How do you greet the opposite sex?

When you are first introduced, what do you do?

Firm handshake (but not the business
bone crusher) for Brit chicks, kiss on
the cheek for the Froggies. (Unless it's
business, in which case: handshake again.)

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

Depends on the circles one is rotating in, I suppose? The sheer elegance social functions I attend, deem a polite, "Madam", bow, feet together, gently lift her hand, and a controlled dry lipped kiss to the back of said hand, without nostril breath, or sucking sounds.

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

It depends on what the lady wants I suppose, I don't have a standard greeting for women. Men are easy...proper handshake, none of this kissing business

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

Also depends on the woman, her age and under what circumstances we meet....

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

I always prefer to just say "Hello". I'm very private and hate people invading my space, so I don't do it to anyone else in case they feel the same.

What the hell's with all this kissing on the cheeks & hugging, bo**ocks anyway? It was all going on when people were arriving at this party I went to on Saturday..... same when I left, there was a bloody queue to get out 'coz they were all shaking hands again, hugging, kissing, shaking hands with his bloody dad, for gods sake it's not a bloody wedding, and even if it was, why the hell would I want to meet and kiss everyone and their dog?


Grrrrr

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

Chris - I'm surprised....I would have thought you'd go for Full S**ual Int**c**rse - you must be loosing your knack!!!

Anyway, for me its either a 'Hello' or a 'Hello' timed with a shake of the hand. Occasionally its a 'Hello - nice to meet you'

Handshake - firm but not too firm.

Kiss on the cheeks if in the appropriate country

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

Other, a slightly firm handshake for a formal greeting and kisses on both cheeks for an informal one.

By the way, people -mostly men- who don't squeeze my hand during a handshake give me a bad first impression. Am I grumpy or what?

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

But are they worse than bone-breaker handshakes?
You know the types who think that grating the bones of the others persons hands together means they're manly or confident or something?
Sometimes I think it'd be fun to just go "aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh. What the hell are you doing?" at them.

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

It depends on who it is really, but if it's someone I see everyday then just a "hello" and a smile

If it's someone I haven't seen for a while or a good friend, then a peck on the cheek

For work clients, definitely just a handshake....and I hate wet fish ones too - I'd rather someone didn't bother!

Re: How do you greet the opposite sex?

Depends also who you are with. I work with the japanese, so lots of bowing involved

normally a good strong hand shake and G'DAY does the job
