Pickup Artist

A pickup artist is a man who trains in the skills and art of finding, attracting, and seducing women.[citation needed] Such a man purportedly abides by a certain system deemed effective by that community in his attempts to seduce women.The use of pickup in this context, slang for making a casual acquaintance with a stranger in anticipation of sexual relations, dates from at least World War II, as attested by antiprostitution posters. The phrase was also popularized by the 1970 book How to Pick Up Girls by Eric Weber, Pick-Up Times, a short-lived 1970s magazine, and the 1987 semi-autobiographical romantic comedy The Pick-up Artist, written and directed by James Toback.
