kiss on the School run as if you had not seen each other for month (yet only saw each other the night before) are attention seekers? I never understood why people do it. It just feels way over the top and somehow a bit of show to others?

Don't see the problem with it. All because you don't greet people that way, no reason others shouldn't.

Kiss who? What?

No, but I do think that people who watch other people kiss and judge them for it, then choose to post about it on MN are a bit odd tbh.

Who would they be trying to seek attention from?

I couldn’t give a monkeys. But I do think without realising people can come across as unapproachable and cliquey, especially to new parents.

Fair enough, I did see them chat the night before. I actually don’t have a problem with either of them as they are quite nice but I just find this quite odd and over the top!

Why is it over the top? You sound jealous op.

I kiss my friends. It's how we say hi. That's it really.

I see, I’m not a very cuddly person (apart from when it come to my kids) hence I don’t really get why people do it during school run but I guess it’s a bit narrow minded on my part!

It doesn't sound attention seeking, unless they're playing kiss chase.

I haven't been outside the school gates since 2011 but I have never seen this so maybe it's a new thing?

Wow. I have never in my life kissed anyone except romantic partners in greeting. It's nice that people are so openly affectionate. I'd be most perturbed if someone did it to me though!

When you say kissing each other, you mean like, kind of a hug kiss on the cheek type thing right? Not a full on snog at the gates

MemoryOfSleep · 03/10/2018 14:26

That should say kissed anyone in greeting except romantic partners. Sorry, the word order is a bit ambiguous.

Only good friends. Not like Susan who last only been for one play date and not since because her kid unravelled all the toilet rolls.

Or Shirley who always double parks me and blocks me in.

No snogging. Just a quick hug or a peck on the cheek.

Oh good God the thought of kissing people in social situations makes me anxious. Least tactile person on earth. I don't even do hugs. So it's very weird to me. But I'm a weirdo

Sorry it’s s kiss on the cheek and not lips if anyone was confused Smile I think it’s most of the time instigated by one half and the other one just going ahead with it not to be rudeWink
I’ve had a friend who literally after a month of meeting for the first time wanted to hug and kiss and I might get beaten up for this but felt it was more of a show.
She wasn’t on maternity leave for long and just moved into the area and felt she wanted to speed the process of making friends a bit.
Sorry to all those who this isn’t applicable!!
