Saying Goodbye to friends

a guy that works with my husband and was my brothers best man kisses me on the cheek everytime we get together. I have had others do the same. I guess he feels comfortable enough to. Others from his work that I know more just say bye. As far as girls some I give hugs and some I just say bye to. I guess it depends on the person.

Hi there MFlower! It actually depends. Usually, if they're just my friends and I always see them from time to time, I just say bye. I only hug those people that I will be away from for a long period of time, like more than a month. But I always hug my relatives whenever we part. I always kiss my family.

I usually kiss on the cheek. But if it's a "goodbye for good" because he/she's leaving then a hug is required :) But if it's a see you around! Then a kiss on the cheek for the ladies and a slap on the shoulders for the guys :) Thanks for the comment on my discussion!

I am sorry you only have a few responses to this great important discussion, friends are very important to each and everyone of us in life and certainly for me, I value friendship, and when I say goodbye I always hug my friends, I am a very tactile person and I feel a hug whether they are male or female is a very important part of expressing your love for your friends and that you appreciate them. Just saying goodbye is just for an aquaintance or work colleague, if they are a true close friend then a hug is what I give them.
