Are you a hugger, kisser or shaker?
When you greet someone you know, do you hug them, give them a kiss, or shake their hand?
Well I'm not a shaker... lmao... I'm a hugger & a kisser!
I've been known to hug my bosses & even give them a peck on the cheek! ~ note, I've pretty much only had female bosses, so no threat of flirting or sexual harassment involved. I'm just a huggy kissy person.
I hug friends hello & good-bye all the time. I hug & kiss the kids & hubby hello & good-bye.
It depends who I'm greeting. Generally I'm a shaker or a waver (a quick wave of the hand).
In everyday situations I generally just wave my hand once and say 'hi' or just give a polite nod. In professional situations I shake their hand.
It all depends upon who the person is.. I hug my friends and family and acquaintances.
. but when it comes to people I am not much friendly with, a wave, a verbal greeting, or a handshake is fine..
I hug and kiss all children because I love children.
When I greet a friend or an acquaintance, I will usually shake their hand if there is any physical contact. I have given hugs and kisses only to my wife in the past. When I greet anyone who is my age or older in Thailand, I will initiate a "wai" with them. If a person initiates a "wai" with me, I will return it by holding my hands together in the form of prayer and moving them over the top of my nose.
I am definitely not a shaker. I don't always know what to do when a hand is offered to me, often using the wrong hand to shake! I am a hugger and depending on the closeness of our relationship, a kisser!
I say hello. I'm not a hugger, kisser or shaker. If someone else reaches out for a hug or a handshake I won't ignore them or back away. But, it's not something I initiate.
None of these - if it's a person I know and see quite often, I greet them with a smile and just start talking to them. If it's someone in business, I prefer to shake hands. The only people I hug are those from other countries, where it is their norm and not to do so would cause upset, offence or concern.
Hug usually. Shakes are for business partners from my perspective and a little rude if you consider someone your friend. While kisses are too formal and are reserved for your partner.
It depends on how well i know him/her and on the some other conditions.
If the other one is my friend then i will hug if that person is just known one than i will shake hand and when that person is my love than i will do all the things first shake hand then hug and then kiss.The other condition if the other person is my mom or my brother and sister than i will be a kisser or hugger.so you can say i am having the quality of all 3 but you know i due i always got chance to be a shaker..as i don't have enough friends n all.
I am a stand back and hope to do none of those things type of person. I will watch what the other person's body language implies will happen and go with it, this usually means I end up in a hug.
Having a European family means I got a lot of hugs and kisses from complete strangers growing up, and this has made me quite uncomfortable with the whole greeting thing. I will avoid if I can.

Are you a 'hugger'?Do you hug goodbye, when you meet a friend or when someone needs a big warm one? Do you give someone a hug and a peck out of affection?
