The reason they want 'alpha' men is because they want the men to lead the romantic relationship.
As a side note, both of them would have been dominant with weaker men.

I suppose I wasn't clear.
I meant in terms of romantic/sexual submission (not always needing dominance/control).
I also meant in terms of not having to be completely controlling of someone else or all situations all of the time.
I suppose IMO that is what makes it 50/50
By being confident in themselves and their position, they are able to give that up at times and be confident that that the primary position is still held by them primarily. The leader for example.
This is my experience.
I'm probably still not making sense. That's part of the problem with anecdotes.
I am more of omega personality. Im more interested in seeing you (and everyone else) thrive and succeed, and will find my success hidden within yours. I think that is what you are talking about.
ETA: it seems that the actual definition of "omega male" has changed. The closest to what I am referring to is now called the "sigma male".
