Shaking hands seems to be dying out apart from formal meetings/introductions such as a new colleague or job interviews.
Actually , it's more usual for men to hug men than for men to hug women friends. This would be interpreted as a bit "touchy feely" or as an overture leading to intimacy.
We're a funny lot really
I agree JW there is that whole handshake protocol thing going on. I dont think I have shaken a hand in years.
Zigzag hi....and JW.... that's great I so agree with you..

I think well adjusted men can and do hug where ever. They can and do live all over.
All over what?
The planet ninny. I thought for sure you were going to ask what bit the "where ever" was. {grin}

Well I guess I have to explain. The whatever bit varies by who is hugged. Was asked by a user who speaks english as a second language so in the interest of international communications I wanted to make that clear. {grin}

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Shaking hands carries a much higher risk of transmitting germs than a hug.

Plus, since it's a dying art amongst some, there are some pretty piss weak handshakers out there. A lot of woman can give plenty of men a run for their money in the 'decent handshake' department.

Sometimes you have to quickly double check you haven't grabbed their limp noodle by accident... honestly, it's liking shaking hands with a squid at times

I agree with you Lady P! Everyone needs hugs and we should be reminded of that occasionally. More hugs makes the world a better place!
