7 Things Alpha Women Need In A Relationship

Every once in a while, you come across a strong, independent woman who may give off an intimidating vibe. She just might be an alpha woman. Alpha women are confident, ambitious and they tell it like it is. They are used to taking charge but their power can end up being too intimidating for some, especially a romantic partner. For a significant other, it can be difficult to find a place in a relationship with an alpha woman. Here’s what an alpha woman needs to maintain a healthy, lasting relationship:


1. She Needs To Be Respected
An alpha woman will treat you with respect, and that’s what she’ll expect in return. She is confident enough to have respect for herself, and she won’t keep anyone in her life who looks down on her. She needs her partner to respect her decisions and to trust her.
2. She Needs To Be Challenged
An alpha woman needs excitement in a relationship. She needs a partner who will challenge her. She needs someone who isn’t afraid of a little friendly and harmless competition. An alpha woman’s partner needs to be able to hold their own.

3. She Needs Trust
They need to know that what they tell you in confidence will stay in that relationship vault. They need to be able to vulnerable and let their guard down once in a while. They need to trust someone not to stab them in the back for their own personal gain.
4. She Needs Honesty
All relationships need honesty, but a relationship with an alpha woman is less forgiving than others. If you lie once, they call it quits. This is probably because they know how valuable their time is, and won’t waste it on someone who isn’t a potential keeper.
5. She Needs To Be Able To Laugh
It’s true that alpha women work hard, but they like to play hard too. After an exhausting day, they need someone who can help to lighten their thoughts (and the mood). They need to be able to laugh, so if you can make them smile and forget about the worries of life for a bit, they’ll certainly want to keep you around.
6.She Needs A Safe Space. 
This may be the most important one. While every alpha woman you know is basically a machine who moves from one place to another, like a ninja who makes shit happen, there is going to come a time where that well-oiled machine breaks down.
7.  She Needs Someone Who Can Keep Up
An alpha woman is often running at full speed. She has an agenda, she knows what needs to be done and she isn’t afraid of some hard work. She needs a partner who can keep up with her busy lifestyle, someone who isn’t afraid of an intense, high-pressure environment.
