If a girl dhv by putting me down, as a joke, is it still alpha to agree with it and play along?
I'm not sure is this is even her demonstrating DHV or simply lowering mine.
Example (Summary of a convo I had today)
Me: I'm going to run that marathon
HB: I don't think you could handle it!
Me: You're right, when I get tired I'm going to get you to carry me the rest of the way since you're so tough!
HB: Haha that sounds like a workable plan!
