The Player cannot advertise his preference for Player (def.): A male who is skilled at manipulating (“playing”) others, and especially at seducing women by pretending to care about them, when in reality they are only interested in sex.
While the Player is most likely to succeed with habitually promiscuous women, he is most anxious to demonstrate that he is capable of getting “good girls.” In the bad old days when Players frequently commented here at HUS, their sole concern was to dispel any notion that they were getting with “sluts,” despite considerable evidence to the contrary. The “good girls” he wants to count among his conquests look for signals of sincere attachment and a willingness to commit.
Why tie your life to someone who’s always going to put his needs before yours? Well, he could spend Saturday working on his resume so he can get out of his dead end job… He’s always in flirt-mode wherever you go, and he always leaves you wondering whether you’re the only woman in his life or whether he’s just sticking with you until he finds a different woman to charm.
