A lot of people ask if we’re pickup artists. We’re not.
We don’t discredit pickup artists, we don’t put down what they do. It’s just that pickup artists run game, we flag. The Flagging community could be seen more as a niche within the Pickup Artist community, like an accompaniment to picking up.
Flagging and Game concepts are similar, but different. Sure, I’ve hooked up quite a bit, who hasn’t? I understand some of their lingo from reading their books, but I don’t consider myself to be a pickup artist, I’m a Flagger.
Flagging is harder because it’s not about total numbers, it’s about hooking up with wo/men from different countries/cultures. Flaggers: pick up foreigners (usually abroad) and should be knowledgeable in world history, geography, and politics in order to lay claim to the exotic flags s/he has slept with.
I doubt it’s possible to be a pickup artist and a flagger at the same time. Either you’re more of a Pickup Artist that flags, or a Flagger that picks up. I predict more and more pickup artists will use their skills abroad, thus becoming less pickup artist and more flagger.
PUA is 100% geared towards men wishing to pick up women. Flagging is 100% geared towards men and women, and from all nationalities and backgrounds. Not everyone is a pickup artist, everyone is a Flagger.
