This can refer to many things, like the second letter of the greek alphabet, software in development, or a person.

In the case of a person, a beta male is submissive, clingy, indecisive, weakminded, and unconfident. He can't deal with confrontation or challenges. He lets things happen instead of taking action.

When it comes to women, he either sucks up to them and loses their respect, or is too afraid to pursue them. If he does get a girlfriend, he makes too many demands on her, and either drives her away or becomes locked into servitude. The hoverhand is one of the surest signs of a beta.

Overall, he is the opposite of an alpha male.
Did you see him spam that girl's facebook page full of messages without getting a response? That was really beta.

Beings of Extra Terrestrial origin Adversary to human race. Official name for the grotesque alien creatures of the Muv Luv visual novel/anime franchise. Identification tips of most BETA types: multiple limbs on lower body, phallic head, giant mouth with only molars. All other alien organisms associated with identified BETAs are their more dangerous cousins.

They can and will consume everything in their path if not stopped by 36MM chaingun fire. Don't panic if you think this description fits some humans you know.
A: You're such a dickhead for helping yourself to my fridge.
B: I'm practicing my BETA imitation routine! (bites A)

A guy who worships his girl in a toolbag sort of way. Also a loser, or someone who is not exactly the "alpha" in the social wolf pack.
