I think a hug is appropriate. That way, you can check to see if he/she is carrying a gun or knife on their body.

When I first meet someone I give them a quick pinch on the ass.. good way to break the ice! lol really though normally just a hug or a hand shake.

This may or may not have been said in jest....But clueless guys need to take heed and make note of this right here!


Like I said in the next post down....It actually happened...We had chatted for two weeks, agreed she would open the door in a negligee and BOW Bucka WowWow....it was on!

That was her fantasy!

If you like what you see when you meet them, a short hug is fine. If you don't like them a handshake will do. I think a kiss is a bit much for a first time meeting, but if the meeting goes extremely well, then a kiss on the cheek to end the meeting is the way to go.

I usually hug before and after. I have never kissed at the conclusion of a first meet, even the men that I ended up seeing.

I believe it 100%. I haven't met a woman yet who doesn't like what you described in your first post done to her. Some of these guys seriously need to copy and paste some of these tips into an email for them to read and put into practice!


That being said, I would NOT recommend doing what I did unless she had indicated wanting that first....that was a first meet after all!
That would be a good way to wind up in jail if she wasn't expecting that.

I've hugged on a first meet a time or two, but it was usually initiated by him. I'm more of a smile and say hi kinda gal.

Op, I think it's cute how you say you get all panicked, I get like that too sometimes, lol.. those first few seconds can be a little unnerving.

For me there's no set formula . Sometimes a handshake seems appropriate , other times a hug feels like just the right thing !
I try to stay sensitive to the other person's body language, and comfort level , and proceed accordingly !

Since it is new for me to be back in the "dating scene", I would appreciate some input.

I met a guy two weeks ago for dinner. When I walked up to the restaurant, he was waiting outside. We shook hands then went inside. After being seated, we talked for about 30 minutes before even opening up the menus. When we were leaving the restaurant, outside he told me that we would talk again and hugged me. We spoke a few more minutes and he hugged me again, then we parted.

I haven't heard from him since then, so I'm gathering that he isn't interested in pursuing anything further, which I'm okay with, but I thought the evening went well. Not sure, any opinions?

I either walk up and passionately kiss them or throw peanuts at them...mostly throw peanuts!
