    They want someone to come and "rescue" them, hence "knight". I doubt many girls want this, though

    I s'pose it's the embodiment of all of the good qualities that a guy can have. Charm, chivalry, loyalty etc.

    Or maybe that's a cross between Prince Charming and.. I'm not sure anymore.

    Well it's more of a subconscious thing; the girl being the damsel in distress and the knight rescuing the girl from all her woes...

    Probably quite a bit stronger, bolder and braver than Prince Charming though.
