It’s also hard for independents to stay with one man for very long, or at least stay monogamous. The point is, don’t expect a relationship with a Dominant if you’re a more Alpha guy, unless you like drama. ) Obviously as you read above you’ll see links between the man types and the woman types. If a beta ends up with a Submissive, the Submissive will take control and then start growing resentment. Nuclear explosions occur when Needy Alphas hook up with Dominants.
Having children also tends to slow them down, and perhaps they even secretly resent being mothers just a little bit. This does happen and it’s funny to watch all the predictable meltdowns and explosions. Independents will get a little more submissive in the face of a Needy Alpha , but then the Needy Alpha wakes up one morning to see his Independent girlfriend has left him, and with no explanation, and he can’t get her back no matter what he tries.
But at their core, they like it when a man is at least the 60% boss.
Submissives are still women, so they can be extremely high-drama at times, and they will still have expectations they expect men to adhere to.
As you might have guessed, Independents are the loose equivalent of an Alpha.
