Decline of the Handshake
    #798056 - 11/05/15 09:31 PM (1 year, 1 month ago)

People just don't shake like they used to. They've gotten limper. Anyone else notice this?

I never had a dad to teach me how to shake hands, but fuck man, there is nothing that says more about a person than a limp handshake. I figured that out on my own, it's weird other people don't.

Shaking a limp hand is almost gross.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

I dont know who your shaking hands with OP but all professional guys i meet shake like a man. 

You can tell alot about a man how he shakes a hand.  Keep it solid and keep eye contact or you come off as a lil bitch.

As a man, I prefer to shake hands over a fist bump or, God forbid, a high five.

My buddies and I do like a hand slide high five to fist bump as our "sup" and "goodbye" moves. It was the easiest "secret handshake" since we were all always really drunk and or stoned as teens, and it just stuck haha.

I get weird reactions when I subconsciously do the same handshake with strangers.

I personally prefer to go straight to making an attempt to dock.  It's really the only true way to get a feel for someone you just met

No, I do know people who seem to make some kinda competition out of it. I'm not one of them. Just a solid hand. If your hand feels like there are no fucking bones in it I'm gonna immediately label you a pussy.

Solid handshake, solid eye contact. You can't take a dude serious if he lacks both of these traits.

You'll be lucky if you get me to touch your hand.


Then again I don't meet new people, and thus never shake hands. I just work my shitty job and go to school and feel like a moron. The fact me and a girl from math class started hanging out and smoking is nothing short of a miracle.

I work for old people, if I shook their hand like a man its would hurt them and that's bad for business. otherwise I have a firm handshake but I don't go around squeezing peoples hand as hard as I can to show my strength like some people do.
