Dos Besos? (TWO KISSES)

Two kisses

When you meet someone in Spain, do you …

▪            a) Shake hands

▪            b) Give them two cheek kisses

▪            c) Give them three cheek kisses

▪            d) Hug them

▪            e) All of the above

The answer, as you might have guessed, is complicated. But it involves a combination of a and b. Never c, and most likely not d either (although there are exceptions)

Personal space in Spain’s culture is a relative term. Spanish people are very affectionate. After all, “dos besos” are a much more intimate greeting than a handshake. This affection also translates into a higher comfort with physical closeness.
