You may have noticed the blog has been bustling with activity as of late. :)
Believe it or not, this is a sign of many cool things to come. It's been a few months since Real Social Dynamics has done anything note worthy, but that's changing on January 21st with the launch of RSDN 2.0.
We have some concerns that the server might be a bit sluggish on the day that it comes out, as we anticipate an unusually high number of people checking it out. If there are slowdowns on the first day then please be patient, as the site will begin to run very quickly on days 2, 3, and onwards. The server we use is high powered and expensive, however the number of people browing on that first day will be abnormally high.
It's been a dream of mine to launch this site since around 2005-2006. It seems sort of surreal to see it finally happening, and it's another milestone in this whole RSD project that I've involved myself in these past few years. I've worked with designers on and off since last January, and more intensely since the summer, to see this come to fruition. I guess I'll believe it when I see it finally go up.
To celebrate the launch of the site we are also releasing the RSD Mastermind Special. It features two seminars that I did after Blueprint, which I feel are two of the best I've ever recorded. It also features Jeffy, Tim, Alex, Ryan, Saad, Christophe, and others. Saad's "Day Game" disc is some of the sharpest daygame tutorial I've seen, and could easily be sold as a "stand alone" program. Ryan's "verbal game" program has been making waves of late as well, which you can read about on RSDN. Jeffy's disc is the material that he's worked on since the release of The Jeffy Show. All the discs are IMO absolutely solid and worth checking out.
If you haven't looked into this program yet, check it now:
Lastly, I've been slaving over "The Relationship Transition: A Pocketbook For Guys Living The Dating Abundant Lifestyle Looking To Make The Leap To Relationship Land" (tentative title) these past few months. I'm pretty much in love with this book. I feel like it's the future of Real Social Dynamics.
This is a book that shows where the community leads you. Instead of the melodrama we've all read over the years about how to get a girlfriend you have to discard everything you've learned in studying success with women, this book talks about how the knowledge you've gained can benefit you and improve your life. Being in a four and a half year relationship myself, I can't really imagine how that could have been possible without what I've learned here (or at least that I could have enjoyed it as much), and this book is going to talk about the insights I gained from that.
The community has evolved. When I was doing the Blueprint live seminars I always had at least half the room walking up on the breaks and saying "I'm not that excited by picking up girls anymore, because I have that decently handled, but I'm into the self development angle so I came to the program." There are many people who have done the community thing, gotten on with their lives, and they are hungry for a project that addresses what goes on AFTER the initial learning curve.
My team was pretty nervous on my treatment of this book because obviously I'm not some old dude in a 20 year relationship who can talk about raising kids or whatever. But book is on the TRANSITION aspect -- what you deal with when you go from being single and actively dating to a relationship. It's basically all the blunt and raw stuff that happens in those first few months and years.
To research the project I called about 20 of my friends who I consider to be both good with women as well as relationships, and interviewed them about their experiences. The experience of writing the book has also improved my own relationship very noticeably, as it's forced me to really examine what works in a relationship and what doesn't.
Funny enough, I feel like even guys who have no interest in relationships will find it valuable in terms of "picking up girls" -- because it grounds you in what you want from women and what you're screening for. My intuition is that it will also eventually go somewhat viral in the mainstream (in a few years if I accept one of our publishing offers), because it's really the first book I've ever seen FOR GUYS on the topic or relationships that doesn't suck, aside from David Deida.
I think it's funny because the mainstream will look at it and initally think "Awwwwww, see a pick up artist dude is now saying that relationships are the right thing to do -- it's proof of my belief system." Then they'll start reading it, and it will pretty much shock the heck out of them, but then still come to the same conclusion that a relationship is great thing to do. I wonder how they'll reconcile that?? :)
Anyway as of right now, I'm debating whether or not to continue using this blog for my future articles, or to use the new RSDN. All instructors will be using the new RSDN however there is a strong following on this site here, so I'll decide that next week.
