How does your time with a woman look:
– I found the most expensive and nice place(s) and paid for everything. Less than beta.
– I found a reasonably priced and decent place(s) and paid for everything. Beta. This is what most women will date and marry.
– I split the cost of the date. Upper beta.
– I split the cost and only did what I wanted. Lower alpha.
– I made money, did what I wanted, and got what I wanted. Ultimate alpha.
Added: I guess I could summarize this post in one sentence – a beta is already attached before a date, during and after it while an alpha isn’t.
