Can An Alpha Male Be Short?

can an alpha male be short

Yes. Alpha males can be short.

If you think that you (short man) cannot be an alpha, then your understanding of alpha male is flawed.

Being an alpha male is a state of mind (characteristic trait), not a physical trait.

However, height can give a man an additional advantage when it comes to looking dominant, but still, you can be alpha, if you possess other alpha male traits.

Can a short man be an alpha male?

Yes, and tall men can be a beta male.

Dominance is the most prominent trait of an alpha male. No matter how tall you are, your behavior dictates when it comes to dominance. I’ll let that sink in.

Many men (especially the ones below 6 foot but above 5’6″ ) think that cannot be an alpha male because they are short.

Let me break it down to you, you can be alpha all you have to do is be confident and assertive. Don’t let anyone walk over you like you are a doormat, stand up for your friends and those who are in need, make plans and stick to it.

Example: Russian President Vladimir Putin is an alpha male. His height is 5’7″.

What society thinks should be the minimum height of an alpha male?

(F!$# society)

According to data from Wikipedia, the average height for men worldwide is 5 feet 8 inches (173 cm). The average height of an adult male in the united states is 5 feet 9 inches,  about 176 cm (according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) conducted from 2007 to 2010).

However, there are no big surveys conducted on average alpha male height (joking but true).

While researching, I decided to visit forums like, Reddit, etc… to see what people think about the same.

can an alpha male be short

A majority agreed that height doesn’t matter and mentioned short alpha celebs like Peter Dinklage (4’4″), Verne Troyer (2’8″), Bushwick Bill (3’8″), and many more.

I also came across some people (especially women showing off their racks) who commented that any man below 6’4″ cannot be an alpha male. Bruh!!! Anyway, I laughed my ass off as they were bashed by others on the forum.

If you ask anyone, “What should be the minimum height of an alpha male?”, I’m pretty sure that they will reply above 6 feet. Well, we can’t blame them as their opinion is purely based on movies which portray tall handsome men with abs as the alpha male.

If you are 5’10” but, obsessing over not being 6’0″ because your friend told that you have to be at least 6’0″ to be an alpha male. Here are some celebrities below 6’0″, who are alpha males, in my opinion.

  1. Robert Downey Jr. – 5’9”
  2. Sylvester Stallone – 5’9”
  3. Al Pacino – 5’7”
  4. Tom Hardy – 5’10”
  5. Jason Statham – 5’9”
  6. Vin Diesel – 5’9”
  7. Arnold Schwarzenegger – 5’10”

How to embrace your shortness?

Be positive and understand that its all perception.

Stop looking at things from your angle. If you think you are short and cannot be a dominant male, you certainly cannot be one.

People focus on what they lack. It’s human nature. In your case, it’s your height.  Similarly, other people have their own insecurities and they focus on it. They wouldn’t even care about how short you are.

So, it is time to switch your focus on things that matter. Build your body, read books, talk to people, create another stream of income, and finally, find someone you can love for the rest of your life.

Pros and cons of being a short alpha


  • You look more muscular
  • Look younger for your age (disadvantage sometimes)
  • Increased longevity
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease

  • Women are taller than you sometimes (but this shouldn’t stop you from approaching them)
  • People don’t take you seriously at times
  • Can’t dominate other ‘tall’ alphas in real life
  • High chances of losing a fistfight with a tall muscular guy.

    Will tall women date shorter men?

The question many short men have. But first, let’s take a look at some statistics.

The average height of women across the globe:

  • Unites States –  5’4″
  • United Kingdom – 5’3″
  • Australia – 5’3″
  • India – 5’0″

Now, back to the question.

According to many ladies, dating a short man is a big NO. Basically, you need to be women expect you to be as tall as them or taller. This means that you should be at least 5’4″ if you are in the US as the average height of women in the US is 5’4″. Same applies to other countries.

Now, on average, women say that the ideal height for a man is 5’11”. They consider 5’2″ as too short and any man above 6’2″ is too tall for them.

