I have had this friend for a good many years; while I became a plain common person, he is quite the opposite: 32, very handsome, athletic (played football a lot), gets on easily with people, graduated from a famous place, he is smart and professionally very successful. The proverbial winner... Well, we were taking about girls the other day and he confided to me that "no woman can resist him, single or otherwise" if he really wants to have her. Of course I was bothered by this bragging (although he DOES get a lot of beauties) and mentioned married girls that I did not think would fall for his advances; he answered with a sly smile that he was sure they would think about him as they cuddled with their boyfriends or husbands. I was shocked because even discounting the bragging he DID seem to believe that. This left me saddened, because on thinking about it I feel that many beautiful people may also be like that. Now for the question: is it really so, beauty/success are irresistible? And even if that may be so, is a girl being unfaithful if she DOES remeber such a person while with her loved one?

Sorry, but yes, beauty and success are irresistable. He has what the women want.
A woman would feel proud, happy, even honored to be with your friend. Personality does factor in as a tie-breaker, but only as a tie-breaker, and even that isn't much since your friend no doubt knows how to act around desirable women. If the woman is beautiful, he will treat her well, open the door for her, etc.
By the way, when your friend mentioned these married women, was he mentioning married women he believed he would be able to seduce, or women that he actually had bedded?
