Amidst his asshole philosophizing, the Chateau Heartiste drops another nugget of wisdom… or rather his reader “Hawk” did:

Betas acknowledge the girl’s charms prior to her acting to please, alphas do so afterwards.

Unless your wife is doing any of the following…

  1. Showing cleavage
  2. Wearing tight clothing or fashionable clothes with high heels
  3. Working out
  4. Wearing sexy lingerie or nothing at all
  5. Cheerfully performing her domestic duties
  6. Being happy and flirtatious
  7. Giving you head

…then it’s probably counter-productive to tell her she’s “beautiful” or “sexy.”
