I agree, it's too weird and intimate.



I rarely ever even hug people in greeting.

Yeah and then it ends up making you look weird. I hate that.


I said I wasn't a hugger to this girl and she seemed offended, haha.

Well not everyone is that open. You can greet others without physical contact....

Never, unless it is my husband. Friends get a hug, family gets hugs, and even then I won't hug them unless they want a hug. Gotta love the personal space bubble

Kissing as a greeting is "IN"

forget handshakes or hello just greet them with a kiss first

Nah, I don't like the sound of that! Just wave your hands and say Hello. : )

Well in my culture it's not really kissing in the first place, though some people do it (elder ones...).
You just "touch" the right cheek of someone close (family, relatives and close friends) with your left cheek and vice-versa. So it goes left-right.
Boys around 18+ touch their foreheads in the same scheme to show respect to each other (not really the forehead, goes towards the side of the head).

If neither one, or simply one doesnt really like to be touched or whatever we do the "air-greeting". As it's name says, you greet the air =)... nah its close to the other person but you don't touch him.

This is only used if the people you are greeting are really close to you.
Also if we greet our elders, he automatically stretches his hand, we grab his hand, let our chin and afterwards our forehead touch it. And if it's appropriate we do the "cheek-to-cheek" part.

I don't. I just don't feel comfortable about it. I prefer a hug as a greeting.

No. I prefer a simple "hello," or maybe a hug if it's my grandma or something. I really don't people touching me at all. =_=
