Hi,

When describing someone who pursues a large number of women, then what's the difference between lady-killer and womanizer?

Lady-killer sounds like, it's doesn't involve any sexual relationship unless womanizer, I bet.

So what do you think?

    I could be wrong, as the terms are not all that well defined, but when I hear them I interpret them as follows: A womanizer tries to get with every woman he meets, more or less successfully, while a lady-killer is quite attractive and smooth, and the ladies want to get with HIM.

    A lady-killer is attractive to women.
    A womaniser wishes he were.

    I suspect that we are picking out the differentiators here.
    Somewhere in the middle, there is not a great deal of difference.
