I guess the thing with Tom is he proved looks really aren't everything if you can develop your personality and confidence.
Not that convinced he did tbh. He more just found a way where he could leverage his way towards sleeping with more attractive women than his looks would suggest. EG go to the most remote town in FSU and running game specifically built to attract ONS, getting every fume of leverage he could to achieve this. There's even stuff he came up with where he'd test for girls from broken homes, and how that ups the possibilty of a 'result'. It's grim stuff.
Did he get any LTR's of value from all this? I highly doubt it, as he seemed to be so obsessed with being the 'bad boy'. It's sad, he could have landed himself a decent enough looking girl, found God, and worked on his life and had kids, raised a family etc. He was clearly highly intelligent, could've written books, worked on a more normie friendly frame. Could've written a biography of sort, from a more self-critical aspect, having disavowed Game, who knows.
Instead he ended up seemingly stuck on endless ego gratification loop, living in a van (no one can persuade me this is any kind of healthy lifestyle, especially if it's not in at least semi permanent spots), in what seems like an incredibly lonely & isolating existence.
Throw covid and all that's come with it in the mix, and it seems his lifestyle was all but becoming impossible to maintain. Then he gets attacked by these SJWs psychos, who get his books (and passive income) pulled, and what's he left with? Sitting in a van, drinking alone.
