|1.||Recovering Pick Up Artist|
Recovering PUA ("Pick Up Artist") - N. A person who, after studying mass-marketed 'Pick Up Techniques' and putting them into practise, discovers that he is not any happier, nor self-satisfied, nor socially-calibrated than he was before - only now he cannot communicate with people except in 'PUA jargon', and has alienated all his non-PUAfriends.
"Have you noticed the change in Larry? I'm not embarrassed to be seem with him anymore!"
"Yeah, he's a Recovering Pick Up Artist; he's got it mostly under control now. If he starts ignoring us to hit on every girl around, or if he starts dehumanizing women, we're supposed to call his Sponsor."
