I wouldn't confidently say towards all women but I'd say at least noticeably to some. You can just pick out a group of guys hanging out in a social event and try to determine who seems like the leader of that group, and if there is such a guy who clearly seems to fit that description that other guys follow, he's usually the one that attracts most girls his way.
I've also noticed this trend just personally that "relatively" looking "alpha" can make an impact. Like back when I was younger and into clubbing, if I was with a group of friends where I was leading, and they were following, then far more girls come my way. If instead, I'm hanging out with a group lead by a guy taller and with a more commanding presence than me, all the girls flock to him and I feel almost invisible. The same kind of girls I might have been popular with the previous week barely notice me when I'm standing next to that guy.
And in those cases what I did was I stopped standing next to him. I kind of said cheers to him and the rest of the group and wished him luck and went to the center of the dance floor by myself, and then girls were approaching ago when I was now solo. So there's like a relative image thing as far as I can tell.
[...] and then girls were approaching [again] when I was now solo.
And that's something I noticed is like if you can't appear like the pack leader in a group, then it's usually better to break off from that group and just look like a loner. It usually attracts the fewest if you appear like a follower in a given group.
I'd also propose "alpha" as a contextual term in terms of how it attracts. Some guy could be "alpha" in one context and on the bottom of the totem pole in another. Like let's say you have this huge muscular guy, and he's the leader of his posse outside of work. He's standing tall and center and people are following, and I'd say that's the optimal time for him to attract women his way. But then let's say his job is as a bodyguard for someone else, and in that job he's relegated to following far behind this VIP person (could even be a woman) who now takes front and center leading while he's following. Now he'll tend to attract much fewer women in my experience.
Of course, there are biasing factors in the examples I gave like being on work, off work, being around people who might be more popular with the opposite sex in general, etc. But I see lots of examples like this that, when combined, eliminate those possible alternative explanations. In general, it seems to attract the largest percentage to look like a relative leader in however small or modest of a group, then second best is like a loner, while the follower attracts the smallest percentage.
So try not to appear like a follower if you can help it and want to attract women. But you can conduct some social experiments to try to verify this conjecture of mine.An example is to take just one wingman with you to a social event like a party or night club, but where you are clearly the leader and he's following your lead and take note of how this influences women's perception of you. Then try the other way around with a guy who has a more commanding presence as a wingman while you follow his lead, and compare the difference. If you have similar experiences like mine, you'll notice a whopping difference where you feel like a superstar in the former scenario and an invisible guy in the second.
Yes, but not necessarily in the physical way. It's attractive to me when he's strong willed and protective.
Is he more attractive if its clear he's more alpha among his friends and people? Or does it matter
Could be, but just because you're muscular doesn't necessarily mean you're more attractive than others and just because you have a dominant personality doesn't always make you more attractive, either.
