The following are examples of what I feel an alpha male would not look like. Having said that…

Beware of these if you are in a Long-term Relationship!

If you are in a long term relationship right now, take these 5 indicators lightly. They do not apply to you all the time, because when you spend THAT much time with someone, you realise that we all have moments where we slip in to different roles and he might have done something once or twice that indicated he was a beta male but really he isn’t. (Click here to complete the quiz “Am I Dating a Commitment Friendly Man?)

And that is normal, and natural and there’s nothing wrong with that. Just like you show up in your masculine energy sometimes, no matter how beautifully feminine or motherly you are 80% of the time.

If you’re dating…

This post is for you if you are single and dating and want a strong alpha male and want to sift through the men who perhaps won’t be that strength for you when you need him to be. I don’t know about you – but I know when I was dating, it was INCREDIBLY helpful to have signs to go by, before wasting time with someone who isn’t right for you.

What is an Alpha Male?

In today’s day and age, because most of us do not live in tribes anymore, the alpha male might not be as OBVIOUS, so that’s why I believe signs are more important.

Thousands (even millions) of years ago, it was obvious who the alpha male was; he was the guy who lead the tribe, who got the pick of ALL the women, and fathered most of the tribe’s population!

But of course, other men hated that because they didn’t get the opportunity to pass on their genes; one man commandeered all the female reproductive resources; so of course, the society we have today works MUCH better for most of us; where, for some of us, we can be UNEMPLOYED and still pass on our genes.

Hell, we can live off the government, be on drugs, and still Pass on our genes. Not good; but it still happens.

Yet; as a woman, you can feel whether a man is a dominant or submissive man, right?

Here is how I define an Alpha Male

In today’s day and age, signs that a man is an alpha male are signs that he has a strong masculine energy; that he is not afraid to be dominant and to hold his ground.

Just because a man is an alpha male doesn’t mean he can’t have a well developed feminine energy, too. Remember that! It’s simply because he’s more multi-dimensional.

Dominant, BUT in what Way?

Now for some men, they’ll be the ‘dominant asshole’, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing; it depends how he shows up as that asshole. And some women still like this type of man, and it works for them, which is great!

Or, you get the (rare) enlightened man who is spiritual and still very clearly alpha; or has a strong masculine energy. These men are rare; and it takes a well developed feminine energy to create attraction and develop a relationship with this type of man. (Get your “Goddess Report” here)

And sometimes, it’s hard to tell what man is what, so that’s where some indicators come in really handy!

Here are the 5 indicators that a man is not an Alpha Male:

1) When socialising and talking, he often talks in a way that puts other people down.

For me, there really is no faster indication that this man has a very weak masculine energy. Not only because he’s insecure, that’s not even half of the reason! The reason why this is a sure-fire indicator that a man is not an alpha male is because alpha males are far more centred and focused than that! In order to look to put others down indirectly or directly, it just shows his lack of ability to focus and the lack of direction in his life.

Men who have a sense of mission, and who are focused, don’t have the brain space to look for ways to gossip and TALK about how other people are less than, or are losers.

Plus, lengthy discussion and gossip is something women do. Look out for this one. I really can’t stand men who gossip in a way that puts other down; because I can feel their lack of authenticity.

Sure, sometimes we all have to gossip and maybe tell it like it is; but there’s a difference between telling it like it is and having most of what comes out of your mouth be a put down or criticism of other people. Gossip is a form of sharing of feminine energy – not a strong masculine energy.

2) Other women don’t pay attention, and aren’t interested in listening to him when he speaks.

An alpha male more often than not, has the ability to engage people and is not afraid to engage people. Always take a man out with some of your girlfriends. Firstly; if he cares about you; he won’t avoid it.

If he just wants sex, he’ll try to avoid it. If he comes along, observe what he’s like with your friends. It’s not a secret that if a man is standing and talking, and a few women are looking at him, his attractiveness to women automatically goes up incredibly, studies have proved this, and it is in the subconscious female mind.

It’s a kind of ‘pre-selection’; ie: other women are willing to give him the time of day; other women like him, which means A LOT in the female mind when it comes to choosing the best man. It also helps you feel more secure choosing him.

3) He seeks approval. A big one.

Any man with a strong masculine energy will listen to a woman’s opinion, but take it in to consideration.

An alpha male is so strong in his choices; and he is so stable in his own choices that other people’s opinion only count for so much. HIS choices matter the most.

