In a new study, psychologists determined men tend to look at their partners in a more negative light after meeting a single, attractive woman.
On the other hand, women are likelier to work to strengthen their current relationships after meeting an available, attractive man. Men may not see their flirtations with an attractive woman as threatening to the relationship while women do, according to findings from a study in the July issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychologypublished by the American Psychological Association.
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. 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. In one study, 71 unsuspecting male participants were individually introduced to an attractive woman.
In contrast, 58 women were put in a similar situation. We do not subscribe to this. Using virtual reality scenarios in the last experiment, Beautiful older woman looking flirt NE 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. The researchers prompted half the male subjects in this experiment to visualize being approached by an attractive woman.
They were then instructed to write down a strategy to protect their relationship. These men were more likely to distance themselves from an attractive woman in the subsequent virtual reality scenarios. Lydon says women, on the other hand, don't need to be trained to withhold any reactions when approached by attractive men. 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.
