Don't extend your hand because some people take it and pull you in. As clumsy as it may seem, wave from afar and jump right into the conversation as you're approaching them. By the time you get to them, the greeting phase is clearly over. It would be socially awkward to kiss your cheek after you're well into the conversation. The key is ending the greeting phase as quickly as you can and distance.
My perception: Wave from afar in a clumsy way, like you know that it is care less and do it confidently!
