Christmas or Kiss-mas?

Question... when saying hello and/or goodbye to someone you used to date (but no longer do), how do you greet? A hug? A "fist bump"? A kiss? And if it's the latter, is the kiss on the cheek or lips?

(This is assuming, of course, that when you see each other you're still civil and don't want to go in all Mike Tyson-like for an ear or something.)

Disclaimer: The situation in question did not involve mistletoe, but did include lips. Maybe his lips were just dry and he was hoping for residual Chap Stick!?!?!

UPDATE: I should have indicated in my initial post that it was HE who went in for the lip kiss. I was fully expecting a hug and maybe a side-swipe cheek... which is why I'm asking all of you if this could be considered "normal," or if it's just another effed up incident in the love life of Always a Bridesmaid.

A hug at the most...I definitely don't kiss them on the cheek or the lips.

Hmmm ... I would say a hug. And maybe a kiss on the cheek from him, but I wouldn't give him one. But honestly? It would really depend on the guy, how long ago we dated and whether my husband was with me. Because if he was with me and I hugged that guy, there could be trouble a-brewing.

I would say hug and by hug I mean the awkward "I really don't want to hug but we used to sleep together so I might as well hug you" kind of hug.

Medicated - that's what I thought was legit too!

Kate - LOL. Love that you worked your hubby into the scenario of whether you hugged an ex-.

Allison - the REAL question is... was the hug as "ass-out" hug? (You know what I'm talking about.)
