from great expectations

Estella has been Pip's love for nearly his entire life, in his mind. He cannot see the good in Biddy because he is so enamoured by Estella and his hope that she would, eventually, be his. He thinks they have a "thing," and he keeps coming back for more of her treatment. Ultimately, he may realize that Biddy is a good woman and a good fit for his needs, but as long as Estella gives him even the hint of a hope, he will not give up his desire for her.
