12 Qualities Every Alpha Woman Needs In A Man

The alpha woman is confident, driven, outgoing, ambitious focused – and she definitely doesn’t have time for whiny man games. When you’re a total boss, it can seem like the dating landscape is a little more bleak than it is for other types of women. Here are qualities all alpha women look for in the men they choose, because not just any guy can keep up with you.

1. He has his own full life.

The last thing an alpha woman needs is a needy guy waiting around to be invited into her cool life because he doesn’t have one of his own. Instead, you need someone who’s whole on his own so that when you come together, it’s double the fun, not like you’re playing hostess.

2. He’s not irrationally jealous.

An alpha woman is as social in her work setting as she is in her personal life, so she has to date a confident guy who isn’t going to be suspicious and jealous whenever she’s out of his sight.

4. He won’t put up with your BS.

Alpha women aren’t afraid to assert themselves, but on the occasions comes off as sassy behavior, he knows exactly how to shut it down without causing a fight.

5. He challenges you in the best possible ways.

You’re used to running the show in so many aspects of your life, and the perfect way to find balance within that is to find a guy who can still encourage you to try new things and be a better person without slowing you down.

6. He’s ambitious as hell.

You need a guy who is not only busy in his own, life but is inspired and driven to conquer his goals… and then make new ones and conquer those ones, as well.

7. He’s mature enough to self-reflect.

You need a man who’s mature enough to admit when he’s done something wrong, not the type that tries to spin your words or make you feel guilty for silly stuff. He’s in touch with his emotions and basically knows how to act like the grown man he is.

8. He can handle your moods.

The alpha woman is not generally shy about expressing herself, and occasionally this can get a little intense. He’s grounded enough that he doesn’t take it personally and can actually right your moods without telling you what to do.

9. He keeps you laughing even on your worst days.

You get bored too quickly to deal with a guy who isn’t making you laugh and adding fun times to your life. You need some of that pretty much every day to lighten the mood of your workload. While it’s no one else’s responsibility to entertain you, any guy you date will manage to do this effortlessly.

10. He’s an unapologetic realist.

Not only can he call you out when you’re out of line, but he has enough real-world experience to know when one route is a terrible idea and how to take a different one. That’s not to say that he can’t think outside the box, but he also won’t encourage things he believes are foolish just to spare your feelings.

11. He’s your number one fan.

You don’t require the help of a man to get anything done in your life, but he respects that about you and wants to be your support system anyway. He thinks you can do anything, and feels lucky to be around and watch it happen.

12. He’s always ready to learn.

You want a guy that’s educated and worldly, but also smart enough to know that he doesn’t already know everything, but that he’d really like to. He’s open to every opportunity to learn something new and soaks up the world around him like a giant sponge.

13. He’s stable in every sense of the word.

No alpha woman has time to chase around unstable, overly emotional dude with poor relationship skills. He should only add to your life and add to it in truly wonderful ways.
