4 Key “Good Man” Traits Alpha Males Have
Everywhere you look, you’ll find articles on why nice guys can never get the girl, why bad boys seem to have their pick of them, and how a nice guy can be more like the proverbial bad boy. As those who know me can attest, I strive to give you nothing but my patented “CHT,” or cold, hard truth, whether you like it or not, as that’s the best way I can help you.
The cold, hard truth on this specific topic is that no nice guy will ever turn into an all-out bad boy. Sure, he can go to the school of pickup artistry, learn some goofy lines and focus on psychological mumbo-jumbo such as push-pull theory, break apart “comfort game” vs. “escalation game,” but at the end of the day, congruency never lies, and things always end up where they belong. You don’t know how many clients I’ve seen on either side of the “hot chick” vs. “rich guy” spectrum, where inevitably the relationship has failed because it’s not real. The money and the looks are never enough, because you can’t fake being someone else forever.
That being said, I’ve always been all about self-improvement and being the best one can be (this won’t involve peacocking outfits, however). Keeping that in mind, let’s focus on The Masculine Way, and think about 4 traits Alpha Males invariably possess, that every man should strive to do so as well:
Don’t fall into the traps of being a nice guy, thinking that you will one day inherit the world with your meekness (you won’t). Don’t try to “become” a bad boy, instead, either. Strive to be a good man, and go after what you deserve as a true alpha male.
