You’ve heard of alpha males, but what about alpha females?! With feminism on the rise, the world is seeing more and more women achieving their goals and becoming more empowered (good for them!!). Alpha women take charge and usually intimidate people. They are confident, ambitious and are not afraid to speak their mind. This kind of power can of a turn off for some people. These people are usually either to competitive or too submissive to be a proper match for the alpha woman! Here is what an alpha woman should look for to maintain a dynamic and healthy relationship.
1. THEY NEED SOMEONE WHO CAN KEEP UP
Alpha women are busy people, with many things that need to be done. No one is going to do those things for them, so they have to move at a fast pace. Alpha women are efficient when it comes to time, and their planners are booked forever. They need someone who can keep up with them and their high pressure and intense environment.
2. THEY NEED SOMEONE WITH TACT
The most important trait that an alpha woman looks for in her partner is “tact.” Someone who knows when to have a great talk and when to let things go. They need someone who can handle the multitude of moods and emotions without instigating an argument. They want someone who’s thoughtful and sensitive and capable of picking up on how the alpha woman is feeling and to approach difficult issues in privacy.
3. HE WILL BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED HIM
He might not be the life of the party, but he will always be there when you need to be carried home. An alpha woman is a social animal and thus needs to interact with her peers. They look for a man who allows them to mingle and isn’t intimidated by her personality, but at the same time assumes the role of a protector. He’ll get you another drink but will take it away when you’ve had too much.
4. THEY NEED TO BE CHALLENGED
Alpha women need partners who can hold their own against her. They want someone who can compete with them and is secure about their abilities to be a good winner and never a sore loser.
5. THEY NEED TO BE CALLED OUT WHEN NECESSARY
Alpha women need people who are reliable and secure enough to know when to call “bullshit.” They need someone to remind them that they’re not perfect and that they can indeed make mistakes. However, this needs to be done with tact and without being a douche about it. People need their ego’s to be checked once in a while, and alpha women are no different. Their power and personality make it important to have someone who can bring them down to planet earth when they float up to far.
6. THEY NEED TRUST
Alpha women need to know that they can trust you with whatever they tell you. What happens in the relationship should remain in the relationship? They need to be vulnerable and let their guard down now and then, after all, they are humans. They want someone who they can trust and someone who will NEVER stab them in the back.
7. THEY NEED THEIR INDEPENDENCE
Alpha women need to enjoy their passions, friends and have to do what has to be done. Clingy people need not apply. Alpha women are looking for someone who’s like them and have their life outside of the relationship.
8. HE’S YOUR NUMBER 1 FAN
He should treat you the way Jay Z manages Beyonce. Like a queen. An alpha woman loves it when her man respects everything that she stands for and wants to be. Therefore, alpha women look for men who can support them and makes them feel lucky to have them.
9. THEY NEED A TEACHER WITHOUT THE LECTURES
We can’t help but stress on the point that alpha women are humans as well. They, just like regular people, are always learning. An alpha woman needs someone who can teach her new skills, without giving an entire lecture. He is aware of the knowledge and loves to give you new information on his passions. He shows you things without judging you.
10. THEY NEED AN EQUAL PARTNER
Alpha women are looking for their equal. Someone who has the capability to do their part in the relationship. They need someone who can form their opinions and who has their finances in order. Egotistical men can look elsewhere. An alpha woman wants someone to walk with them and not behind them. They don’t have to have the same hobbies or friends, but they have to be self-sufficient and survive on their own.
11. THEY NEED RESPECT
Alpha women need their partner to respect their decisions, and not to second guess them consistently. Challenging an alpha woman is okay before the decision is made, but never afterward. They need their space and boundaries respected as well. It includes being lied to for whatever reason. They need someone who doesn’t depreciate their values but doesn’t put them on a pedestal either.
12. THEY NEED SOMEONE WHO IS INFORMED
Alpha women are always changing their environment. They have to be constantly up to date, to be all the things they want to be. As such, a partner of an alpha woman has to be on top of their knowledge game. They have to be able to have an intelligent conversation and express ideas that are at the same level as the alpha woman in question. It is true especially in the social media age, where it is essential for an alpha woman’s partner to have a functioning bullshit detector.
13. THEY NEED TO LAUGH
The alpha woman is people too. They like to laugh as well. An alpha woman needs someone who can make them laugh when the times are rough. They want someone who can get them smile and tease them (and be teased) without hurting feelings.
