Lately, I have been noticing a difference in the way I have been greeting people.
By nature I am a hugger...
With my dear friends I tend to give them a hug!
With girlfriends I of course just lean in and hug them.
With the opposite sex I lean into their side shoulder, (side hug)
It has been a bit of an uncomfortable practice in the last decade!
So lately with finding myself feeling awkward when meeting new people
Or greeting someone from the opposite sex;.
I have chosen to extend my hand and offer a handshake.
I have looked on at some very inappropriate hugs in the last decade.
I realize things are changing and affection has an opened end to it!
We as women need to be aware with what our hugs demonstrate.
Better to be reserved and use caution then to give a hug we are not
Comfortable with and can be seen as an open door.
Years ago I would not even considered writing a post like this!
But I was even thinking of the scripture that tells us to stay away from
Even the appearance of evil.
Wrong touch and contact can cause problems.
Also, I just wanted to mention that, make sure you give a
Good handshake that says hello and not a cold fish or limp hand!
How do you greet your friends?
And how do you greet a new person?
So you like older men to hug your daughters and granddaughters?
