It’s no secret that women love alpha males. Read any old romance book and the hero of the story is nearly always an alpha. The list is almost endless; James Bond, Jack Bauer, John McClane, Martin Riggs, Harrison Ford… these are the types of alphas that make women go weak at the knees. The question is why?
In the wild, it’s survival of the fittest, according to naturalist Charles Darwin. The law of the jungle is basically to kill or be killed. This is how the leader of the pack emerges. Naturally the leader will be battle hardened, mean and lean, and ready to defend his pride against predators. It’s probably nature’s way of ensuring that future offspring are as strong as possible, so they can continue the circle of life.
Define Alpha Male
To put it simply, an alpha male is a dominant or domineering male in both social and professional situations.
What Characteristics Does An Alpha Male Have?
If you believe in yourself, others will too. An alpha male doesn’t fear silence in a conversation because he’s happy in his own skin, and he doesn’t need approval from anyone. He believes in what he stands for and is prepared to speak up for it.
He may have studied extensively or he may be street smart, however you look at it, an alpha male has a sharp mind and keen wit. He’s an expert flirt and he always knows how to get exactly what he wants.
His Body Language Speaks Volumes
An alpha male uses body language and eye contact to his advantage. He often doesn’t need to speak a word. His body is doing all the talking for him.
An alpha strives for perfection in everything he does, and that includes taking good care of his body. He’s the type you’ll see running nine miles at five in the morning, and he’ll barely break out a sweat. Exercise helps calm his overactive mind.
He’s Well Dressed
He knows the importance of looking good, and he’s always dressed to impress. Women go all gooey at the thought of men in suits and ties, and he uses this to his advantage. You will always see him smartly dressed for social occasions and it’s rare that a hair will be out of place upon his head.
