If you can look at a person of the opposite sex and not lust after her, you're in good shape.

If you notice that your admiration is shifting into lust, interrupt your thought process, perhaps turn your gaze away, and pray, "Father, that's my sister in Christ. I don't know her, and I don't know what kind of trouble she has, but I know she has trouble in her life. Bless her with whatever she needs." In other words, try to view her as a complete, full-fledged person - a human being full of complexities and contradictions and weaknesses and needs and thoughts and accomplishments - rather than as just an attractive body.

And then go about your business.
