    Its neither. The Brazilians kiss on both cheeks via their Portuguese heritage. They do this all the time in my Samba dance groups. To be honest with you, I don't really like it. Its very unhygienic, even if it is just an air kiss.

    Seen people in quite a few cultures do this. We do it sometimes in my family, though just the women.

    i hate that shit... especially when you meeting up with strangers for the first time and everyone is kissing on the cheek, you be like "i dont know this woman i dont want to kiss her or her kiss me" but then you dont want to seem rude

    it's a Latin thing...you don't see too many Anglos doing it unless its in their heritage. I know for me, its weird not to do it, if anything the idea of shaking hands with women was something I had to get accustomed to since I was brought up to give a peck on the cheek.

    Do you do both cheeks though? Only women in my fam do that. Men will do the peck usually.

    I think it's just a European thing. My family does it, I am accustomed to doing it, it's just about social and cultural conditioning. I don't see the big deal about it.

    I've seen it people from other cultures do it..I don't do it and they rightfully don't do it to me because they respect the fact that it's not part of my culture.
