In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro says this video has been a long time coming. They've been together 15 years. They've been married for 10 years, and she is the love of his life.
The Dark Side of YouTube
First, he wants to talk about YouTube about a business and platform. YouTube has made his dreams come true, and he can't believe he's been this fortunate. As amazing as it is, there's a dark side that he was not aware of when he started. The more popular he gets, the darker and scarier it gets.
Alpha's somewhat okay with the negative comments, although they hurt. Criticism is never easy, especially things you were never aware of. People can zero in on flaws and perceived weaknesses. It sucks - we're human. The other side is the crazy people. There are literally crazy people who have created scary situations for Alpha which have caused him to protect himself and his home.
Alpha's Conscious Decision
The joy out-shadows the precautions. But when Alpha first started, he made a conscious decision not to include his wife because he was opening himself up (not her) to the criticism. She didn't sign up for this - she's private. He's been scared to introduce her to the world in this medium. He keeps this aspect of his life for himself even though he shares an unbelievable amount otherwise. He's very vulnerable.
If they had kids, which they don't, he wouldn't put his kids on YouTube either. It's dangerous. Content is king, and some people share everything on YouTube. Ultimately, he wants to protect her so she's not featured. How can you not want to protect your loved ones? Alpha thanks you for your understanding and support.
Congrats Alpha, you're making something every MAN should do protecting those who love. Thank you for making those videos that makes us grow up, i'm 18 but this number is nothing, mind is more important, and you have a lot. Thanks bro.
I just started watching you a few weeks ago. We come from the same city (I can tell by the accent) and I kind of thought you were a decent dude until now.... this puts you into the stratosphere of ALPHA BROTHER!! Thank you for taking the time to keep us all fly brother!
First I wanna say thank you, I’ve been working on changing my style when it comes to dressing , I followed your advices, with a tight budget I working my way to looking awesome, be careful I didn’t know things like that will happen to a YouTuber, God bless you I appreciate you and please keep posting more videos so I can learn how to dress and look awesome. Adios mi amigo. Do you speak Spanish by any chance? I’m just curious.
I couidn't relate to you more. I'm from Venezuela and it is indeed dangerous to show such kind of things (though most people do it anyway, making kidnapping easier). It is even dangerous to show how wealthy you are, it's better to be as low profile as possible.
What's up dude! Just wanted to drop by in the comment section and let you know that I would probably do the same if I was a married content creator with a wide audience. I'm only 14 years old saying this and I don't understand many of the responsibilities you as an adult,and a role model for many,including myself,undergo but I totally support you in this. God bless you. 💪🔥
I agree with you 100% you made the right decision for you and your wife. As for the negative comments well, you can’t please everyone and you shouldn’t try either. Great content is what you are known for and why we all come to your channel. Have a great day!!!
You're a good man mate, I can tell. And you're wife is very lucky to have you, no homo. There's alot of fakers and show offs out there, you certainly aren't one of them. I can tell you have real passion for what you do, and that truly is a good thing. I wasn't so sure about you at first which I guess is a normal reaction to have, but I feel like I understand a little better now. 👍
Fuck critics buddy you're the best, i love you appreciate your work, God bless you brother, i learn alot from your vidoes as i can say I'm just alive because of you, hoping to see you one day.. keep up to the work sir.🙌
I have only watched about 5 of your videos, in the last few days. Perhaps I read in too much into how you occur. It seems to me (only on viewing 5 videos)
that you are a contributor, which I wonder if perhaps is somewhat rare in the world. Certainly not all contributors a genuine or arrive with the best of sharing intentions.
Your decision to keep you wife's identity private is a distinction of wisdom & on a sober awareness of how the world really is.
It is the unspoken things that say more about a person. I admire you energy, openness & spirit that comes across in your videos.
In this video, I get the feeling, its like some significant part of you want to share that part of your life with the world.
I wonder what the world would look like, where that was not a problem, a world where it were universally safe to do so.
The other thing is that a 15+ year strong relationship is rare & such a rich
base on which meaningful conversations about relationship could be had.
