Your fault lies in not differentiating from actual Alpha members and the perceived traits of an Alpha member.
Any numpty can mimic
Alpha traits. Seriously, why do you think BMW sell so many cars ? ["Hey, Alphaboy you're driving the Ultimate
Physique and ability to fight does not make you Alpha. To be truely an Alpha male you require social skills/graces and a bit of the grey stuff. Protein powder can't help you there.
In fact, you can quite easily be an Alpha male without dangling from a rope and flexing muscles.
A normal bloke/lady plucking that woman from the water is equally as brave and selfless in their actions without worrying about Alpha posturing.
Most Alpha male wannabes
are more interested in each others "Alphaness" then any of the girls will be.
Maybe Helen, as a member of the fairer sex, could comment ?
