    tweaked me on the cheek

    Hi,

    Is it natural to say ''She tweaked me on the cheek?'' (P.S. I know we can say ''She tweaked on my cheek.'')

    Thanks.

    Re: tweaked me on the cheek

    I've never heard "She tweaked on my cheek". Where is it used? It sounds as unnatural to me as "She kissed on my cheek".
    Yes, you can say "She tweaked me on the cheek".

    Re: tweaked me on the cheek

    "She tweaked my cheek" is possible but it has nothing to do with kissing. It would be like a little pinch (with the fingers). "She tweaked me on the cheek" is not natural and "She tweaked on my cheek" is simply incorrect.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
