So how do you know when to shake hands and when are you supposed to hug? I am more of an introvert, so I like shaking hands. Occasionally I get into that awkward position where one person wants to shake hands and the other is a hugger. Then there is that awkward switching to hugging from a hand shake, and then back to a hug, and then leaning in for the handshake in the end but only partly grabbing the hand properly... Whew! I am so glad when that's over.
I really get into trouble with my wife's family - they are kissers. Now I know we all have "The Aunt". The one that kisses you on the cheek, and you can see that coming so it isn't too bad. But I always get caught going to the "wrong side" with my wife's family. Nose bumps, lip grazes, starts and stops, mid kiss corrections - it can get messy. So is there some rule that you kissers have that you can post here in your comment that people like me can rely on?!
The awkward handshake versus huggers must have some rule, too. How can you tell a hugger from a hand-shaker? I can see the pucker coming on the kissers, but huggers sometimes lean in similar to hand-shakers and I get fooled into the awkwardness of the mid hug correction.
After all is said and done I usually laugh at the confusion after everyone is gone. I like people. I hope the ones that get a lip graze or a nose bump or handshake when they thought they'd get a hug laugh as much as I do.
Happy selling and listing!
