3. They Don’t Feel Threatened.
Beta boys are secure in themselves. They don’t feel threatened and have no need for jealousy.
You don’t have to ask permission to spend time alone with your closest friends. Male or female.
“A good man will want you to shine. He wants you to be your amazing self. A good man loves to show off his happy, intelligent, amazing, powerful woman.” – Anastasia Netri
Bad boys are the opposite. They isolate you. They want to control you. If another man even looks at you, you’re already having an affair.
Forget about ever mentioning male friends or colleagues. They even get jealous of your girlfriends! Girls’ nights out will not be worth it, for the interrogation you’ll get the next day.
4. Quiet Confidence Is So Much Sexier Than Arrogance Hiding Insecurity.
Don’t be fooled into thinking Beta men are boring. Yes, at first they might seem like the quiet puppy in the corner at the pound. Not the lively one jumping up and down, licking your face, yapping ‘pick me, pick me!’
If I ever get a dog now, I know which one I’d go for. The one in the corner, hands down. Not the troublemaker.
If you can pardon the expression, Beta men are ‘grow-ers, not show-ers’.
My husband’s confidence might be of the quieter kind. But it’s underpinned by a strength I’d never seen in a man before.
“The stronger a man is, the more gentle he can afford to be.” -Elbert Hubbard
Beta males don’t need to blast it out with a megaphone, as they’re sure of themselves. But when you need them, you’ll see what I mean. They’ll be there.
They’re emotionally available, so they don’t run at the first sign you need to lean on them.
They can be strong for you when you need them to be. They will lift you up and support you. Exactly when you need it the most, the time a bad boy would run a mile.
This is a man far sexier, trust me, than the one who always abandons you.
5. They’re Nice To You, They Respect You.
They’ll tell you you’re beautiful, even when you have a shower cap on. They don’t need to fear you having a strong sense of self-worth and leaving them.
They celebrate your successes, without feeling threatened.
“A good boyfriend loves his girl with all heart. He isn’t afraid to point to his girl in front of his friends and say: That’s my baby.”
They’re proud of your achievements and encourage you to do what you love most.
If another person compliments you, they’ll agree! Aren’t they the lucky ones to have you?
