Men can learn to resist temptation when trained to think that flirting with an attractive woman could destroy their relationship, said lead author John E. Researchers conducted seven laboratory experiments using heterosexual men and women to see how college-aged men and women in serious relationships react when another attractive person enters the mix.
Researchers found that women protect their relationship more when an attractive man enters the picture but men look more negatively at their partner after they've met an available, attractive woman. On the other hand, women are likelier to work to strengthen their current relationships after meeting an available, attractive man. Using virtual reality scenarios in the last experiment, the researchers wanted to see if 40 men could learn not to flirt when mingling with attractive women if they formed a plan or strategy beforehand.
In contrast, 58 women were put in a similar situation. In one study, 71 unsuspecting male participants were individually introduced to an attractive woman.

The success rate of such strategies may not be percent but it is likely to be ificantly higher than if the man was not made aware of the specific consequences of his actions.
