Full Definition:

A Bottom Feeder is a PUA who likes to go after women who are way below himself in terms of social value. Sometimes this is simply due to a lack of skill, but more often it is because a PUA is generally attracted to trashy women, or because he wants to protect his ego by only going after women he knows he can win over.

Many PUAs are known to go “dumpster diving” every now and then, but Bottom Feeder are men who habitually go after women whom society would generally consider to be unattractive. This can have a harmful effect on a woman’s dating life, because it can give her a false sense of high value and cause her to reject guys in her league so she can “hold out” for higher quality guys.

Generally, being a Bottom Feeder is a phase that a PUA grows out of, as he sets aside his ego and goes after higher caliber women and realizes his own true value.
