I never really thought about social hierarchy in humans, it does exist but it’s so loose. I mean it isn’t just based on brute strength there’s so many other social factors that play into it. Anyway I didn’t post to examine human social hierarchies. The more time I spend with her the more I see it, she’s like an alpha female. I’ve seen these traits expressed in men before but never in a woman. I have no complaints really, my masculinity isn’t threatened by it. I’ve always said she was more a lioness than a delicate flower. It’s a strange balance. She displays all of these ‘alpha’ qualities but she’s also really sweet and you know, feminine. One thing I’ve learned in my short time is she gets what she wants. Just happens to be me. I don’t think she’d agree with me if I told her she was pretty much archetypal alpha female.
It throws me through a loop sometimes. She’s intelligent, fiercely protective and yet gentle and kind. Recently she ran into some trouble with a guy who was harassing her and yeah it didn’t end well for him. When a woman says ‘No’ you don’t touch. Especially not when the woman in question could break every bone in your body. In her own words ‘if he didn’t look like something was wrong with him I’d have beat his ass.’ This girl isn’t afraid of anything. It’s nice not to have to worry so much about her safety. I’m also finding it weird to have a woman be so protective of me. It isn’t over the top or anything but yeah it’s different from anything I’ve ever experienced. I guess growing up as a woman in Brazil makes you tougher. She’s one of the fiercest, most loyal and direct individuals I know. There’s none of the usual hissy-fit crap that I’ve experienced in the past. She’s pretty exceptional. That or I’m in love.
I’m in a relationship with a lioness. Either a lioness or tomb raider reincarnated. I think she’s ruined women for me forever.
