While some men can be complete jerks, others can help broaden your perspective and teach you things you never knew possible. Here are 8 types of men to help you find the ideal companions.

1. The Alpha Male

Alpha men radiate confidence, strength and assertiveness in all aspects of their lives. People follow them naturally due to their natural leadership qualities.

These individuals don’t lose sight of their goals – be they material or personal – and aim for them with great determination.

Regardless of any obstacles standing in their way, they’re determined to overcome them and take calculated risks to reach their goals.

Alpha actors possess the ability to maintain control of their emotions in stressful environments and remain calm under pressure, using their strength for good by showing empathy with others – this is true strength. Watch as this alpha actor reclaims his space from an interviewer’s fidgeting.

2. The Beta Male

Studies of men’s psychology and relationships reveal that beta males tend to allow their partners to take control of the relationship, with a laid-back attitude and preferring their comfort zone over challenging themselves to meet goals or stand up to others’ advice. They don’t demonstrate much grit when it comes to reaching goals on their own or standing up against being told what to do by others.

If they find themselves embroiled in an argument, they’ll often opt to walk away rather than fight back due to fear of upsetting anyone’s feelings (3). They are, however, loyal and caring individuals which makes them wonderful partners (4) and very easy to talk with and open up to.

3. The Gentleman

A gentleman is well aware that their appearance plays a key role in their success. They take great pride in personal grooming and conduct an annual image audit to make sure it aligns with their goals.

He treats women with respect and acts politely in public. He opens doors for them and pulls out chairs when needed.

He carries himself with confidence without becoming arrogant, understanding the difference between self-validation and egotism, as well as practicing humility. Furthermore, he recognizes that power can either be used for good or for evil and strives to use his for the greater good of others; never trampling over their rights in pursuit of personal gain.

4. The Provider

Men who serve as Providers often take pride in providing for their loved ones financially, often prioritizing financial security over anything else. This can lead to an authoritarian and controlling relationship in which women serve submissively under them.

Providers may become controlling, becoming defensive when they feel disrespected. Overthinking and worrying may also increase anxiety levels; if this behavior appears in your partner, seek counseling for men with anxiety management as soon as possible.

5. The Creative

Men who are creative see the world differently, interpreting common experiences into something extraordinary and meaningful. Creative men can bring an extra special magic into any relationship they enter.

Men who are creative often also experience feelings of anxiety and insecurity. They may spend considerable time contemplating themselves alone, reflecting upon their feelings and thoughts, being sensitive yet empathic or passive-aggressive as appropriate. Counseling services specifically targeting anxiety may prove extremely useful for these men who grew up with parents who were anxious or workaholic; often this causes anger and stress that continues into adulthood.

6. The Nice Guy

Nice Guys are generally described as being kind, gentle, generous, and compassionate individuals who strive to avoid confrontation while willingly helping others without expecting anything in return.

Individuals who struggle with expressing their emotions and needs often resort to passive-aggression when their efforts go unappreciated, communicating through indirect or sarcastic language which leads to miscommunication in relationships.

Pop culture depicts this trope often depicting men who pursue romantic crushes despite knowing they are “out of their league.” They become bitter when their crush chooses someone else instead, often out of insecurity and false sense of entitlement that stems from deep-seated insecurities; believing their kindness entitles them to an intimate relationship.

7. The Alpha Male

Alpha males are individuals who possess natural leadership abilities. They tend to take an “no-nonsense” approach to life and often seek relationships that provide meaningful experiences and connections.

They show excellent self-control even during high-stress situations, often remaining calm and composed under pressure; something which many admire about them.

They value meaningful connections with others and show genuine interest in helping when there is need. Their quiet confidence allows them to lead effectively; when eye contact is made it’s usually with purpose; either to drive home a point or gauge reaction.

8. The Beta Male

Beta males possess a sensitive side and understand their emotions. They challenge toxic masculinity by accepting their feelings and cultivating more authentic relationships.

Fearful of leading others and lacking the assertiveness to defend themselves, these individuals prefer letting someone else manage their lives instead.

Kind natures make them easy targets of those in power and they may fail to realize they’re being taken advantage of until it is too late. Many are content with where they currently stand and do not take any steps toward progress until forced by outside forces to do so.
