Philanderer is someone who makes love insincerely, someone who engages in passing love affairs.

NB I looked it up in dictionaries but there was no thing such as "pass love affair" in non of them. Does it mean ongoing ? or de facto?

Passing in this context is an adjective meaning transient and not long-lasting.
