Do you believe masculinity equates to aggression? Are you unsure of the real differences between beta and alpha males?
On today’s girlfriend chat, Deb returns to discuss dating and masculinity. To be masculine, many men believe they must be pushy, dominant, and intimidating. However, those are beta qualities stemming from insecurity rather than a true sign of manliness. In actuality, alpha males are quietly confident and demonstrate kindness to others without the toxic behaviors commonly associated with men today.
Despite societal misconceptions, masculinity can be positive. Learn more about Deb’s experience with a beta male, masculine and feminine energetics, and what an alpha male truly is.
- “People have a misconception on what it means to be an alpha male versus a beta male, and maybe people don’t even know that that is even a thing.” (13:30-13:39| Deb)
- “When a man is an alpha male, he doesn’t need to puff up and show you he’s dominant. He just is.” (17:38-17:49| Chrystal)
- “It’s not alpha to bully someone or try to push someone to do something they don’t want to do.” (21:18-21:24| Chrystal)
- “I think people genuinely are confused and think to be alpha means being forward and confrontational. People have that misconception.” (21:41-21:56| Deb)
- “Why do men feel the need to posture, peacock, or puff their chest out? Is it a societal thing? Is it a history thing?” (37:46-38:00| Deb)
