    emotionally unstable?

    Suppose there is a man, who doesn't take his relationships seriously. He may say "I love you" to a woman after he said the same thing to another in the previous day. He could easily "fall in love" with any good women he encounters. Women won't have a sense of security with this type of men. I wonder, is "emotionally unstable" the right word/phrase here to describe the man? I'm looking forward to your suggestions. Thank you very much!

    Re: emotionally unstable?

    I would say the term "emotionally unstable" refers more to unrational behavior.

    A guy who says one thing to a woman then turns around and says the same to another is by my definition a weasel. He might br emotionally unstable but doesn't have to be. He might be a sweet talker and a player who likes to take advantage of women by playing on their feelings.
    There are a few words I could use to describe this behavior:
    fickle, flaky,fast and loose, deceptive.

    Call him a heart breaker, a butterfly or just catch-of-the-day.
