For family, yes, especially those in mexico, where it is very common

otherwise, no, never

I'm personally a very non-touchy person and I usually don't give hugs/kisses or give any personal contact to anyone unless their really close to me. It takes a lot from me to even hug my mom and family members you can probably see how well I do with anyone else...

I kiss a couple close people on the cheek. I would also do it with someone who has previously kissed me on both cheeks and I can expect that they will do it again.

Otherwise, since it isn't very common in my experiences, I wouldn't want to make anyone uncomfortable.

I prefer hugs anyway, I love hugs!

I haven't done it before, well except for GF and stuff like that .I'd imagine if I had been born into a different culture that my answer may be different.

Kissing is okay as a greeting, as long as its just a normal kiss.

I think it's a little odd o.o Unless it's part of their culture. Then I'd be the one feeling uncomfortable.

I only kiss female family members on the cheek, sometimes. And being in high school, I think some guys would be pissed if I kissed their girl, even if only on the cheek lol.

My wife is French, so it traditional; if you don't do it to someone you know, it is borderline rude/insulting (like, ewww your breath stinks, keep away). You shake hands in France only to strangers or folks who will never become your friends. Here in New York, it's quite rare, though, when it's done, you have to reciprocate, so not to appear rude; it's usually twice (both) cheeks in northern France and thrice in southern France (Provence).

Its in my culture to give 2/3 air kisses (That is a kiss on either cheek) when greeting family and friends/acquaintances. They don't have to be close friends either, it might even be when you are meeting them for the second time. I only greet ppl from my own community like this though, naturally my other friends would find it odd and even creepy even though to me it means nothing more past saying hello.

But I've always been a hugger, so they have to put up with that
