Ladies: Do you have an aversion to the "dead fish" handshake?
A lot of men feel that the way in which another man shakes his hand says a lot about him. A firm handshake with just one or two “shakes” is preferable and a man with a weak or “dead fish” handshake must be a wuss or effeminate.
Now, I find this whole occupation with handshakes silly but I notice that, when shaking a woman’s hand, this concept doesn’t come into play. I’ve never gotten a firm handshake from a man. It’s always soft and mostly fingers, if that makes any sense.
I’m curious as to what women think of this. Seems to me like some women might be offended if a man thinks she’s to fragile and feminine to get a firm handshake.
A handshake is such a small thing, but a lot of the men I know put a lot of meaning behind it. Why do you think this is?
