I am wondering if there's a process for the polite greeting kiss? I am inept at it resulting in constantly screwing it up, being snubbed or snubbing someone inadvertantly and creating general awkwardness.
While my father took pains to teach me how to handshake properly nobody taught me the hello kiss. It steps into the realm of business when meeting colleagues partners at functions etc and I imagine it is a faux par on the level of forgetting your boss' kids/partners names etc.
Has anybody thought about the methodology to getting it right? How to see it coming and respond appropriately, how to initiate the kiss when called for, how to know when it is appropriate etc?
Okay questions asked, thanks for reading.
