How to present a person
If you want to meet someone at a party or at a reception, you better find a mediator who is familiar with both of you, to have it presented. If such a person can not find work, then yourself. If someone starts to introduce myself to you, name in response to his name.
Remember that at the handshake the first hand is handed by the one to whom they are presented. Remember that you need to give your hand at the last moment, as going with an outstretched hand is impolite and ugly.
If you are presented to someone, then in response, say: "Very nice" or "Pleased to meet you." The person you are represented to is not obligated to answer you.
Remember that young people should be introduced first, and then older ones. The man should be the first to greet the woman, the people, the youngest in rank and position, the first to greet the elders.
Remember that if a woman enters the room, where already gathered a company, it should be presented first, and the men in this case have to wait for the woman to come over and greet them. And if the first woman leaves the company, she must say goodbye first.
When meeting and greeting, always be friendly, if you want to observe the measures of propriety.
Have more pleasant acquaintances and meetings, and be mutually polite!
