There is a double standard at play here.
When a man is linked to multiple women over the course of a few years, he’s “an eligible bachelor” and “a playboy.”

For us right now in this moment, that dude is Franklin Saint.
Before I started writing this, I had no idea the actress who plays Franklin Saint’s mother is British-American.
