So, to bring this back to you, Sara, my thoughts on alpha males is that while they may remain the most attractive candidates out there, as a rule, they tend to be bad long-term relationship bets. They may try to spend money on you but it doesn’t compensate for their lack of attention, affection and understanding. But you hold on because he’s such an intoxicating catch.
I would guess that most women who’ve gone for them would concur with this observation. Make no mistake, he RELIES on his charms to allow you put up with all his bullshit.
If anything, I have a fierce ethical streak (which surfaces here from time to time) which is stronger than my thirst for money or new women.
Based on your advice and that of others I’ve read, it seems that no woman should attempt to deal with these guys.

As for what type of woman you have to be to get this guy, in general, I’d say someone who is supportive of him. Someone who doesn’t nag him all the time about his job.
Someone who can listen to him and provide a fun change of pace when he finally clears space to be 100% present.
