Pull out a j, take a few and give it to the guy on your left. Slowly point around the room starting with him and ending at you and whisper "circle of trust" in his ear, and then whisper "pass it on". Then continue with your presentation.

I don’t understand how some men doing well in their consulting jobs seem socially inept particularly when it comes to dating/relationships.

I've become really jaded about consulting.

I'm in a awkward spot. I barely do anything at work while I'm very well paid (most likely overpaid) and our agency is happy with me and my partner. Until here everything's a dream.

The agency is one of the most famous ones, the client one of the biggest in the world, but small briefs and small budgets. Also, our CD and CCO are kind people, but not good enough to look up to them
