If you sprinkle the Alpha and cut off the Beta it looks like bad shit happens. I think that is what we are seeing in several examples recent and ancient. We have long noted that you cannot just sprinkle some Alpha on it and make the meat taste good.
However, the pattern I claim to have identified in several cases is when you sprinkle on the Alpha AND at the same time suddenly stop being the Beta emotional tampon then you have suddenly removed the entire reason for her staying married to you. News flash: This is NOT going to make your marriage better.
Add a little "anger stage" into the mix and we have the makings of the cluster fuck described in many stories.
Let me help out especially you "Alpha" guys who are natural assholes. If you are going to sprinkle on some "Alpha" by, for example lifting, doing guy stuff, responding to shit tests, leading etc then it is NOT a good idea to also remove all the "Beta" for example listening to her, expressing emotional connection blah blah.
When we say go slow, we really, really mean it. Don't go Red Pill Rambo. Don't start to challenge your woman, especially in public. Don't remove YOU and your emotional connection to your wife (aka "Beta") at least not completely.
Do cut back on the Beta and increase the Alpha. Do become SLIGHTLY more aloof, confident, and busy. Do make an effort to pass Shit test AND COMFORT TESTS.
Posting on AskMRP as a lower quality post because I am not sure if I am right in my theory on relating Alpha sprinkles and Beta withdrawal. This is a concept I am hoping to flesh out because I think there is something there but I don't have it yet.
