Greetings

 
A warm and hearty handshake is an appropriate greeting for both men and women.
It is also a popular among friends to kiss on alternating cheeks three times when greeting.
A common phrase is Hoe gaat het? (How are you?) or Alles goed? (Is everything all right?)
The use of given names generally is reserved for close friends and relatives, except among youth.
Otherwise, the Dutch address others by their titles and family names.
When answering the telephone, both the caller and the receiver identify themselves before staring a conversation, It is rude not to do so.
