Don’t go try to be an alpha male though – what you think it means and what it actually is are likely two very different things.
It might seem counter-intuitive, but being attractive is something you can learn to do by paying attention to your beliefs, behaviours, body language, and putting at least a bit of effort into being decent looking.
2) This genetic programming is based on what works in an environment that is VERY different from the environment we live in now.
We no longer have to run from predators, hunt and forage for food, and engage in conflict with neighbouring tribes.
Things that were typically a disadvantage aren’t such a big deal anymore – people who would’ve been left for dead can now be productive, successful members of society who can provide for a family.
Although you don’t really need to be your classic alpha male type to survive and do well these days, the ancient attraction programming remains intact and pushes women towards guys who behave this way.
In fact, some organizations have policies that prohibit these types of relationships.
According to Vault.com's 2010 Office Romance Survey, almost 60 percent of respondents admitted to having participated in some form of workplace romance.
When a supervisor is dating a subordinate, other workers might claim that the subordinate received preferential treatment in job assignments or pay raises, says a partner with the labor and employment practice of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham.
The Society for Human Resource Management and Career conducted a Workplace Romance survey in 2006 and found that only 9 percent of the HR professionals surveyed indicated that dating among employees was prohibited in their organizations.
More than 70 percent did not have formal written or verbal policies dealing with romantic relationships.
