we never kiss when we meet...
we sometimes hug our close friends when we meet...
we always shake hands with the ppl we first meet...



Except on this forum, I always give out kisses....unusual in real life.

With my Anglo-saxon friends, we kiss lightly on the cheek

Kisses are defintely only acceptable between lovers  or  between parents and their children according to Chinese custom. "Do I n Rome As Roman Do", otherwise you are likely to get in hot water. I think shaking hands with a friendly smile will do when you meet Chinese friends.
