Has anyone yet distinguished between "womaniser" and "ladies' man"?
To me, the first implies a certain disrespect of women, i.e. treating them solely as means to the end of one's sexual pleasure. The second doesn't. It suggests someone who definitely enjoys the company of women, and may be promiscuous, but does this without the the mercenary outlook of the womaniser.
I reckon Kirk, for the most part, is a ladies' man.
