  • It depends if she's attractive or not.

    If she's not, a simple hello will do.

    If she's attractive, a simple hug will do.

  • I like the idea of a nice quick hug when meeting a date. A firm handshake might feel more like a formal greeting before a job interview!

  • I would start with a simple 'hello' and possibly a handshake. But I feel like hugging and a kiss on the cheek may overwhelm the other person.

  • I don't think I would hug them at first... maybe by the time we're saying goodbye if I like them.

    A hello or a handshake is enough.

    • Congratulations! The job is yours!

      (Probably better to just stick with talking rather than to handshake as well; I would be weirded out if a girl offered me a handshake upon meeting me)

  • Handshake with a giant smile :)

  • Definitely kiss on cheek twice (that's how we do in France). But not hug

  • It all depends on "What you look like" - If she is HOT, something HOT will follow a welcome smile with a hug. If she looks nice for ever lasting relationship, - a strategic move for "Slow but steady wins the race", but a welcome smile and a hug will be there.

  • Hug.

    Kiss at the end of the date if it goes well and feels right, although there's not always an opening for it.

    • Go with a hug. it's safe, shows confidence and it is a gentle touch which shows interest and that you are not uncomfortable. If he/she is uncomfortable hugging, then it's a very good indicator of how the date will go and how comfortable the person is with themselves. Basicly, if they aren't OK with a hug, run.

  • 1. Greet

    2. Quick Hug IF she comes forward and starts to move into position; otherwise keep things friendly and talkative

    No kissing on first date except possibly on the cheeks at the end (if things went well)

  • I'd go with hello since you don't know the person well enough to do anything else.

  • Id say hello with a handshake...some girls are VERY antsy about being physically touched by a guy they don't know, so a handshake is a way to break the physical barrier without being invasive. :)

  • My girlfriend now was from a blind date and we have been dating for a year. When I went to pick her up at first it was awkward, but then I saw a photo on her wall from a marathon and I am a runner that was the ice breaker the rest of the night was easy from three.

  • Handshake goes for me. It's my default form of greeting regardless of the situation.

    • Unfortunately yes :(. My game with women is terrible and some of the most obvious things aren't so obvious to me

  • I'm gonna go with the handshake.

    • A hand shake is overly formal for a date. It is better suited to doing business. It shows coldness and lack of confidence on a date.

  • Hello/hug.

    Never early enough to start KINO.
