    Kissing on both cheeks as a greeting to someone you know is quite normal in the Salsa scene in Scotland. It's certainly not the norm in the Scottish society in general though, and I found it very strange and awkward at first.

    You know you are a salsa dancer when you start going around kissing people and don't think twice about it...

    You Scots are not among the most cuddly and effusive people are you? :lol: Me, I don't need salsa as a reason--I'm Italian, and I kiss everyone! :lol:

    You are right! :lol: Ever heard of "the Glasgow kiss"? No? That's what we call a head butt!

    I used to hate kissing... but this is the norm in our Salsa scene too... a fellow dancer (my former instructor), when he moved from London to Bucharest, found it weird that whenever we meet (sometimes 3-4 times a day) we kiss... now he's used to it!

    Social kissing is great. It took me a while to get used to, though.

    You Scottish women can be headstrong--but I understand that there's a deep well of passion awaiting the guy who's man enough to discover it!

    I actually prefer a kiss on the cheek to shaking hands. You never know what people were last touching before they are shaking your hand, but you can bet that their lips were in cleaner places!

    So, does that mean you're going to let your actions speak for you? :shock: :wink:
