Archetype Sighting! Pining but Philandering Hero

When the hero really really wants the heroine, and intends to have her, yet while waiting for his chance, has sex with other women and later swears, “none of them meant anything”

EXAMPLES: Baby V by Tara Oakes and Making Her His by Lucy Leroux

Question for you Readers (please comment below): Under what circumstances do you “forgive” the hero for his womanizing ways? Or is there nothing to forgive?
