When looking for information about ingénues, I found some a-hole's blog where he, self proclaimed Alpha, was telling his readers how to deal "femmes fatales", among them "Eternal Ingenue".
I am one of these ingénues.
I, too, have a "daddy's little girl" complex. I married a big brother to protect me and to father me.
I have noticed how men want to protect me. I awaken the father instinct in them.
"books and talk and advice are beta"? Idiot. If he thinks that, he's a
boy, not an Alpha male. He's not worth playing my dad. He's not worth my
looking up to him with big, innocent eyes, admiring, amazed by his
brilliance and wisdom. By his capacity to provide for me. By his skills,
experience and confidence. He doesn't have any. He's just a lot of
talk, and he sees women as play things, because he's just a child still.
Alpha, my ass. No wonder he can't keep any women.
am not only an ingénue, you know. I'm also an Alpha. And I recognize
another Alpha when I see one. And this idiot is not one. He's just a
wannabe, so he's pretending, playing an alpha male, doing all the things
he believes alpha males do, saying all the things he assumes alphas
should say. Having pissing contests and sparring and boasting, but if a
true alpha would enter the stage, he would shut up as quickly as all the
others - or would, if he had any grip of reality.
I really dislike alpha wannabes.
