According to the MISC on the BodyBuilding website: A white knight is defined as a male that treats woman as goddesses and does nothing but shower then in compliments on how wonderful and beautiful and special they are. Maybe be used as a noun or a verb.
Brah, if you keep white knighting every girl you meet, you'll never get as action.

A gaming term used to describe a male gamer who, in a desperate attempt to get himself laid, will attempt to woo or impress any female gamer he comes across online by being overly defensive of her and giving her special attention, such as playing as a healing class and only healing her.
Why do those white knights try so hard to impress the girls they run into online? Do they actually think they're going to get laid?

Bouncer Mcgregory: Thats not what I heard, Sally said you were bothering her, I'm kicking your punk ass out the club

Jack: WAIT! Are you even gonna hear me out?! Fuck I'm not going anywhere without my lawyer!

Bouncer Mcgregory: No whatever Sally says counts, we need the hot girls here to attract more male customers. ( yes I did see Sally push you and spill her drink on your shirt, but I'm have to kick you out because I want to get into her panties tonight, sorry Jack your a good man, but its everyman for himself.. )

Mary: Ian was such a creep today, he shook my hand the wrong way

Bob: Woah, yea he is such a creep, that guy is some big ass loser. Your right. ( hoping to earn some points to get with Mary )

Bob: ( muahahaha, I'm such a white knight in shining armor! I am so bedding Mary )

A person with low self esteem who combats this with a unwavering need to aid others who may or may not need it. They usually have very isolated personal lives as they are very judgmental of others, surrounding themselves only with those who feed their desire to help and feel as a savior. Most commonly sighted in young men in regards to women, this is only a lesser form as it is usually only temporary, fading with life experience. More serious cases occur in correlation with chronic self esteem problems where the person needs to maintain a high view of themselves through self righteous acts of kindness. These people enjoy surrounding themselves with troubled individuals, who form a farm which is harvested for what they use as pseudo self esteem.
Don't give the white knight reason to flaunt his "good deeds".
