When you meet someone from Europe, think they're going for the double kiss, but they're just in for the single and somehow you kiss on the lips. Feeling so awkward right now.

"I just kissed her. I didn't even wait!"




Guys,in Europe its not unusual for men to kiss mens cheeks in greeting. Which could make the lip kiss more awkward.


Thats an unusual first impression

The preferred first impression I tend to give...

Same here in latin america. I have a hard time deciphering whether I should give them a kiss on the cheek or a hand shake

Read up on the business etiquette protocol of your host country. Good tips on dos and don'ts. In Latin America, a handshake is still universally accepted in formal or international business settings. Once there is a level of familiarity, you can be more nuanced. All else fails, follow the lead of your local host/guide.

Kiss on the lips... wow!!! Are we in 1800? Make America great again, red neck

Yeah, it's super confusing. In Holland and maybe Switzerland, it's three kisses. In South Africa, they often purposefully go for the lips.

You shouldve given the ol Donald J Trump handshake and grab em by the pussy
