Dos Besos? (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.
