With Halloween coming up, lady-killer probably makes you think of horror movies. It definitely sounds scary, and it’s pretty weird that Usher called his one-year-old son, Usher V, a lady-killer. What kind of baby would kill ladies?

Luckily for Usher V’s mom and women everywhere, lady-killers don’t actually kill ladies. They just charm them with their incredible good looks and amazing powers of seduction.
An extremely cute baby might be called a lady-killer. And little Usher V is definitely a cutie.

Like players, lady-killers often don’t treat women very well. They might cheat on them, lie to them, or break their hearts. But even the most ruthless lady-killers aren’t actually murderers.

The female version of a lady-killer is a man-eater. You might remember the definition of man-eater from our lesson on the movie Jennifer’s Body. A man-eater is a very attractive woman who takes advantage of men. So what happens when a man-eater and a lady-killer get together? We don’t know, but Man-eater vs. Lady-killer sounds like a cool title for a horror flick…

Are you a lady-killer or a man-eater? Do you know anyone else like that?

My admiration is not up enough to be lady-killer, Girls mostly love a guy with athletic body and looks manly than skinny boy like me, I’m not smart enough to win girls heart either. I have a friend who is really lady-killer, he knows how to get more attention from a girl, kinda a play boy he is but really lady-killer looks so much attractive and charming.

Lady-killer and Man-eater, it's gonna be awesome because they'll know how smart are they on cheating each other. It might stimulate the creativity.. :P

When one of them is losing, there will be no pain..

I think man-eater or lady-killer aren't one we try to be. They're heartbreakers from their birth, naturally.

I understand they're dangerous, but…......actually they're so attractive.

a lady-killer is one man who gets a lot of hearts´womens, take care about that for one night or a bit more, and after that he breaks it down.
It isn´t something cool, but that happens.

Hi there! I am not a lady-killer but my friends blieve that: 'I am'!!!! But in my opinion that is a great lie. Because I have no relationship by any girls or women except my mom and my sister and our closed reletives. So I think they want to tempt me whenever they want.Cool
