A man whore who goes around telling girls how beautiful and amazing and he says they are the only one. But in reality he is trying to screw every girl he sees, telling them all the same stories. Occasionally he gets caught when he tries this on girls that are friends or family. Another urban word that fits in the gardening section such as hoe, tool and ratchet.
That fools a trowel. He be troweling on all the hoes and ratchet bitches. My nigga be troweling threw the whole club tonight. He gonna find himself a hoe tonight!
