A man who is insecure with his ability to get women that he seeks out women who are "damaged goods" for whatever reason (usually because of men treating them bad). This man treats them well and tries to be their Prince Charming in the hopes that the woman will fall for him in spite of his attractiveness or other downfalls. He thinks this is the only way he can find love.
My friend Chris thinks he is ugly and that regular women won't be into him. So he looks for women who were abused, deserted, or cheated on. Then he treats them really well thinking that they'll fall for him. Chris is such a Captain Save a Ho.

The expression, "Captian Save a Ho," is one coined and used by sex-workers, especially strippers, to designate the man who often comes into the club and, although he buys dances and utilizes dancers' services, he is constantly trying to "save" them, although they never asked for such an intervention. His methods are always underhanded and suspicious, because he at once asks dancers, "Why are you in this business? You could so so much more. You could be somebody," while at the same time buying dance after dance and coming in night after night to enjoy their work. This type of customer is the least favorite amongst exotic dancers because his intrusive questions and holier-than-thou attitude is not at all welcomed by hard-working women who find it to be very condescending, patronizing, and hypocritical.
"Captain Save a Ho" walks in and buys a lap dance and while the dancer is grinding him and he is getting aroused and falling in love, he chooses to ignore the work atmosphere and professional boundaries that go unsaid in the clubs, he interrupts his dirty talking to offer salvation, never in any substantial form, but, rather, a condescending declaration that she could do so much better, assuming that she is a victim and not a strong woman who has chosen this career. The intelligent dancer knows this is just a front for the man to try to get her to go home with him to enjoy her services for free and to control her life.

A guy who will butt in and stop a man from beating a woman. This definition predates E-40's song, as I heard it directly from a Crip who used the term back in the 1980's to talk about how he used to stop dudes from beating on their wives and girlfriends if he thought the situation was getting way out of control, where someone would get killed.
That dude was like captain save a ho on the block, always interrupting anytime a man started slapping his girl around too much.
