.....had these type of traits?

1]Task focused. Single minded.
2]Determined, bold, and a competitive high achiever.
3]Winning is part of her identity.
4]Higher sexual libido.
5]Emotionally self sufficient.
6]More aggressive. Actively pursues power and status.
A risk taker.
7]Enjoys recognition but doesn’t need approval from peers.
8]Gets straight to the point without social chat.
9]Closer relationship to father than mother.
10]Fiercely independent – not looking for a man to take care of her, she takes care of herself.
11]She leads and expects everyone to follow.
12]She doesn’t care what people think of her.
13]Gives her opinions – doesn’t wait to be asked.
14]Intelligent, well informed, resourceful.
15]Not afraid of the unknown,fights for what is hers.
16]Honor, integrity, and loyalty.
17]Fiercely protective of herself, her family and everyone she loves.
18]Nature created her to lead her family and community.
19]She is selective about who she invites into her private life.
20]She is well prepared for her own survival and for those she loves.
21]She won’t allow others take advantage of her or those she loves
22]The leader in the workplace and in her community.
23]She’s easy-going and doesn’t throw tantrums, whine, b!tch or nag
24]She can hold her own in the boardroom, bedroom, or on the street. She commands respect.
25]Solitude nourishes her.

Some say she is the " Alpha Female" the female counterpart to the Alpha male.
Until recently, the concept of alpha female barely existed. Strange, considering that this remarkable woman is as old as the alpha male himself. But that is because in the past girls who exhibited those tendencies were often coerced into acting " normal & ladylike " in my opinion.

So my question to the ladies is,
Does she exist?
Do you admire women with these type of traits?
Which of these traits do you recognize in yourself?

And to the men.
Do you know any women with these traits?
Are you attracted to them?
If so why , and if no why?

I know lots of women like this....but most do not know how to be a true woman and compliment these traits. It is wonderful to be alpha, but we should always be willing to let a man be a hero in a relationship.

I used to be like this and it didn't bode well for my marriage. Oh sure some traits are awesome like higher drive, honor, integrity but others not so much. Winning, competitive, emotionally independent, doesn't need a man, aggressive, single minded,, etc. are turnoffs in my opinion.

Those traits stopped me from claiming my feminine side. I can be strong yet intensely vulnerable. I can be need my husband and yet still be able to take care of myself if need be. You get the idea.

It's a balancing act and it's not always easy but the payoffs are worth it.

Do I admire them? Meh. Tbh, the ones I have met in person who have had all of those traits have come off as b!tchy and aloof.... more b!tchy, though. IMO, that isn't an admirable trait at all.
Do I have any of these traits? Yes. 7, 9, 14 (depending on subject), 15, 16, 17, 18, and 21.

I'm married to a woman who is a lot of things on that list but most of it is career oriented, and one of our biggest problems is that her career has taken off considerably the past 3-4 years and is causing major problems in our marriage. Many times I wish that I could just have that simple girl back making a decent salary who's not overwhelmed by her job, but apparently she has moved out and I am left with someone who is obssessed with money and her job leaves no time for fun.

I deleted the ones that don't apply to me. I consider myself an alpha female. Have been since I was quite small actually. Im not the submissive type at all. I've never needed a man to survive and I don't think a man should run any relationship. I believe in equality!

I think more men are interested in alpha females than they would like to admit. Let's just say I've NEVER been short of potential suitors.

Primitive, and I mean that in the best sense.
Like a woman in her natural state, unrefined by the molding of society over the years.
I'd also say she was very well equipped for survival in the world.
Madeline Albright type.
Nothing wrong with that.

I can't speak for other men but most of the alpha traits would hardly make a difference in how attractive a woman is to a man. We're simple creatures and when we see females we see t!ts ass face. The other things don't even figure in our( my) limited and fuzzy brain.

In a long term relationship, a woman who values herself and is funny, passionate, affectionate, honest and kindhearted, now those are traits that would make a man want to have a relationship with the woman.

The rest of the traits wouldn't make a difference. It doesn't matter if the woman is the CEO of a company or if she's a homemaker.
