The British


I was just wondering whether the following is true: do British people like to stroke (the proper noun for this is effleurage from the point I see it) their colleagues, mates - people they chat to (not the ones in love with them)?

I have a british colleague doing this and actually this is just cute.

I guess the British do it more than the Finns, but to be honest it may also be more of a Latin thing, since the colleague you are referring to is half British, half Ecuadorian:)

It's been extremely popular back in 80s and 90s (when I got a change to perceive it), especially in my home city of about 300,000 people, which are warmer due to less effort to be so, particularly when almost all are united psyhologically.
