Superman and Wonder Woman’s First Kiss: Singles Weigh In

To further explore the significance of Superman and Wonder Woman’s first kiss moment, we asked over 1,000 Match.com singles how the pivotal first kiss plays a role in relationships. Dishing on everything from their first kiss anxieties to the most smoochable superhero, our singles provide a complete roadmap to achieving the perfect first kiss. Results include:

  • Which superheroes would singles most like to kiss? Single ladies found Superman the most kissable hero with a majority (76.2%) choosing to lock lips with the Man of Steel.
  • If you were a superhero, where would you want to experience your first kiss? For both sexes, the most ideal superhero location for a first kiss would be while flying by the air (M: 42.4%, F: 42.9%), while teleporting through time zones ranked the worst (M: 3.4%, F: 6.3%)
  • Kissing on a first date—what’s appropriate? 40.8% of men think that a quick kiss is appropriate on a first date. However, gentleman may want to approach this smooth move with caution as only 31.9% of ladies felt a quick kiss was appropriate and 29.5% didn’t feel any type of kiss was appropriate and would just prefer a hug and handshake. Not appropriate: Only 6.5% of females and 8.7% of males found French kissing on a first date appropriate.
  • Biggest first kissing offense? Bad breath (males 66.6%, females 47.3%) ranked as singles number one first kiss turnoff, followed by a kiss that was too sloppy (males 13.6%, females 27.3%).
  • What aspect of the first kiss gives singles the most anxiety? For a majority of men it’s when to make the first move (73.1%) while women are most anxious over if it will be a good kiss (39.2%) and if it will send the wrong signals (28.7%).
  • Bad kisser? No problem: Even if the first kiss was awful, most singles say that if the date went well, they would go out for a second try. 81.7% of women and 91% of men were happy to take a second chance. Based on this finding, it’s not surprising that a majority of women and men also didn’t feel that a bad first kiss correlates with being bad in bed. Men were more adamant about this distinction, with 80% saying there wasn’t correlation, as opposed to just 65.3% of women.

    I thought the proper couple realtionship would be between WonderWoman and The Batman, the comics and cartoons, logic as well says soo Wonder Woman would fall on both feet for the moody Dark Knight

      Nah, Batman wouldn’t go for it, he’s so sexually repressed. He’s traded a normal life of romance for a life of law enforcement. He’s devoted himself totally to his ideals. Ironically though, a total lack of interest in non-crime-fighting hasn’t stopped him from being a pretty decent father-figure to Robin. Good for you, kid.

      Superman, by contrast, won’t sacrifice a normal life for justice, and in fact he works for justice in both identities incessantly. He’s got interest in romance, unlike Batman, and he’s both a fabulous kisser and, I’m sure, a passionate lover to any he deems worthy of his affection. The princess could do a lot worse than the Man of Steel, and a lot better than Batman.

    Our first kiss…December 23, 2005. 3 weeks after Steve asked me out (yes…I didn’t feel ready to kiss him until 3 weeks later). On a couch in my living room, staring at each other and it got really quiet. I just said, “You can kiss me now.” And he did. It was amazing. And I still get butterflies to this day.
