In this chapter, the woman described is sexually immoral. She is trying to have an affair on her husband, who is away on a trip. 

Here's how you identify her: 

Proverbs 7:10 -- She is dressed seductively and has a sly nature

Proverbs 7:11 -- She is brash and rebellious, never content to stay at home to take care of her responsibilities 

Proverbs 7:12 -- She is on the corners of streets, asking men to lay with her

Proverbs 7:15 -- She will say that you are special, that you are the one she was looking for all along

Proverbs 7:16 -- Her bed will have beautiful blankets, with colorful Egyptian linen

Proverbs 7:21 -- She will flatter and compliment you in order to lure you into her bed

This chapter concludes with a warning. It says that anyone going to see her is like an ox being led to slaughter. (Proverbs 7:22) It is like a deer caught in a trap, about to be killed. (Proverbs 7:23) Do not fall into her wicked schemes...she will ruin you. (Proverbs 7:26) Her house will lead you to the grave and her bed will lead you to death. (Proverbs 7:27)
