Today was a learning day. While talking to a HB5 classmate before class started, and making progress w/o trying, another classmate joins us. He is an Alpha and married w/kids! His Alpha ego pushed him into competition w/me for the HB5's attention. He kept checking me w/everything I said. If I would have said that I walked on water, he would have replied that it was too bad that I didn't know how to swim!
My error was to engage him in a battle of dhv and ignored the HB5 - testosterone can be a dangerous thing. The HB5, no longer being the center of our attention, got bored and left.
What I should have done was shut the front door and diverted the convo to the HB5 and kept her the center of attention. What I don't understand is why a "Married" Alpha still finds it necessary to compete for AMOG status.
I acted the way I did because, as an Alpha, I tend to fight for the leadership role of a group and that causes me to lose focus on my original goal - the target. The good thing is that I know the HB5 is interested and I'll have many more chances in the days ahead.
