That’s how you can spot an alpha woman.

  1. She embraces her sexuality.

Sexuality is something that is seen a few different ways. In many places, people view sexual women as improper or taboo. An alpha female, however, will embrace her sexuality.

Actually, she will take on more and more responsibility. Why? Because an alpha woman can handle it. In fact, she likes it.

When a woman knows just how much she’s capable of, she will want more responsibility than anyone.

  1. She doesn’t let aging bother her.

Many of us women are really worried about aging. We’re scared of losing our youth because we believe it means we’ve lost our influence. The truth is, aging is something to look forward to. It’s gaining experience and growing into something powerful. And guess what. Alpha women know this and embrace this.

They welcome aging because they know that no matter what they look like, they’ll still be able to demand what they want.

  1. She never complains or whines.

Have you ever seen an in-charge woman complain about anything? I didn’t think so. They don’t whine about the things they don’t like. They get out there and they change them. They take advantage of the things they could complain about instead of making a big scene. They use their unhappiness with those things as fuel to work hard to change them instead of sitting around whining about them. You will never hear an alpha woman whine or complain about her life because she knows it will do no good.

  1. She doesn’t make excuses.

Much like an alpha woman doesn’t complain, she never makes excuses. If she messes up, she will own up to it. She will take responsibility – no matter how bad it is. She knows that if something is her fault, she alone should be the one to fix it. She’ll never sit and fuss about why something didn’t go the way it should. She’ll recognize her mistakes, accept them, and then put in the work to fix them.

  1. She isn’t afraid of being single.

This is another thing not many people will realize about an alpha woman but it’s an important one. She will never be afraid of being single. If you’re an alpha woman, you know your own value and you do not base that value off of your relationship status.
