GuyRule #13.0: Different Good-byes
"Different Good-byes depend on how good a friend you are with the Guy." -D

"Okay, here you go." -G

"Level One: Acquaintance." -D

"That's a shake-hand good-bye,." -G

"Hey buddy, nice knowin' you, good luck, have a nice life." -D

"That's right" -G

"Okay, Level Two: Co-worker-friend." -D

"That's an arm around him, grab him, do a little hug, a little round the shoulder hug." -G

"Maybe a pat on the shoulder, a little squeeze maybe..." -D

"...Behind the neck, sure." -G

"Level Three: Good-buddy-party-friend." -D

"That's the real quick hug, and quick slap on the back. Okay..." -G

"Maybe a grunt or two.

Level four, lifelong buddy, you're leaving for years." -D

"Oh yeah. That's a full blown hug like you would your wife." –G

"Full blown hug, maybe even eye contact." –D

"That's a definite NO. The eye contact's gonna be a tough one. That's a major lovin thing. That's reserved for the wife." –G

"You think?" –D

"Yes, that would be a complete breach of etiquette! Sure. That goes to the brother if anyone. The eye contact goes to the brother." –G

"All right, forget it." –D
