Quick Definition: A PUA that has attained mainstream media recognition and receives celebrity-like treatment and social status.
With the popularity of the seduction community increasing in 2005 with Neil Strauss’s book The Game and Vh1’s subsequent The Pick Up Artist airing on national television, the PUA community is no longer a niche market anymore. Many more people know about it. The rise of dating coaches is also prevalent today.
Despite the fact that the hardcore learning and community guys will likely remain off of the radar, the founding dating coaches have become mainstream and are recognized by guys (and girls) when they go out in public.
