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. :D

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!

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

It depends on what the lady wants I suppose, I don't have a standard greeting for women.
So, you don't do the PEEP, PEEP, ALRIGHT DARLIN' thing then :lol:

Can I use my
"Hello, does this rag smell of chloroform to you?" gag again in this thread?
:cheese: :lol: :cheese: :lol: :cheese: You can use it Bazza, I haven't heard it before :lol:

No - I hate wet fish handshakes too.

At least the other guy is putting some effort into the handshake, whereas a wet fish (didn't know the term :D) indicates that the person giving it is too bored to greet you properly and they are doing it only because they have to and I take that as a subliminal insult. On the other hand some people from both sexes cannot control their strength when squeezing something so they crush your hand without trying to "tell" you something.

It's polite to offer your hand for a GENTLE handshake. Kisses on the cheek only if you are related or know the people well. A nod or bow is used depending on nationalities being greeted.

Business it has to be a firm hand shake I hate wet fish hand shakes it shows a lack of confidence not a good sign in Business :(

I also hate the bone crunching big d!ck hand shake :mad:

In social circles a gentle hand shake and perhaps a peck on the cheek depending on how well I know the person :D

Chris - I'm surprised....I would have thought you'd go for Full S**ual Int**c**rse :D :D :D - you must be loosing your knack!!!
What me!! - someone has been telling tales.....;)

I do tend to greet them first Kev - and look into their eyes - and see what they smell like- then I know if I can go for the full s**ual int**c**rse.:D

P.S Women give off a certain smell when sexually aroused by the person they are with - or speaking with......(Ah the happy days of youth when I used this to its full advantage ).
