Definition

A necessary designation on your social resume if you are a bachelor (or in some cases, maiden) in need of eligibility. Mothers and grandmothers alike will scan the pages of your submissions quickly to determine the presence of said term, and having found it will lean back with a satisfied smile.

To be sure, they are not seeking any underlying qualities such as well-travelled, cultured, cosmopolitan, open-minded. Au contraire, perhaps they just want to know with absolute certainty that you're educated, can speak english, earn money, and won't beat their son/daughter.

I am given to understand that US return can capture that succinctly. An brevity, as we all know, is the soul of wit.

Usage

Mother #1: That Ramya is a beautiful and well-spoken young woman, I am looking at her very seriously.
Mother #2: Oh ho! So are we. In fact we have already met them once or twice at functions and spoken.
Mother #1: Our son is US return you know?
Mother #2: Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!
