If your boss is an alpha female, expect her to be real bossy. She loves telling people what to do, and she dislikes it whenever her suggestions are not followed. She can be demanding too. Her subordinates are pressured to meet her standards because she wants everything done with perfection.


15. She Does Not Depend on Her Partner.

Alpha women are independent. Most of them do not mind growing old without a partner or a family. They are not emotionally and financially dependent on men, so they are not bothered by singlehood. Of course, it is not impossible for an alpha girl to feel in love and be in a relationship. However, do not expect her to change for the guy, do things to please him, and beg for him to stay.

16. She Dominates the Relationship.

And whenever she is in a relationship, the alpha woman is usually the boss. She leads the relationship, from deciding where to date, what movie to watch, and what will be their plans for the future. Although she respects her partner, she just cannot control her personality to be in command.

17. She Has the Final Say in Everything.

In connection with no. 16, she is the decision-maker in the relationship. She may ask for her partner’s suggestions and ideas, but she always has the final say. Good thing most alpha women are intelligent, strategic, and reasonable beings. For this reason, their decisions are often correct.

18. She is Territorial.

Just like how alpha animals can be territorial, an alpha woman does not want to share what is hers with others. In short, she is easily jealous. She does not like her partner being close to other women. To avoid conflicts, she wants him to stay away from other ladies. If not, you can expect her to cause trouble once she becomes suspicious of her partner. She likes confrontations, and weaker women would not like being cornered by her.

19. She Can Move on Easily.

And what happens when the relationship does not serve an alpha woman anymore? Do not expect her to hold on for the sake of memories and emotions. She is not afraid to lose someone because her priorities are her peace of mind, growth, and goals. As mentioned above, she does not mind being single since she is independent.

Not Easy to Handle

If you are here because you like an alpha woman, ask yourself first if you can handle this kind of woman before pursuing her. If what you want is a submissive girlfriend, she is probably not the right person for you. You cannot pin her down easily.

Meanwhile, if you are an alpha woman, congratulations on being part of the top of the socio-sexual hierarchy. However, it does not mean that you are invincible already. On the contrary, if you cannot control your negative traits, such as stubbornness, pride, and being bossy, you will always encounter chaos. For this reason, it is important that you learn to improve your social skills too.
