1) You Are A Superhero
You are a strong, independent woman. You can do everything for yourself, and wear a
killer pair of jeans while you are at it.
As a strong woman we don’t need a man to pick up the pieces of our lives: we’ve got
2) You Know What You Want in Life
Nothing is more intimidating to another human being than being in the presence of a
woman who knows what we want in life and isn’t afraid to go after it. Having the guts
to take risks to find success is very intimidating to people, especially to people who are
used to being the one that are the providers. They generally do not like being the ones
that have to be provided for.
3) You Cherish Honesty and Vulnerability
As an alpha female, you know that it takes a real balance of being honest and letting
yourself be vulnerable to the world to find success.
You have to be frank with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses, and you have
to be willing to confront those weaknesses. We expect our men to be able to face their
weakness and find a way to confront them, but at the same time be strong.
4) You are Comfortable with Intimacy
As a strong woman, we aren’t intimidated by being intimate, both physically and
mentally. As a confident woman, we are sexy in and out of the bedroom, and
sometimes we are intimidate men due to this confidence, but a strong man will be
attracted to it.
5) You Can Read People Well
We are strong because we know who we are inside and out and that’s a part of what
makes us strong. This kind of connection, we can spot when someone is bullshitting
us. When something doesn’t feel right or someone doesn’t feel right, its because they
don’t align with what we want and what we expect in life. It doesn’t take long to figure
out when someone is lying to us. We can spot that a mile away.
6) You Respect Others and Demand Respect Yourself
As a resilient woman, we not only respect ourselves but we demand respect from other
people. They don’t do this by walking around with a chip on our shoulder though; in
fact, just the opposite: we are living our live the way we want, and some can’t handle
People need to show you respect at all turns because you’ll show them the same kind
7) You are Intense
Sometimes you are hot, and sometimes you are cold. You love hard, live hard, play
hard, work hard. Everything you do is intense.
You are getting the most out of your life.
8) You Know Your Worth
You don’t need anyone to tell you what you are worth, you need someone who knows
what you are worth.
9) You Give Things Your All
Whether you are washing dishes or chairing a board meeting at your company,
everything gets 100% of your attention.
That’s how you’ve made it this far and found so much success in your life. As strong
women, we don’t back down from a challenge and are ready to take everything on with
100% of our being.
10) You Encourage Others to Be Their Best Selves
I know as a strong woman, we can get the job done. We know that we aren’t perfect,
and we are working on improving ourselves and our own lives every day. If you
someone is lucky enough to be in a relationship with us, you will become your best
self, because we work on being our best selves daily. We expect that from our other
half, and they will thank us for that in the end.
11) You Like to Be in Charge
It used to be that men would run the show, but that’s not happening as much any more
and some can not wrap their head around that fact. They are stuck in a society that
men did everything outside of the house while women stayed home and took care of
everything inside of the house. We are now not only raising children, and taking care of
the house, but we also do it alone. We run successful companies, and we still find time
to make sure that we are taking care of ourselves as well. Some can not handle this
12) You Don’t “Need” a Man in Your Life
Just as it says you don’t need a man. You “want” to have one. There’s a big difference.
Don’t have one because you think you need one, have one because you want to have a
Yes men may not like this. Make this clear from the get go in a relationship. Some men
do like the idea of being needed. Why because it makes them feel as they are powerful
and some will use that against you.
Men will not admit that this need to be needed by a woman is them showing their own
need, but a strong man will also know that the woman is not needed but he wants her
to be with him. They won’t feel intimidated when a woman feels this way as well.
13) You Have a Strong Personality
We as an alpha female has a strong personality and we are not afraid to speak our
mind. So when you start standing up for yourself and challenging conventional
wisdom, some people don’t know how to act.
After all, despite the leaps and bounds that we as women have made in society, there
are still people out there who would have you believe that women are the weaker sex.
Of course, it’s simply not true, but these cliches do hold many women back from
chasing our own dreams.
Everyone should be lifting women up instead of trying to beat them down. Everyone
benefits when we are given the space we need to become what we were meant to be.
Some do not want to be apart of that though.
14) You’re a feminist
Some people think feminism is a sign that they are weaker. But there is room for
everyone to be great on this planet. It’s not a competition, and we as women know
that, but some still feel intimidated by a strong, independent woman who knows what
she wants and is not afraid to go against the grain to get it.
Some people would rather than women return to a place of submission and not stand
out in the crowd.
15) You’re okay with being “the provider”
“Bringing home the bacon” is still a very real thing for men in today’s society, but with
more of us women taking home the bacon on our own, the need for a man on our arm
is becoming less and less important to us as alpha women.
What’s scary for people is that they are quickly realizing that being a provider might be
all they were traditionally good for, because if we are passing up people because we
don’t need their financial support, what does that say about their personalities and the
other qualities they bring to the table…not much.
You’re perfectly okay with looking after yourself, your family and your lover because
you can handle any responsibility thrown onto your shoulders.
16) You’re okay with taking control
An alpha female, we are perfectly okay with taking control and leading the charge.
Whether it’s in the bedroom, at work, or with friends, we like to be lead the way so that
everyone can succeed.
