I've always been a handshakes kind of guy with pretty much everybody outside of family or very close friends. I don't mind a hug, but my instinct is always to go for a handshake, which can result in some finagling when somebody I've only met a handful of times goes for a hug and I have to swiftly readjust to avoid making them feel awkward.
