Both men and women greet each other by kissing on the cheek. In very formal encounters they shake hands. People address each other with the colloquial form vos (singular “you,” equivalent to tu in other Spanish speaking countries). To convey social distance, people employ the more formal usted. Social physical distance in everyday encounters is much closer than in the United States. Argentines might touch each other when talking and might feel awkward when North Americans reject physical proximity and contact. Women and men gaze at each other, and it is still quite common that men use piropos (flirtateous remarks) when a woman walks by.
