I have a paragraph and I found the expression "get him" is hard for me to understand. Can you help me. Thank!

A woman will not become more interested in you because you are a very busy guy, especially when you have the opportunity to keep flirting with her but decide that something else is more important than she is. A male’s lack of charm will make him lose more women in the long run than his imaginary busy schedule will get him

Here, "get" has the meaning "gain" or "acquire."

Now, that said, while the idea of "getting a woman" has been used in English for a long time to refer to finding a romantic partner, nowadays this usage would be ill-advised, as it gestures towards objectification.
