Welcome to Day 1 of the Spanking Blog Challenge.
So what is an Alpha Male? Is he a big, brawny man that makes other men back away from him? No, I don’t think so. There are alpha males that aren’t big and brawny.
Is he the kind of guy who pushes his way through a crowd of people to get where he’s going? No, that’s not it either. That would just be rude. An alpha male has self-confidence and he doesn’t have to push his way through. He can simply walk through a crowd saying, “Pardon me,” or “Excuse me,” and the people will let him pass.
So what qualities are these that make both men and women recognize the alpha male when they meet him? Self-confidence is probably the main one but should not be confused with cocky. The alpha knows what he wants and he usually gets it. But he gets what he wants without being a bully, without lying and cheating, without stealing and hurting other people. There’s an aura about the alpha male that make others recognize that he is a leader, this is someone who can solve the problem, this is someone who will step in and take charge of the situation and make sure it is handled efficiently.
The alpha male is strong. Not necessarily physically strong (though many are) but mentally strong. They’re ambitious and want to win all challenges. There’s a certain charisma about them that draws women to them. And not just women, but other men. People like a leader and let’s face it, most people are followers, not leaders.
He’s not weak, arrogant, or conceited. He may be vain, he may be proud, he may be tolerant. But tolerant doesn’t mean he’ll take your crap. He’ll listen to your ideas and if they’re good ones, he may choose to use them. But if he doesn’t see the value in your ideas or plans, he’ll come right out and say so.
Of course, all alphas don’t display all of the same characteristics. What about your man? Which of these traits does he have?
