    What's the best way to greet a woman on a first date?

    Just wondering this when I go on dates with women I've met online, I'm never quite sure how to greet them when I first meet them.

    A simple smile and 'Hello'?
    A polite kiss on the cheek?


    Im never quite sure which is best and I end up feeling awkward in case I've done the wrong thing, which as this is the critical 'First impression' moment, is not the best time to feel awkward!!

    Thanks in advance

    This along with eye contact. Any physical contact would be a bit much, unless you were in communication for a decent amount of time, and developed some fondness for one another.

    I always give a hug. I just went on a blind date today and we hugged when we first saw each other. Depends on the person though.

    Just do what you genuinely feel. Nothing too touchy feely though. Unless, as concetina said, you have already built up some sort of rapport. Maybe a hug or a kiss at the end of the date if things go well. Too much physical contact upon first meeting gives the impression of being grabby.

    Say, "Hi, I'm so-and-so, nice to meet you." Smile, extend hand to escort, not shake. Very confident, very masculine.

    Yeah, I agree 100% this is the best approach when first meeting.

    If you go with ready2heal's advice I don't think you can lose. It shows interest without assuming anything regarding comfort.

    i usually just give a handshake the first meeting. by the second meeting i normally just smile and give a little wave but i'll give him a hug when we part ways. depends on the individual really.

    I like the polite hug-kiss-on-the-cheek. less formal than a handshake, and allows me a split second to test how comfortable will touching be between us.
