Alpha female dating an alpha male
You may be pretty much a hybrid, with equal amounts of both.I’m betting that you’ve got some Alpha no matter who you are.Funny, strong, independent, and comfortable in her own skin, the Alpha believes in herself—but has some blind spots.
“I’m a little afraid of direct confrontation,” Lily says. I look like I’m easygoing and amenable and I don’t always show my forceful side, but I do like to get my way.” Alpha? It isn’t always either/or, and Alpha is not better than Beta.After I’d begun thinking about Alpha female/Beta male partnerships, I mentioned to an Alpha friend of mine that her husband was a great Beta guy.Although I meant it as a compliment—her husband is a nurturing family man and a super-creative graphic designer who works on a vintage letterpress machine in his studio—I could tell from her body language that she was a little insulted.Her towering four-inch stilettos march off to the office, the store, the judge’s chambers, and her lacquered-red soles send a “follow me” signal, straight to the bedroom.She’s the MD who manages a clinic like a well-oiled machine, or the self-confident Web editor who envisions herself running the company with her combination of tech skills and business savvy.
In dress and style, the Alpha is the familiar, highly visible prototype—she wouldn’t be caught dead in a 1980s power suit with padded shoulders that imitated male business attire.
