The Dreamgirl Theme for My Novel

THE LAST
DREAMGIRL
 
For every man there‚Äôs a girl who grips his imagination and his heart as no other girl ever did or will.  She may be in her teens or a mature woman.  He responds to her as a boy to a girl.  Whether she comes early in his life or late, there is a throne in his subconscious that she takes possession of, without trying, often without wanting to. The image he forms of her reigns there in perpetuity, even if she has left his life, or this life.  Or shed the image.  Or proved unworthy of it.  The image endures.  Her enchantment never fades or fails, and he is never immune to it.  She may not be for him the last wife or paramour, but she is the last dreamgirl. 
      The paragraph above will be the epigraph of my novel The Last Dreamgirl. It will appear by itself on the page before the title page in the book and also on the back cover. It announces one of the themes of the book -- that men have dreamgirls. Some men, at least. Maybe most men. What do you think of the paragraph and of the idea? True? False? True of some? Many? (Aside: Is there a corollary for women? A dream man, perhaps?) I'd like your opinion and comments. Thanks.
