In a perfect world, all first dates would be an exciting, romantic, and totally stress-free experience — but in reality, going on a first date usually feels far from easy-breezy. Meeting someone new, especially in a romantic context, is always nerve-wracking, because it's pretty much impossible to know exactly what your date wants, likes, or expects.

But thanks to some new data, we now at least have a better idea of what women really want on a first date — and the one thing is probably not what you'd imagine. Of the women surveyed, 79 percent said they most care about feeling comfortable on a first date, even above feeling happy 35 percent and liked 27 percent. So what most women are realizing, is they can't tell if they feel attracted or drawn to a date if they don't feel comfortable first. If you're curious what else single women are looking for, here are seven turn-ons and turn-offs that might surprise you.

It might sound vain, but plenty of people like to have their looks complimented from time to time. The SIA survey found that, on a great first date, 94 percent of single women want their date to compliment their appearance — just make sure it's not creepy. Ugh, there's nothing worse than being on a date with someone who seems like they'd rather be alone with their cell phone instead of out with you.

For the single women surveyed by Match, the one turn-off on a first date was a date checking their phone regularly: only one in 10 women thought that was OK behavior, while one in four men found it acceptable. But on a great first date, it seems that most women prefer just a little bit of affection: 82 percent said they would want a hug, and 71 percent would want a kiss on the cheek from their date. It's important to be polite to everyone, not just your date well, duh.

The SIA survey found that 38 percent of women find it a turn-off if their date is rude to wait staff, so make sure to always say 'please' and 'thank you. Is there anything sexier than punctuality? Apparently not, because the women surveyed by Match agreed that a date arriving more than 15 minutes late is a bad look. Perhaps unsurprisingly, one in four men surveyed think showing up late is OK first date behavior — eyeroll.

Of course, there's no magic formula that will guarantee that all your first dates are smashing successes and there may plenty of these that you disagree with , but what really matters, above all, is your connection with the other person. But if you're able to feel comfortable, happy, and respected, then you're one step closer to making a connection that has long-term potential. By Laken Howard.
