I read this sentence: "He went around and picked up a half-drunk woman at a bar"
"picked up a half-drunk woman" means He got this half-drunk woman (he made it!) - started a sexual or romantic relationship with this woman, even he doesn't know her before!
Am I right?
Thank you all for helping me!
hahaha, thanks Munch!!!!
And pick up a girl has the same meaning when I say:
"How to PICK UP a girl" = how to get a girl?
Yes, though get doesn't only imply a one-night stand or brief fling- it could be longer term too.
