Coming from Indonesia, you use to two cheek kisses, on the right and left cheek, to greet friends and families..
Visiting Britain, you must adjust your automatic style and position for two cheek-kisses into.. one cheek-kiss. And you think it is easy? Not at all! After some awkward positions and moments between giving and waiting for the second kiss..you will eventually realize that you have to be happy with only one kiss.
Now, once you have mastered the one-kiss style and feel confident about it, go visit Netherland. There, instead of one or two cheek-kisses you have mastered, once again you have to adjust yourself. In this generous country, you will receive and gotta give THREE cheek-kisses. Right-left-right.. that is right. But don’t worry, you will certainly get use to it after several series of awkward moments and body styles between one, two and three cheek-kisses.
Isn’t life complicated enough without all that?
Little tips: For me, to avoid confusion, I’d rather waiting for the kiss to come instead of giving ones. It works perfectly and awkward-free 😀 Guarantee.
Enjoy your kisses!
