Rogue

Is generally a term of honour, or at least of tenderness. He is a happy rogue, — the rogue of my heart, and the like.

Sometimes indeed it is employed rather angrily, by a deserted damsel: as, for instance, half sobbing and crying, “I am sure he has been a rogue to me”: which is, in other words, “I have been a fool to myself.”