Remember, you can be 6’0″ or above, but if you aren’t attractive or don’t have charisma, then you probably will end up single.

There is another screwed-up case (exists!). If a woman is extremely tall, let’s say 6’2″ and insecure about it, she will probably end up with a short dude.

So, if you are decent looking, and know how to dress well for your body type, then approach women with confidence, chances are you may find someone with whom you can spend the rest of your life, happily.

To boost your confidence, here are some photos of tall women with short men:

To keep it really simple, height doesn’t matter to be an alpha male. Mindset does.

Why alpha males appear as loners?

Alphas usually appear as loners because they talk less. They know the value of their word. They know the value of their time. So, they don’t spend it arguing with naysayers or gossiping with his friends.

There is an old saying that goes by “Wise men talk because they have something to say, and fools talk because they have to say something“. Alphas know it is simple as that.

Just imagine you talking to your friend. Almost 90% of your conversation consists of badmouthing others, talking about the girl you like, talking shit about your job or school. The reason why an alpha doesn’t do this, because, he knows that it is not gonna help him achieve his goals.

While you may think that an alpha male is going through a hard time and that is why he is refraining to interact with the community but he is actually minding his own business or building his empire.

Rolling alone also gives an alpha male that dominant silhouette and it makes people think subconsciously that he is a man of high value who should be respected.

However, he is always available when approached. And, he is never afraid to start a conversation and keep it going.

While an alpha male may be a loner, but he can never be shy.

A shy guy lacks confidence which is like the backbone of an alpha male. Shy guys often conversing with someone. They act weirdly around people they don’t know well.

Shy guys are silent but not by choice. They show an inability to lead a group. Most of them lack responsibility and don’t have the guts to accept their mistake in public.

Alpha males, on the other hand, are leaders who usually tell people what to do. They are dangerously confident and vulnerable.

Dominance is the sexiest trait of an alpha male.  He controls his woman and leads her all the way. In fact, women are sexually attracted to the concept of being controlled.

Alpha males like it rough in bed and he does whatever he wants as long as she consents to it. Secretly, all women want the same. She wants her man to grab her ass, hold her hair and make her his naughty little girl. Alphas know well that it turns her on.

He knows for sure that more dominant he is, more submissive and feminine his woman can be. It makes easier for her and harder she comes. Even multiple times.

However, alphas are confident af. He won’t mind if his woman wants to control him for a change. In fact, he loves a strong woman who can take care of herself – both in and out of bed.

He knows what he does 

And does different things every time to keep sex interesting.

Alpha knows that women love to be owned in the bedroom. Women don’t want some boring guy who fucks her the same way and climaxes before she does.

But he never asks permission, he tells her what to do in a sexy voice. Girls go crazy over it.

If he wants his woman to blow him or switch positions, then he will seductively tell her that and guide her through it. He doesn’t hurt his woman unless she wants to be (See what I did there?).

He never asks his woman for sex. If he wants to have sex with his woman, then he is not afraid to randomly lift her, take her to the bed, and start making love.

Alpha males give their woman wants. He is a master of sex and never hesitates to eat her out, play with her boobs or stimulate her clits. By doing this, he makes her cum all the time, every time.

He knows that foreplay is something that she loves and it gets her wet. It makes him easier to attain his primary aim, i.e, to please her in bed and make her attain multiple orgasms.

So, he plays with her hair, kisses her on the lips, slowly moves to the ears and nibbles it, goes down on the neck kissing, plays with her nipples while rubbing her back lovingly and then goes to the vagina. 

An alpha male makes her weak at the knees with his manhood. He isn’t some selfish pussy, who reaches climax first and leaves his woman midway. His greatest pleasure is to hear her moan when he thrust his cock deep into her.

After the sweet intimate time is over, he tells her how amazing she is. He kisses her passionately and cuddles with her. Heck, even starts another round if she wants it too.

An alpha male in the bedroom knows it his job to provide his woman what she wants. He will make her feel special and loved.
