What does it mean? A playboy? Like a womanizer?

I was watching a video on YouTube where a British man said "he's a lover of ladies" but then goes on to say "he's a very nice guy" and now I'm confused.

If "lover of ladies" means a cheater then he won't be calling him a "very nice guy" but I've searched everywhere and didn't find anything to suggest what the meaning is.

So is it a player/cheater/ womanizer etc. If not, then what is it?

Yes, not necessarily a cheater though although he could also be that. He can still be nice. Being good with the ladies does not preclude him from being a good guy.

It could also mean that the ladies love him.

A "lover of ladies" takes an active interest in cultivating friendship with women; as opposed to a "lady killer", who is more the handsome rogue who's not above taking advantage of the fact that women find him very attractive.

Check the definition of "ladies' man" as well:

a man who shows a marked fondness for the company of women or is especially attentive to women

It could mean that the palmist has been over exercising his imagination while watching game of thrones.


Philogyny is fondness, love, or admiration towards women. Its antonym is misogyny. Philogyny is not to be confused with gynephilia, which is sexual attraction to women or femininity (and whose antonym is gynophobia).

One of the earliest examples of philogyny is the poet Sappho. Sappho (c. 630 – c. 570 BCE) was an Archaic Greek poet from the island of Lesbos. Sappho is known for her lyric poetry, written to be sung while accompanied by a lyre. In ancient times, Sappho was widely regarded as one of the greatest lyric poets and was given names such as the "Tenth Muse" and "The Poetess". Sappho was a prolific poet, probably composing around 10,000 lines. Her poetry was well-known and greatly admired through much of antiquity, and she was among the canon of Nine Lyric Poets most highly esteemed by scholars of Hellenistic Alexandria. Sappho's poetry is still considered extraordinary and her works continue to influence other writers. Beyond her poetry, she is well known as a symbol of love and desire between women, with the English words sapphic and lesbian being derived from her own name and the name of her home island respectively. Whilst her importance as a poet is confirmed from the earliest times, all interpretations of her work have been coloured and influenced by discussions of her sexuality. Most of Sappho's poetry is now lost, and what is extant has mostly survived in fragmentary form; two notable exceptions are the "Ode to Aphrodite" and the Tithonus poem.
