The Latino greeting involves a kiss on the cheek and at times even a hug. It doesn't matter if we've never met before, if someone introduces us to someone else, it is cultural to greet them with a kiss. However, since most of us are Americanized, we stop ourselves and go for the handshake. It's definitely something I am accustomed to, and I always find myself holding back quickly extending my hand before going for a friendly peck. I don't want non-Latinos to think I'm a pervert!
