It’s all about the beta male these days.
Hollywood blockbusters, bestseller novels, and hit TV series all have one thing in common: The leading man must be tall, strong, muscular, confident, outspoken, and have a great sense of humor.
When you can be the next Tony Stark and Thor, who wants to be the nice guy forgotten?
These are the alpha males. As in any hierarchy, there is a second dog behind the top dog. In this instance, it’s the beta males.
Beta males are those guys that are known for being friends. They are often referred to as being quirky, lovable and reliable. However, they are never the ones who steal the spotlight away from the alpha male.
If you are looking for a man to be your boyfriend, a beta male could be the right guy for you.
These are the traits of a beta man and why it is so great to date them.