I like hearing & reading real stories about relationships that are balanced &
really do work, given the way my life has turned out, I find that a surprise.
Whether most realize or not, so few have such relationships. I am 48 & I can't say I have ever had one.
I recall Christopher Reeve (of superman fame) & his wife in an interview, some time after his accident. It amazed me of how they spoke of each other, unlike any couples I have ever known. So I can only assume that is rare.
Anything good that ever happened with any of my past associations with
woman was short lived & eventually led to some kind of "Modern Woman" drama. No shortage of smart people that pointed out that the problem could
only be me. I really can say how valid that is.
I think in my 20ies & 30ies, I was that Mr Nice Guy door mat, after while, you
get a bit sick of building women there pycho-sexual dolphin water features & being judged for how much money you make or do not make. I suspect that
must be problematic for men across the whole income spectrum.
Nothing I did for my former wife was ever good enough, I was like an unpaid
employee. It was a similar theme with other women, in all fairness, I am not perfect, so the problem could be to some extent me. I am not proud or automatically seek to blame the world outside of me.
For me it was just way less drama to keep to myself, cease & not assist, or serve.
I have not had anything to do with a woman in 10 years & I go to some significant extent to avoid women (especially in my work) & its like it is almost automatic in me.
It is not that I do not like women, I just do not trust them. I am aware of my
limitations, that I lack the sophistication & sober discernment to know a good woman from a bad one, they are a bit more complicated than eggs.
I don't know what it would be to ever change that in me. It is not that I am unread or a man that has not endeavored to improve himself. I certainly do not believe that it is all my fault.
Situations like yours seem somewhat unreal to what my experiences have
So if there is any value to be found in what I have written here then I would
want it to be the understanding or the idea that what it sounds like you have with your wife is the exception rather than the rule. & that it might not necessarily be the case or cause of a faulty or un-tweeked man in every circumstance.
I appreciate you videos.

I've been bingeing your videos for awhile now, Aaron. At first, I found you because I needed help with what to do with my hair. But I stuck around because of you. You're just really endearing. You know all the great things about yourself and that's why you have the life you have. A wife you love, a job you enjoy and are successful with, and a large subscriber base. They're here because of you, your personality, hard work, knowledge, and how you make people feel who watch your videos. You make your viewers feel like somebody, not just another "view". I'm writing this because I know you make a lot of people feel good about themselves; that's the entire point of your channel! So it upset me that there are comments on here that have made you feel bad even though all you're trying to achieve is good; for you, your family, and your viewers. You're awesome and I hope this comment helped cancel out a few of the negative ones. -Will
Everyone on Youtube gets negative comments. There is no avoiding it no matter what you do, alpha. You have a 50:1 like dislike ratio, that's good. I've made videos that were 1:10, that's bad. Keep up the good work man.
The internet is a sea of valuable information of all accumulated human knowledge where we can delve into any subject known to man and learn every single detail about it without leaving our bedrooms. If used properly, we can all become nuclear physicists and create a Utopia of quantum power where the monetary system becomes void because we do have all the knowledge and technology as humans to satisfy all our human needs while preserving the planet’s natural resources and without any wars. It’s all there at our fingertips. But you’re idiots. We are all idiots.
As hip-hop remains a staple in our society, we continue to appreciate the artists behind this broad genre of music. While Biggie and Tupac represent the best of hip-hop excellence from both coasts, we also remember these two as humans beings, just like the rest of us. With that comes personality, charm, and, of course, a good sense-of-humor.
Today, with the ever-changing nuances of technology and the Internet, rappers can express themselves and their senses of humor in ways far beyond that their music. Whether it’s a GIF, a tweet, a meme, a Snapchat — there’s never a bad time to insert comedy into any given situation. When it comes to music videos, Lil Dicky sets the bar high with “$ave Dat Money,” which clocks in at over 84 million views and counting. Aside from his undeniable talent behind the mic, LD effortlessly reveals a career in comedy is at his fingertips.
