Who's an Alpha-female?

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Hello friends.

Where have I been? Good question. Eating, I guess. My weight is up, My good habits and exercise are down. Funy how some old habits can quietly and easily sneak back into one's life.

So today, I wore my 'special occasion' glasses. I ordered a different sub at Subway for lunch, and I only got the 6", instead of the 12". And tonight, I think I'll really MIX IT UP and sleep on the other side of the bed. That's right. Complete mayhem.

Seriously, though. I was doing better when I was trying to eat vegetarian. Once I allowed chicken strips back in my life, well... It's been downhill from there.

OK, anyway.

Tonight, I'm meeting a friend for dinner that I haven't seen in years and years. And years. She described herself as 'Alpha'. When a person describes themSELVES as Alpha, it's probably true. Personally, Alpha-types tend to amuse me more than anything else. I am definitely not an Alpha-male. I'm more of that lazy lion sitting under the tree, all chilled out and laid back, watching the other lions fight each other.

To me, Alphas seem like they are in control, but in reality, they require a lot of stroking and extra work. To keep them interested, you have to do the opposite of whatever they're expecting. And they expect a lot. It's a big mind game. I've dated a couple of Alpha girls before. They seem attracted to talents I have, as if they would like to market me. I always feel like, instead of a sex object, I am a financial object. It tends to fizzle quickly.

But maybe I'm completely wrong.

Who out there is an Alpha-female? I'm interested in your take on things.

Peace, friends.

    Ha ha! I think I'm a Beta female. I seem to meet up with Alphas (the domestic version, usually a stay-at-home mom type, in complete control of her household and everyone around her at all times) at PTA meetings. Great for keeping everyone organized and making sure things get done, I'll say that for them. :)

    Good to hear from you. I was starting to worry. :-) Hope your evening with the alpha went ok. I think I have a tendency to be a bit more alpha than not. I think it's because I've been on my own for so long, I just like things the way I like them and I like to be in control. I hope that doesn't make me scary. Now you've got me worried for my next date (Friday - eek). JK, it'll be ok either way.

    i love your blog, you have a good sense of humor. i think it depends on how your new friend got her alpha status. i am alpha yeah sometimes high maintenance but so worth it.i grew up with an alcoholic father who just upped and left and got himself a whole new better family. i need to feel like i am in control. i know my life depends on me. as much as i love my husband he could leave at any a couple we have a lot of discussion on how i am feeling and why i am a nut case,not normal,i can let my husband have the control or think he does most of the time or so i think. anyway we've been married twenty years,so maybe it's him you need to speak too. i say go to dinner with an open mind ,maybe her idea of alpha isn't as alpha as you think.and all step away form the chicken strips.

    As someone who's working really, really hard to transition from a Type-A personality (that's A for Alpha, right?), I had a laugh at your blog. Thanks!

    PS: Regarding the stall-out on the weight loss, it happens to the best of us. Just keep doing your best on any given day.
