Ask for Social Security Number, verify identity, cross check with multiple online databases for confidence...... and then give them a fruit basket! Welcome!

Pineapples, Limes, Durians and Starfruit. Exotic!

Stop. Look them dead in the eye. Hold that gaze for what seems an eternity. Look at them toe to head. Look them dead in the eye again. Hold that gaze. and then start whatever conversation she was having with me all over again :D hahahahaain't tthat right @soccerchick4eva? ♥ ahahaha
omg hhaha im never gunna forget how you did that hahahhaha
Hahahahha ♥ I know, and even if I wanted to forget it, you wouldn't let me :P
I usually shake their hand if I'm being introduced, but if we just happen to meet, it depends on the situation. Sometimes I'm in a large group and I get to know someone in the group without ever formally introducing myself, or "meeting" or anything. Other times, I'll just say hey and introduce myself and we'll shake hands.
Now that I'm in the US I give a handshake if it's either man or woman, but in my home country (Spain), if you're meeting someone from the opposite sex it is two kisses (or one depending on the region) on the cheek; one in each cheek. Women also greet like this between each other. Men greet other men with a handshake.
If it's a guy it's usually a firm handshake. If its a girl its usually an awkward wave except if she is friends of a good friend, which in that case, it's a hug.
It depends. I usually shake their hand but sometimes if they go in for a hug I won't curve them and reject it lol
Depends if I'm at work or school I'll smile and say hello, small talk. But if I'm being introduced, I'll give them a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
I usually go up and hug them with a kiss on the cheek. Um that's how I do it. Not sure about other people lol
I would not touch anyone who I met for the first time..However, I might give a little wave or just greet them hi..
Awkward wave it is! Something like you are present and able to grab attention of the guest.
Well my culture we would hug it (Brazilian) so I would do that with a kiss on the cheek but I live in the usa so I give them a firm handshake
oh, so that's why this brazilian dude who was my new roommate sort of wanted to go in for a hug when he first introduced himself... Something I'm totally not comfortable with, so it was a very awkward moment...
I'll smile. I don't usually just offer my hand unless they do. Unless it's a formal meeting.
*Scratches my head* Gay! Sorry, I mean hey! ...>____>
Just say hey how are you
Two kisses, if I'm being introduced.
really, are you european?
Yes, South European. :-P
when I first met europeans and they would just go in for the kiss it kind of scared me a bit. now I like the cheek kiss with an added hug after getting to know some people (:
Hehe. Even in Europe there are differences. In Scandinavia it's totally not normal to kiss. When I met Danish people and kissed they were so confused. But in South Europe we are really emotional and we really like human contact. :-)
it's supposed to be really good for your mental health actually. people who touch each other more are suposedly happier.
I shake hands but sometimes high five too.
Lick their eyeballs.
i just shake their hand and introduce myself
walk away from them
then you're not meeting them, silly. :P
thats the idea call me anti social
I just say hello.
A wet kiss
