An overrated self-help movement started by frustrated 30 year old virgins turned amateur con-men that attempts to systematically change meek nerds into false-confident assholes.
"Why is that guy who usually wears videogame t-shirts and unkempt hygiene suddenly wearing douchey sunglasses indoors with a bad haircut and trying to insult every girl in here?"

PUA is short for pick-up artistry. A live-action role playing game in which geeky guys role-play being "suave sophisticated players".

The rules of the game involve constantly approaching strange women that one meets at bars, clubs, shopping malls, etc and repeating some canned lingo or "pick up line", usually resulting in rejection. While occasionally it does result in the participant getting laid, this is usually the result of trial and error, or simply spending hours every week trolling bars and nightclubs, and rarely if ever the result of the "game itself".

Contrary to belief though, the object of the game isn't even strictly about "getting laid", but rather proving to other players that one is not afraid of rejection. Which why some guys continue to persist in it even after 100s of rejections instead of just finding a hobby where they can meet women natually.
PUA- I spend the last weekend leveling up my nightgame status, but now my daygame is underleveled. I think I'll hit up the shopping mall and approach a few 7/10s today and practice my negs.

A program I downloaded was a PUA. It had an annoying toolbar in it and changed my browser's web search settings and home page.
