 I’m really self conscious about all my weight I gained
I would definitly consider asking a girl like you out, you could look really sexy the way you are right now ! If you wanna talk more let me know :p
@Mikester100 well I’m looking for a guy that will take me to the gym and work my weight off me
I would definetly like to be in a relationship where both people work on staying fit 😎 I have a normal body but would like to upgrade for sure