If he’s seeking approval from other women especially, then observe carefully.

The way I learned this was through my ex. This is a very extreme example. It’s almost….too weird to share. But I’m ok with that.

I used to have to reassure him that his jeans looked ok on him. Not once. Not even twice, and no, not three times, but over and over again! Yikes!

See, I know what a bad idea it is to be the man in a relationship when it isn’t natural for you (and it definitely wasn’t natural for me). Thank Goodness I now know better. (read my article about how to get out of your painful relationship now)

4) He never knows where his keys and wallet are.

Ok so I know this seems a bit silly, and it’s not meant to be taken really seriously. However, in some contexts, this can e very telling. You can test this out with a (literal) and fun test, if you are far along enough in the dating process to be able to do this. Have his back turned to where his keys and wallet are and in a playful voice; ask him: “without looking around, where are your keys? And also where is your wallet?”

Are you wondering what this has to do with anything? Well; A LOT! Think about it….masculine energy is very directed. A man can’t be a hunter, or fight at war, or take charge of anything if his mind and eyes are lazy and wandering all over the place; he has to have some sort of direction.

I don’t care how long ago men were hunters; it is in their DNA, males have (over the course of millions and millions of years) trained themselves to properly and efficiently hunt.

And a man who is mostly living in his masculine energy and who has a strong masculine energy, will KNOW where he keeps his keys! Why? Because his keys are the reason he can GO or drive anywhere, in the direction he wants to go.

If he loses things all the time; do you feel good? Do you trust him? Or do you just think he’s cute?

Remember that masculine energy is directional – it knows where it’s going; and if it doesn’t, it finds out – or pretends to know, at least for that moment 🙂 A man with a weaker masculine energy most of the time; won’t mind you telling him where to go, and he’ll relax and enjoy that. An alpha male or a very masculine man will probably ignore you instead if you tried. And thank goodness! Finally! A man you can respect!

5) The complainer.

You already knew that in your gut though, didn’t you? The man who complains about work, about his boss, about his ex, about his mother, and his father. Men are perfectly entitled to complain every now and then. But sometimes some men would rather complain than trust their own ability to do something about the situation – and too much complaining just doesn’t get the job done.

The man who has a bad shoulder injury and goes on and on about it. Oh, and ENJOYS telling the story of how bad it is and how it happened over and over and over and over and over again.

Complaints complaints complaints.

So…..Where or when does he have any time to actually take the problem at hand and deal with it?

Well, he’s not even looking to deal with the problem. He just wants to blurt a bunch of complaints out. Good for him! But maybe not so good for you if you want a passionate relationship with him!

Talking through things and being hurt and upset or even complaining is what you and I do together, as women, because our natural feminine instinct is not to solve any problems. Connection is the lifeblood of the feminine.

We just need to connect, talk, and 2 hours later; wa-la! We feel better, and it’s like that other problem didn’t exist. (what was the original problem again??)

The bounce returns to our step and we are ready to move on to the next thing. If a man is more towards the alpha male on a spectrum of Beta -> Alpha, then he will not complain all the time, but rather, eliminate (move away from), or SOLVE the problem.

Not solving the problem would make many men feel like less of a man, and so they wouldn’t usually gravitate towards complaining as their natural happy place.

I was grateful to finally find a man who didn’t complain, after dating just a few men in my life.

Looking at my husband’s personality, I cannot remember even once where he complained about anything.  And of course, I adore him for it, and I know that if he did happen to complain about something, then it’s definitely something that I need to address, because he’s not droning on all the time.

When I realised he didn’t actually complain – like, ever, it was like a huge light bulb went off in my head (and in my heart); this taught me A LOT about the past men I dated, and why I felt less trust in them, and consequently wanted to always take charge and be the man in the relationship.

By the way – it’s not that a man can never complain, of course they can. It’s whether or not they have a pattern of going to complaining and that pattern strips them of their sense of capability and courage as a man. At the end of the day, an alpha male needs to lead his tribe – and complaining usually won’t get that job done, especially in high stress situations.

Here are 10 Telltale Signs he is A Highly Evolved, Deeply Masculine Alpha Male.

(By the way, I’ve just published my brand new DVD titled “Becoming His One & Only!”… and right now it’s FREE for you to get a copy. Click HERE to find out more details and how you can get your man to fall deeper in love with you and beg you to be his one and only)

And, the best thing about this is that I can trust him to be a man; so I can relax and be a woman. If you’re looking for a passionate relationship where you are taken care of, this is an important one, so look out for it!

