PUA

An abbreviation for "pick-up artist," a man devoted to using a specific set of strategies in order to seduce ("pick up") women, and who perhaps instructs other men in how to do the same. You know how everyone tells you to just be yourself when talking to a girl? Well, all the guys in the PUA community will tell you to do the opposite.
