Building knights out of straw...

This is a cautionary reminder to women...and a great insight into a feminine tendency.
Women, perhaps more than men, see in anyone who interests them not so much what is actually there but rather a reflection of what they construct from the hints that have pleased them.  They build their imaginary shining knight out of little more than bits of straw.  Some of them it takes a miserable married lifetime to undeceive.
