The act of temporarily bolstering your own social status and the expense of another male
(usually a friend). Most often
seen in terms of an almost reflexive physiological reaction in the presence of an uncommonly
attractive female. One male
may physically or verbally insult his companion in order to portray his dominant status in the male
is often facetious
and is likely to be viewed
negatively by the insulted party. The alpha-dogger
will also feel like a bit of a dick.
1:"wtf brah, you just grabbed my ass, you're alpha-dogging because
you saw that hot piece
2:"sorry dude, I was powerless against the force of millions of years of evolution
and the forced suppression of my primal, ape brain by modern society"
1:"it's cool dog, I understand"
