00:00:00,570 --> 00:00:02,673
There's something I've been wanting to make a video

2
00:00:02,708 --> 00:00:05,303
about for a while, and that's hugging.

3
00:00:05,354 --> 00:00:09,681
It's mostly because I think it must be weird for non-Americans;

4
00:00:09,716 --> 00:00:12,330
sometimes it's even weird for me.

5
00:00:12,365 --> 00:00:15,365
If you've spent much time in the US,

6
00:00:15,400 --> 00:00:20,270
you might have noticed that Americans hug each other a lot.

7
00:00:20,305 --> 00:00:24,225
We do it in saying hello to someone and in saying goodbye.

8
00:00:24,260 --> 00:00:28,129
You don't do this with someone you've never met when meeting,

9
00:00:28,164 --> 00:00:31,629
in that case you probably do a handshake.

10
00:00:34,453 --> 00:00:36,413
Hey Hilah, this is my boyfriend David.

11
00:00:36,448 --> 00:00:38,720
- Hi David.  - Hey. - I'm Hilah.
- Nice to meet you.  - Nice to meet...

12
00:00:38,755 --> 00:00:41,762
Also, you don't hug in business settings.

13
00:00:41,797 --> 00:00:44,622
Hello, Ms. Smith. I'm Tom Kelley.

14
00:00:44,657 --> 00:00:45,653
Thanks so much for coming in.

15
00:00:45,688 --> 00:00:47,562
It's my pleasure. Thanks so much for meeting with me.

16
00:00:47,597 --> 00:00:50,847
In business settings, you shake hands when meeting

17
00:00:50,882 --> 00:00:54,661
or leaving someone, unless it's more causal,

18
00:00:54,696 --> 00:00:57,883
like someone you see every day at your office.

19
00:00:57,918 --> 00:01:01,554
Then you can just say "hello" or "goodbye".

20
00:01:01,589 --> 00:01:03,752
Morning Tom.

21
00:01:03,787 --> 00:01:04,760
Hey, morning, Rach.

22
00:01:04,795 --> 00:01:06,798
But when it's a friend,

23
00:01:06,833 --> 00:01:09,808
you hug when you meet up or part ways with them.

24
00:01:13,029 --> 00:01:14,895
- Hey!       - How are you feeling?

25
00:01:14,930 --> 00:01:16,278
- Long time no see.    - Nice to see ya.

26
00:01:16,313 --> 00:01:18,282
- Hi.   - Hey.    - How are you?

27
00:01:18,487 --> 00:01:20,000
- Good. How are you?
- Good. Thanks for having us.

28
00:01:20,035 --> 00:01:23,233
- Hey Rick!   - Hi. Good to see ya.
- You too.

29
00:01:25,930 --> 00:01:27,849
- Bye HaQuyen.        - Bye Rachel.

30
00:01:27,971 --> 00:01:28,944
It was great to see you.

31
00:01:28,979 --> 00:01:30,129
It's always good to see you.

32
00:01:30,164 --> 00:01:33,402
This can happen even when you've just met someone.

33
00:01:33,437 --> 00:01:36,063
Let's say you're at a small party, and

34
00:01:36,098 --> 00:01:38,604
you meet someone for the first time.

35
00:01:38,639 --> 00:01:40,971
Rachel, this is my friend Jacob.

36
00:01:41,006 --> 00:01:41,795
Hi Jacob.

37
00:01:41,830 --> 00:01:42,788
Hi, nice to meet you.

38
00:01:42,823 --> 00:01:44,259
Nice to meet you. Thanks for having me.

39
00:01:44,294 --> 00:01:46,334
At the end of the night, when you say goodbye,

40
00:01:46,369 --> 00:01:48,402
you might hug that person.

41
00:01:48,437 --> 00:01:50,155
Bye Jacob.

42
00:01:50,190 --> 00:01:51,478
- Nice to meet you.

43
00:01:51,513 --> 00:01:52,742
- Nice to meet you!

44
00:01:52,777 --> 00:01:57,821
Men and women alike hug as a greeting and as a goodbye.

45
00:01:57,856 --> 00:02:02,135
Though sometimes men do something more of a slap than a hug.

46
00:02:02,170 --> 00:02:06,090
- Alright, man. Talk to you soon.
- See ya. Bye.

47
00:02:07,002 --> 00:02:08,970
It can get awkward though.

48
00:02:09,005 --> 00:02:11,717
Some people are less comfortable with hugging,

49
00:02:11,752 --> 00:02:15,387
and might offer you a hand right as you offer a hug.

50
00:02:15,422 --> 00:02:19,400
In these cases, you just have to figure out what to do.

51
00:02:19,435 --> 00:02:22,378
If you're not sure what to do, you can try

52
00:02:22,413 --> 00:02:24,684
to wait for the other person to initiate.

53
00:02:24,719 --> 00:02:27,447
- Hey.           - Oh...hi.
-Hi.

54
00:02:27,482 --> 00:02:31,066
So, in America, we hug when greeting someone,

55
00:02:31,101 --> 00:02:33,088
and when saying goodbye.
