Re: How to get the Alpha Female?
I agree with immortal. I do think you can game her without having to leave her side but you need to emit an entirely different aura about yourself.
To me it sounds like you've automatically placed your value on yourself slighly under hers in everyway. You're afraid she holds all the cards because she's been your wing. To me that makes her think she's safe and you allow that zone to exist without any control. It doesnt sound like the friend zone has ever come into play between the two of you.
If anything your best chances are like immortal said. Seperate. In my personal opinion if she insists on getting an answer from you tell her you're friend zoning her, and be a little honest in saying you were starting to have feelings for her. This is an advanced and tricky move that may backfire but i personally like to gamble.
Every moment counts, get out of your head and enjoy it.
