View Full Version : Greeting People

January 8th, 2004, 06:49 PM
I'm bored and curious. A very bad combination that could turn voilent at any moment. But at the moment I am wondering, do you do anything to your friends when you greet them? For example hugs. I hug my friends when I meet them. Unless they're male, then I just kick em. Sounds mean, but it's what we do. Just wondering. Now if you excuse me, theres a caffeine drink with my name on it.

My best friend does that head nod thing and calls me "cracker" -- he's weird though

I pretty much just say "Hi, how are you" :-)

Us males..

What do you mean by "us males"??
You think I'm a chick or something?
If you do, you're wrong.
If not, reread first line.

Me and my pals like to make grunting noises and sound off with our drinking names! The Intangable Bulk!

I tip my bowler to them and do a small bow and say.

"Hello droogie (if there a girl devotchkas)"

If i greet my girlfriend i usually hug her and say

"hey love"

Sorry, but varies by mood and situation to quite a degree.

I hug my friends, male and female alike.

I hug.

sometimes I pounce....teehee...

If it's just an acquaintance, I'll do the head nod thing and say "'sup?".

We air kiss.

We are more sincere when we say goodbye. Then we hug and kiss on the cheek.

I mostly hug, though if I'm having a don't-touch-me-fool day, it's just a nice grip on the shoulders and some eye contact :) The boyfriend usually gets a big smile and a "Baby!" with a hug and kiss.

Same as Woody . . . hugs for all. I'm generally a pretty physical/tactile sort of fellow, as are the majority of my friends and family. Co-workers get the "'sup" upwards head jerk. Those I don't really know at all get the downward head tilt/nod, and a "Ma'am" or "Sir" tagged on it.

I'm kinda picky about who I hug. I have about 2 or 3 friends that I hug, the rest get the head nod thing.

January 9th, 2004, 11:44 AM
downward nod with a "Sir" or "Ma'am" for people i don't really know, upward tilt of the head (more like an upward jerk of the chin...) and something like "snoogans" or the like for friends*. hugs are generally reserved for special people in my life.

*just because i find jay and silent bob funny, and so do most of my friends.

I dunno what I do really. I guess I just mostly ignore everybody execpt when I'm in a good mood. Then I do the whole, "Hey man" thing.

For my girl, I mostly just give her a hug.

And my friends, usually nothing, except my best friends, which I say some pretty R-XXX rated stuff.

Most of the time I don't even get greeted with a hug, it's mostly just hitting eachother with belts and the like. They hurt. I remember I broke my necklace doing that.
