    I'll take one alpha male, please. Though beta males are easygoing, I sometimes find them too predictable. It must be from twenty years of being surrounded by Special Forces soldiers. They kept me wondering what they were going to do next. :)

    Very helpful list. I'm with Pam--I'll take alpha.

    Well, I am gone all day and you are giving away heroes? I'll take a beta hero, please. Then, if I can have seconds, well....

    Reading the list, I'm not sure which one I want. My heroes are all alphas, but all the men who are attracted to me seem to be betas.

    How about a mix of the two?

    This is a great resource. I'm going to print it out and keep for future reference. Thanks for posting.
