Not sure why you motherfuckers ask for our advice but here's mine I guess.
Depends on the woman, op. Usually it's much easier to keep women happy than girls. Girls GENERALLY want to pretend they're in a real life long relationship, they don't understand that they're young and ready to easily move on to another mate until they've played the field and seen what the opposite sex like.
Women, however, GENERALLY have played the field and know what they want. If you fuck her and give her a little attention she'll hang around without much prompting. Women just want a guy who will fuck them ok enough and be nice enough to consider them a friend, and won't fuck around on them like they did to previous guys.
It's simple anon. If you want a girlfriend, always be prepared for the possibility that she's going to gravitate to some other guy and there's nothing you can do but make it harder for you and her. But, if you want a woman, just fuck her and try to treat her like you would a good friend and she's yours for life.
These are general rules. There are exceptions, but never go out hoping for the exception, there's an enormous chance you'll only be deeply disappointed.

Something like that. Good luck spending your life with a woman who hasn't, though. They're all pretty much sluts until they're mature and find someone that makes them feel secure.
Only teenagers on 4chan worry about that Alpha/Beta bullshit.
"Waah, I'm beta"
It's just an excuse to not man the fuck up and do what needss to be done. You've bbeen coddled. You don't hear these "Alphas" talking about being Alpha, do you? Because they know it's bullshit, too. All they did was man the fuck up. I swear you kids in here are worse than the tumblrette snowflakes with your excuses for not going and getting what you want. Grow the fuck up already.
>work your ass off so she can buy useless shit
>get dragged in her whole baby adventure
>risking your ass by getting loans for a bigger house
>risking to lose your kids if she ever decides to fuck off
no thanks. They tasted what else is out there. And no one will blame them for anything.
