The rules are strange ..
Men/Men always shake hands, in the pub, in the street, at work.. That bit is simple.
As I observe it, if not in a formal/work situation, many men hug hello, or at least share a manly, strong, a one-armed hug. As in: Hi, fellow man! Hi, bro!

Re: Do you do it?

For me it's a mixed bag, some people seem to prefer hugs.

Re: Do you do it?

We do the 3 kiss greeting when we are invited to Swiss homes.

Before I moved to London the only time I ever really kissed anyone on the cheek was at Hogmanay, although I had a Polish uncle who kissed you on both cheeks whilst clicking his heels together when answering the door

Re: Do you do it?

Oh absolutely 😊
Twice in Italy, thrice in Switzerland.
But I donít actually kiss the personís cheek. Itís more like a very slight cheek to cheek and you kiss the air.

So did the communists - "sozialistischer Bruderkuss" (brotherhood kiss), watching that gave you the creeps though, I wonder if it's still a thing? Or maybe naaaa, don't want to know.
