And women usually give the kind of kiss where they just touch cheeks and blow kisses in the air. Guys, OTH, kiss you right on the cheek, but they act all macho about it. If you are not a good acquaintance, they might do the kind of the kiss where one half of their lips touch your cheek, and the other half is kissing the air. That one looks funny
