Good news! Today's professional women can be just as successful at love and marriage as they are in their careers! With the number of female breadwinners rising steadily, it’s clear that we’re in a time of massive social transformation - with women leading the charge.
Unfortunately, these amazingly successful women are often told that success will always spell doom for their love life and chances of marriage and family.
Dr. Sonya Rhodes tells women not to believe the negative hype. Today’s Alpha women - the ambitious, self-assured career women - don’t need to settle for Mr. Good Enough. They won’t wind up lonely spinsters just because they work hard and didn’t get married right out of school. But she does affirm what Sheryl Sanberg tells women in LEAN IN: The most important decision a woman can make to assure success in both her personal and professional life is finding the right partner. And then Dr. Sonya tells these women how to do it.
Dr. Sonya routinely sees Alpha women as a therapist. Their romantic lives are frequently sidetracked by a counter-productive search for the Alpha man. And he is usually the wrong man for her. According to Dr. Sonya, Alpha women should look past the overly competitive, domineering Alpha males to find a man who’s in touch with his inner Beta qualities - someone communicative, responsible, thoughtful, and collaborative.
Dr. Sonya strips the terms “Alpha” and “Beta” of all value judgments; Beta men aren’t wimpy or dull any more than Alpha women are bitchy and unfeminine. In fact, most people are both Alpha and Beta, and this book includes a revealing test that helps readers figure out where on the Alpha-Beta spectrum they and their partners lie, because most Alpha women need to get in touch with their Beta qualities too! Meticulously researched by a top relationship therapist, THE ALPHA WOMAN MEETS HER MATCH is a must-have for today’s successful single women.
