U.K. ladies’ man: a man who seeks out the company of women, especially a genteel young man who flatters older women, often for selfish reasons ( dated informal disapproving ).
A guy who is a girl's 'friend'. A shoulder to cry on, a culinary expert to discuss baby aubergines and a buddy to go shopping with. He'll offer you cup of Ovaltine, a sponge finger, a viewing of Top Gun and cry when Goose dies.
Beware the poodle - those were merely crocodile tears. When you wake up in his bed alone and violated you will be the one crying.