Before I found my husband, men used to try to lure me in by telling me how bad their ex girlfriend was and how they don’t have enough sex and how their work is crap…and this is without me even asking; so their complaints were not really in context of an ongoing conversation!

They were random, inauthentic attempts to get my attention. No thanks! Next!

There are a lot of other indicators that a man is not an Alpha Male. Have you experienced any of these Signs with the men you’ve dated? Share it with us! Do you have any comments to add to the mix? Leave a comment below sharing it with us. 🙂

Excellent article. Regarding the not remembering the keys – I have a insightful perspective from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is based on the Five Element Theory. Each organ has a virtue and negative emotion associated with it along with various bodily functions they govern. The kidneys (yin organ) and corresponding bladder (yang organ) hold fear. Ever been so scared you pissed yourself? Weak kidneys. The virtue is wisdom/drive to get shit done. The kidneys govern the health of the bones (teeth are an extension of the bones so if you have an over/underbite – weak kidneys in TCM), head… Read more »

This article is not on point. What if the guy had ADHD. He might be looking for his stuff or might lose the keys quite often. He would still be an alpha male.

I’ll demonstrate how alpha I would be over this ‘shit tester’. When she playfully and gleefully (and condescendingly) tried to put me through one of her stupid tests, I’d see it a mile away and simply not respond. I’d also use said car keys to drive away from her, never to return. Don’t second guess me, I have integrity and don’t speak of things I don’t know about. I know where I’m going, and I’m always working towards it. You’re either beside me and working towards common goals, or you are the shit-testing annoying condescending nag micro-manager that will be… Read more »

While almost everything on this forum is great quality and well worth reading, I am a bit disturbed at this particular article, not because of the distinction but because of the implication that non-alphas are somehow deficient, second-rate or insufficient. To say that this seems “shallow” would be an understatement, to say the least. I am not an alpha male, but I have learned to use use the gifts that I do have to good effect. I have worked hard for many years and have had a successful career, helping many people, have a doctorate, have always been able to… Read more »

Hi Renee, very well written and well reasoned feminine perspective on the subject. The alpha/beta male is indeed rooted deep in our evolutionary DNA and so are females interaction with and between them. The overall impression of your article is that females tend to seek out alpha males and tend to avoid beta males, which, is and has always been apart of the evolutionary mandate of females. I myself admit to being a beta male and have no problem with it at all and I think your article does justice in helping other women recognize and pursue what they desire… Read more »

Women basically like men who are emotionless, direct, dominant, aggressive and act like assholes. Because they are the complete opposite? Emotional, indirect, submissive, soft and nice? Straight people are so simple minded. The opposite sex HAS to be opposite in characteristics too? I guess. I think it’s kinda dumb but if that’s what makes babies and keeps the world going then I guess so.

I think it depends on the woman’s personality. Most women are emotional types. This article doesn’t account for more logical oriented females or “alpha” females, which is more rare and better suited for beta types of men. I scored 50/50 for feminine masculine energy on the test. I can’t be with an alpha male because I would have to give up my masculine side for the relationship to survive. I was also never attracted to that type and thought my girlfriends were being stupid when they were pursuing the bad boy types because of how badly they were treated. I… Read more »

I wish people would realize that the whole Alpha / Beta concept in nature, taken from wolves, is actually total bullsh!t. The study that found that behaviour in wolves later discovered the dominant behaviour of the “Alphas” simply happened because those wolves were… get this.. the PARENTS of the other wolves.

The Alpha male / beta male concept is total pseudoscience, sadly pop psychology hasn’t got the memo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ti86veZBjU

Well I guess I’m beta, maybe I shouldn’t have relationships because I feel like my wife will never admit that she wants alpha even though during arguments she brings how I make less. I do my best, I try to work hard. I’m sick of women wanting alpha males when most women won’t even give men a shot, women these days freak at the prospect of a man telling them what do unless its their boss haha maybe we should pay women to listen, it works for their boss.

Also to men out there reading this, if you have any of these traits you can work to be a better man. Pay attention to details, defend your rights, help others be positive dont put people down. That also means not developing relationships with women who dont respect you. It will only make your path to being a stronger man a real struggle. One last thing fighting does not make you an alpha male it makes you a Beta that cant control a situation.
