    girl hunting

    NAMPA
    Literally 'soft-type boys' I understand.
    I understand those are the boys who find
    pleasure in chasing girls most of the time.
    The verb form NAMPA-SURU is 'go girl hunting',
    'talk to girls on the street into dating',
    something like that.
    Are there any similar slang words in English?
    Thank you.

    Re: girl hunting

    We tend not to think of those guys as 'soft'. We use hunting metaphors, like 'on the prowl'.

    Thank you very much. Could we say "He is on the prowl for a girl"?
