This guy recently started talking to me, and I cannot help but like him. Problem is, I know his past, hasn't been a good guy to other girls. He just used them up, he isn't a relationship person.
But he is treating me well (from what I can tell). Texts me every day, he always texts me first, and I can tell that he wants to keep talking but sometimes struggles with keeping the conversation going. He kissed me on the forehead the other day...talks about me with his friends (I don't know what he says). He wants to "hang out" sometime, but I'm worried it will turn only into a hook up.
I just want to know if I'm missing something. Like I said, he in the past was kind of a man-whore/a**hole. Is he being sweet just to reel me in, how do I know if it's genuine?

That depends on his reasons for sleeping around before. If he was genuinely using them, or if he was trying to play them, genuinely being a scumbag, then chances are, he's still the same ol' scumbag you know by reputation. I mean what are the chances that he suddenly sees the power of love since he met you, and has since turned over a new leaf, ready to settle down and be a good guy with YOU? Slim to none I imagine.
Don't get me wrong. You're probably a great girl. You might even be totally awesome. However, the point I am making is not about how great you are, but rather how a scumbag doesn't generally change his behavior . Not for a long time. Maybe not even ever. I'm telling you not to get your hopes up. I know this question was about giving you signs you can use to tell if he's a player or not, but frankly these signs don't exist. If there was a way to tell if he was genuine, players would fake that too.
I'm afraid you'll have to trust your gut on this one. Maybe use your head too. I wouldn't recommend trusting him. Sorry.0
