3. Alpha males respect their women. What woman wants a man who can’t respect her or nay other woman?
4. He should be firm but gentle with woman.
5. He won’t be listening to classical music. Make him more male by giving him a harder prescense like a biker who can throw real punches, good on the eyes, but has a swearing problem. Make him a bad boy. But don’t make him where he has no redeeming qualtities.
6. The alhpa male has to be the kind of man that is the marryiing kind. Maybe at first he denies it or doesnt relaize it until he almost loses the best thing that has ever happened to him- his girl. Oh, yeah. Alphas don’t like other men taking aninterest in their women even when they cant admit it to themselves that they have fallen in ove with that woman. Men never come to that realization that fast in real life either. It takes the woman to get under his skin or for that woman to get another man in her life before they realize, “No, that’s my woman.. Back off dude!” Now they woman can be stubborn about it because hey, her alpha admitted he didnt care if she picke up with another guy and when she does it hurts him like hell, so it makes it interesting when the woman makes her alpha really work at it. Or you can have a woman who isnt interested in the alpha at all,and have him so interested in her that he doesn’t give up. Have something bad happen or almost could have happened and have the apha there to save her…
