Pick up the pace - Tradução em português

Hi guys,
I'd like to know what is meaning of pick up the pace in this text.

Learning to tell how girls show interest is a very valuable skill for a man, because it will allow him to operate with greater assurance he’s making the right move at the right time, and will also allow him to pick up the pace when a woman signals she is ready.

Thanks

The English expression pick up place refers to a place where people - notably singles - go to have fun, drinks and flirt with each other. However, despite sounding a lot alike, they don't have any relation with each other. I just put it here to avoid any kind of misunderstanding.

The expression pick up the pace means to speed up something that is being done, making it faster. For instance:
We'll to pick up the pace of activity around here if we are to get the job done.

Therefore, in the context you mentioned,
(...)and will also allow him to pick up the pace when a woman signals she is ready. = and will also help him to move fast when a woman looks interested.
Cheers!

Complementando a resposta do colega Dodger:

To pick up the pace = Acelerar o passo / Acelerar as coisas / Ir mais rápido

Similarmente, "to pick up speed" equivale a "ganhar velocidade".

"The train began to pick up speed" = "O trem começou a adquirir velocidade".
