I always thought it was a European thing. I haven't seen too many Americans doing it in the region I live in... and by "haven't seen too many" I mean none. Only on television have I actually seen this happen.

I've never been a fan of the kissing. I' usually prefer to go right into the reach around. Nothing says Hello like a good ol' reach around!

In my family the kiss on the cheek is the most common greeting for one circumstance -- a female (usually older like an aunt or something) greeting a (usually younger) male. No male to male, female to female, and a lot of times the guys in my family never kiss back. It's just the older women kissing the younger guys.

Though I can't really speak for the rest of America, in my opinion this situation (or the complete opposite of young men kissing older ladies) seems to be the most common scenario when a kiss is used as greeting

Only females kiss on the cheek in my family. Its always either female to female or female to male. The only time males kiss other males is if it's to a much younger male. Otherwise, they just do manly handshakes .

Family and friends, sure. It also depends on whether they want to. I hug people more often than kiss them.

A greeting I use for Family and close friends

No one does that in my country so it's very foreign to me. I prefer the good old handshake. I like how sometimes you can tell a thing or two about a person by their handshake.

Family all the time on the cheek and friends of the opposite sex who are like sisters to me. Some of my old girlfriends did it too but not all of them.

I finally started watching Bleach, and what I learned is that apparently, it's perfectly fine to greet someone with a roundhouse kick to the face lol.

I really like Ichigo's dad, he gets beaten up by all his children though.

Haha yeah seeing a roundhouse kick as a greeting is a first for me, but okay the Kurosaki family really is a unique one! Yeah his children does not seem to have so much respect for him, but okay he really is the epitome of WTFness. But just you wait, later on he'll show his true colors and he'll kick ass! He's freaking awesome.
