    kissing best friend on the lips.

    who here has friends (of the opposite sex), that they kiss on the lips as a hello? (no tongue)

    would you be ok with someone you are dating to do this?

    Nope, can't imagine that. I only ever kiss my boyfriend and my grandmother.

    When I was younger, I went through a phase where I was kissing everyone on the lips hello and goodbye. And then I wondered why my girlfriend always acted so jealous..... <scratching head>

    These days, I know a few women who kiss me hello on the lips, but it doesn't seem so normal, and I'm not as comfortable with it as I once was because it's so easy to blur a friend/romance line sometimes. Take it from someone who has slept with many of his female friends over the years. The best policy is a hug IMHO.

    I wrote Netherlands, because the guy I'm talking to is from there, and he just told me about this yesterday.
    I was pretty shocked and I found it a deal-breaker.

    Just wanted to see what other people thought about it, and if I was just overreacting.

    No, the closest thing I have to that is two of my female friends kiss each others cheeks in greeting.
    I honestly couldn't say I would be comfortable with my partner going around doing that so nonchalantly. Tell him/her how you feel about it.

    I did, and he thought i was overreacting.

    I guess it has to do with cultural differences. He said he wouldn't do it if he was with me, in a serious relationship. But I would still feel awkward whenever I was around his best friends, because I'd know they used to lip kiss all the time etc.

    He's cute and sweet and nice, but I guess that's over... can't look past that.

    and this is aside from the fact I think men and women can't really be friends...

    I'm not sure of the customs there and if this is widely accepted or not. A french girl that a buddy of mine dated always kissed everyone because she was raised in an environment where that wasn't out of the ordinary.

    Dating people from another cultural upbringing can be difficult due to little things like this, its best to get all the info and try to see things from all angles. Talk to him and let him know how you feel, if he doesn't understand and its still a deal breaker then move on.

    I've done that. Only with good friends and a quick peck type of kiss, nothing romantic. I think it's sweet.
