Aside from my opening speech, this was the first speech given at The 21 Convention 2011 of Orlando Florida (click the screenshot to view a preview). It was my personal favorite of the entire conference, because I found so much value in it relevant to where I am at in my personal development as of right now, it was hard to even fully digest at the time. In fact I watched it 7 times over in the course of a week once I got a hold of the full version. It was that amazing.

Consequently, and thanks to further discussions with Socrates via phone, his ideas (if not the sum of his entire mindset on male/female relationships)  in very large part produced the result of me starting my first relationship with a woman who is absolutely incredible, less than a month after the speech was physically given and filmed at the event.

In light of this, the introduction I give Sock is almost eerie in this video (stating things that concretely happen in my life only weeks later, things that are by no means small in impact on my personal life).

    The dude knows what he’s talking about. Where can Sock’s online content be found? I’m interested to hear/read more

    You can find my presentation in relative outline format (with minor narrative, but not to the degree the speech has) on The Dream Lounge under the Male/Female Relationships forum… You can also contact me via the forum and ask questions. Other material is part of other forums and not specifically compiled…

    It was my pleasure to be able to give this presentation and be a part of the 21 Convention after seeing how far you’ve taken this concept in such a short time period. It was my intent to provide an honest and straight forward presentation that I would have loved to have the experience of 20 years ago myself. I was so happy to find so much of it resonated with so many of the attendees in so many different ways and was terribly pleased to socialize with them and have continuing frank discussions with all of them afterwards and the days that followed… Overall it was a truly amazing experience to be a part of.

    The icing on the cake though was our talks afterwards and seeing how those discussions reverberated with you and your life… Your relationship is a culmination of whom you’ve become and a direct reflection of who you are. If I was part of your journey, I am terribly touched and it is the way things should be. Men helping men… Men in the company of other men and what a strong, vibrant male community can and should be able to achieve; better lives for all those involved.

    And in light of your introduction I’m really glad I came prepared… I’ve shamelessly, watched/listened to the presentation four times today while doing some work during the weekend… granted I’m looking at what I did well, what I didn’t, things I could have done better, such as finding a synonym for ‘aspect’, but overall I’m immensely pleased about the quality and sincerity of material given. Much of it terribly personal for me and several people in my immediate life… I hope others can sense and feel the power behind many of those experiences, as many of these were no small affair.

    You’re changing lives, not just your own here… and in many ways helping to shape and drive culture and our society to a better place. That’s an awesome legacy and achievement.

    “Your relationship is a culmination of whom you’ve become and a direct reflection of who you are.”

    Would be beneficial for the Roissy crowd to realize that. They continue to project outward their inner selves and wonder why all women they meet are bitches.
