    flirtatious man/ womanizer ?

    Hello,

    I'm looking for an adjective that would describe a man who's not serious about relationsihips with women and is likely to change partners too often. I don't like 'flirtatious' because it doesn't reflect what I'm trying to say. The adjective I'm looking for might be closest in meaning to 'womanizer', but the latter 1) is a noun 2) sounds slangy.
    I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
    Thank you.

    Not a teacher

    Why don't you write he is a Casanova?

    Does 'amorous' have the negative nuance? It sounds too nice to me.
