Front Range, dude...
Okay, so I work in a males only office, and dont have alot of female friends to ask, so I gotta ask you gals. My wife has a friend who always greets people with the double cheek kiss/half hug thing...you all know what I am talking about I hope.

I have no clue what to do when she does this. Last time she got me by half surprise, and as I always try to stand up when greeting anyone, much less a woman, I didnt have time to get up. She left lipstick on my cheeks... not such a bad thing :)

But I want to do this right...is it okay to kiss her on the cheeks back? Do I air kiss and faux hug? I guess saying "Hey!" and punching her in the arm is out...this is strictly based on protocal...no attempt at pick up/anything untoward is implied or intended...but I dont want o look like a dork either, knowwhatImean?

Help a Monkey out, willya? What would you expect if you were her and you gave someone the double smooch/faux hug combo?
