Don't be so hard on yourself, K, it's not just your problem. It's the American culture as a whole. Men aren't supposed to kiss. I never could figure this out because my maternal grandfather was from Russia, where men do kiss. I grew up seeing graybeards greet each other with a kiss, it was a show of friendship and respect. I never gave it a second thought and never could understand the fuss.

Uhura


I can still remember being told around age 9 by my mother that I was "too old" to kiss my dad good night and feeling sad and hurt until I learned later that Men Do Not Kiss Each Other (wink, wink.)
