If you’re going to live in Spain and want to integrate into the Spanish culture (highly recommended) you will find yourself kissing a lot of people! This is a bit strange for us restrained Brits, but the two kisses when you meet is standard between two women and a man and a woman, even if you are introduced to them for the first time. However, stick with the handshake if it’s two men. 

This can be a bit overwhelming when you first arrive, especially as the “rules of engagement” aren’t very clear. Justin Parks from Eye on Spain has written a great article on the subject, trying to pin down when, where and who to kiss. It’s funny and informative and is a great way to familiarise yourself with kissing in Spain. Thanks Justin!
