A new book titled The Alpha Woman Meets Her Match says that today's “Leaning In” woman should go for a man who is beta to her alpha.
The author, a “relationship therapist,” wants the “Alpha woman to look past the overly competitive, domineering Alpha male for a man who is not threatened by her strengths but is communicative, responsible, and collaborative. Just as Alpha women aren't demanding bitches, Beta men aren't passive wimps.”
There's an online test you can take to find out just how much alpha and beta you have in your personality—and therefore who would be your perfect match.
Have romance novels been doing it wrong all this time, pairing Alpha females with Alpha males? Are there any examples of Beta females paired with Beta men?
