This. I think eye contact is way more important than the handshake. If he's scared to look me in the eye, it is significantly worse than a limp-wrist handshake

For some subconscious reason, when I get a weak handshake, I squeeze the hell out of the guy's hands. Maybe it is my mind teaching them a lesson. It just signifies a girly man to me, and I want nothing to do with that
You still in school? Most guys in their early 20s try to give too strong of a handshake, like it makes them a badass.

Once you grow out of it, you'll learn most "men" give a firm handshake, but not a strong one.

I always squeeze the frick out of his hand. Shook hands with a little kid(maybe 18) on campus yesterday and felt his hand crunch when I did


Ohh so you're that guy.

I get the impression that a man is overcompensating for something or a hardass if he tries to break my hand.

No, because my BIL is one of the biggest rednecks i've ever met, and he does the fancy handshakes too.


Who gets to set the standard on how hard is too hard. Some people just grew up giving a hard handshake and to a nancy boy, it might feel like too much.

Googled gay handshake, and besides a bunch of crotch shots, I got this

re: How important is a handshake?


Anyone ever come across the weak girly handshake by someone high above your pay grade. I met a CEO a few months ago of a certain southeastern energy utility and got one of those dead fish handshakes... Confused the frick out of me...

I try to go for medium with men, but I usually try to modulate the strength to match what I receive from women. What's the TD call when shaking hands with the opposite sex?

29, but I dont crank down on someone's hand, just give a firm, IMO, handshake

Didn't really do it that hard, he just had zero hand muscle and it just crunched

What i hate is the overly long handshake. At some point you are just holding hands with a guy.

I always do a firm shake, but hate the try to crush your hand shake many people do (especially my Marine friends). It's like okay. I get you are strong, now let go of my hand.

This is why my generation daps people off instead.

I have shaken hands with men who have the firm manly handshake and it turns out their work ethic and job performance doesn't amount to shite.

Basically a good handshake means just that. You shake hands well, but nothing else.

There is such a thing as being too rough while conducting a handshake. If you're one of these guys, you suck. I'll squeeze your hand, but I'm not out to hurt you. Plus I have nothing to prove to you.

In short, go frick yourself.

They taught us how to perform a proper handshake in my first month of business school. For me, I don't totally judge someone off their handshake but it definitely throws me off if their hand is limp.

nothing wrong with a firm hand shake but there is no need to go for the iron death grip.

a weak handshake seems insincere to me.

re: How important is a handshake?


I feel like handshakes are starting to be over rated. I feel that a good and firm handshake is great but I no longer judge off of that. I notice eye contact more than anything. On the flip side though I do notice when people over squeeze on a handshake like you are stating and I immediately feel like they have a superiority complex. I always give a good solid handshake with full eye contact and state my first and last name. I have noticed from doing that people show more respect however I have also noticed that in business the handshake is not everything anymore sadly it seems to be becoming a lost art.

Nothing is worse than when a woman shakes your hand by basically just putting her hand in yours. It's really awkward and I just let go asap. I've had a guy do that a time or two and I just assumed they were a homosexual.
