Their World and Culture / Kissing the hand (baise-main)
« on: November 10, 2011, 06:21:38 PM »
When a member of royalty (female) was introduced to a man (ex. a general or governor)  for the first time, would she extend her hand for the baise-main and then pull the hand away or would it be more appropriate to offer the hand after she had already made his acquintance or would just a nod of the head be sufficient?  Also, when presented to a woman for the first time, would the same rule apply?
