I was chatting with a friend and our topic revolved around these three roles.
Pick-up Artist. Player. Playboy.
I obviously didn't know the differences among the three so I asked and that's how it started.
A pick-up artist is someone who's skilled (or tries to be) at meeting random women, hoping to get lucky. A skilled one would be able to sweep a girl's feet off without realizing how corny some lines can be while a failure would lead to ignorance, a slap or two or worse, a hurt ego.
A playboy is pretty much one who goes all out to have fun (and probably uses pick-up lines while he's at it) with female companion(s), separately and secretively. For example, a dude with girlfriend who flirts and encourages another girl in one way or another when both girls do not know the existence of one another in his life. Something like that.
Players, on the other hand, make it known to the girl he's up for a one night stand (or two) and it's a mutual thing. The dude who told me all these admitted he's a player but history shows he's committed when he was in a relationship.
Did I get the definition right or did I mess his words up lol. It was a casual chat between us so don't take my words too seriously but opinions and comments are welcomed of course.
Regardless, don't be too careless with who you choose to be with. A clean cut dude may not be as loyal as you may think he is while a happening guy who's often seen with girls around him may not be the player everyone seems to assume ;)
This applies to girls as well.
