Not a magical soul thread SURPRISE.

Anyhow i keep hearing these terms brought up in CR forums lately and honestly i want to say something.

As someone who fits in neither category i think they are both stupid and generilizations.

The traits of an Alpha male are generally traits of a prick and a loser in my honest opinion a "bad" boy who attracts women who are pathetic to say none the least.

Most of the "Alpha" people i have met attract pathetic women and the girls who go after them for there money and looks are just gold diggers and well pathetic people in general.

Now the whole "BETA" male thing is oh he follows orders and is shy he is a follower instead of a leader.
This is no a bad thing in many cases followers are just as good as the leaders and in some cases better in most cases you will find leaders are stuck up and where they are good in leadership skills they lack in the skills the followers have.

Now as someone who Isn't a leader or a follower i generally find both to be well... Pathetic Generalizations and something cringy to even use.

an "alpha" is no better then a "beta" it's all subjective and to say otherwise is foolish i have lived long enough to have seen alot of "Alpha and Beta" Males and i can tell you that the "Beta" males i hear tons of girls and guys shitting on tend to have better relationships and they aren't based on looks or money and function on love.

Of course this is not always the case but its very apparent.


The whole girls go after someone who can provide and protect them and is an alpha male is just delusional and far from the truth there are alot of women who go for people and provide for them and protect them.

Not all women want the "Alpha male" and alot of women despise that kind of person to assume all women want to "Upsize" or go for a better man is nothing but pure delusion since not all women are the same and it is not human nature to do so.

Seriously this whole "Alpha,Beta" bullshit needs to stop i'm sick of hearing about it (Hypocrite since i'm talking about it)
does anyone else agree?

I think those who go round spouting the "Girls like alpha males and will leave people for one" is bullshit and plain delusion.

Only a slut leaves someone for someone who looks better and has more money and good riddance.

I wouldn't mind being Beta, but I'm pretty sure I'm an Epsilon male at this point.

If it were Magical Soul the title would be "Mangina and Magina males" and the body would be "red pill" lol.

I am neither an Alpha or Beta male though in definition.

You do realize that the whole Alpha/Beta shit stems from the Redpill sub community on Reddit. You know the one thats incredibly misogynistic and all about manipulating women into having sex with you. Honestly its some pretty fucked up shit. The worldview of these people is absolutely disgusting and says nothing good about either genders.

Honestly surprised magical didn't make this one.

Alpha and Beta are an oversimplification though. Any dumbass with Paint can make an image about it.

People take the lead on some things and follow on others. Everyone is a mix of 'alpha' and 'beta' with their common connotations. Just like rational and irrational or emotional and unemotional. You can gain the label from people when you demonstrate too much of it's characteristic, but it's not a working 0 or 100% definition.

Some take the lead and compete more often than others, but it does not mean they do on all things or vice versa.

XD XD tbh I clicked it because I thought it was a magisoka thread and my LoL friend was interested in seeing her stuff after I told them about her.

But, to answer ur q. We're humans not wolves or deer. Most animals pick mates solely based on strength and survivability, love isn't involved at all -- two or more males fight each other and the winner has sex with the female. And that's that.

I think young AND/OR immature/unwise people pick their partners based on arbitrary superficial qualities like wealth, "leader" qualities, strong physical stats.

But when you grow up and get your life straightened out, and become more wise and mature, you realize you'd rather be with someone who you have a connection with, who you get along with, who you have fun with, who you have a special bond with because you both vibe so well. In the end, you realize that such priceless happiness with them is what really matters. Maybe they've got a $20k salary and aren't the best public speakers, but you'll realize that doesn't matter as long as you're happy when you're with them. When you realize that you'd trade a big house to be with that person, then you know....

...But then again, most people don't reach that point.

My definitions of "alpha" and "beta" differ. Not that it matters, though. Pack dynamics don't apply well to our species, so the insistence of trying to make it work is about as faulty as seriously applying goldfish social dynamics to meerkats. Somewhat off-topic; I will say that completely overlooking income is foolhardy, considering that providing for potential children is pretty damned important.

There are some women who want an "alpha male" companion, but eventually they will get tired of being the follower and want to be the chief themselves. The reasons opposites attract is one partner is the leader and the other is the follower. In many cases followers eventually want to be the leader, but you can't have two leaders and we all know leaders don't like to be followers. So, being an alpha or beta male doesn't matter, it basically means that what you are you should get a companion who is the opposite and be ready to switch roles. The same can be said for friends. Followers follow a leader and they do everything the leader wants even if it means not being friends with another follower. You see followers wanting to be the leader after gaining more confidence, but as in relationships you cannot have more than one leader or there will be conflict.

Leader & Follower = Good Relationship
Follower & Leader = Good Relationship
Follower & Follower = Won't work as no one will take charge and both partners will want the other to lead more, be more "manly" in a sense.
Leader & Leader = Won't work as they both will want to go in different directions, even if you both have similar goals now, there will be a point where that doesn't happen and there will be problems.

With this logic, most relationships would fail. Wouldn't the ideal relationship be one where both partners have equal say in things?
