What's the big deal with people wanting to give firm handshakes?

Shook hands with a guy today, and I honestly thought he was trying to hurt me.

But seriously, just shake the hand firmly, you sissy.

Means you've shaken hands before and understand the rules of a handshake.

But seriously for real though, it's because of the way the other person takes it. Even if you don't mean to, a weak handshake is like telling the other person you're not really enthusiastic about it, whereas a strong hand shake tells them for sure you're grateful for whatever opportunity.

i believe an overly firm handshake indicates nervousness and/or a need to compensate for something. next time this happens, point it out and laugh at him.

Because I don't want to shake a floppy limp dick unless its after I piss.

Shook a guy's hand once, his shake was so limp the knuckles cracked in his hand.

Asking 'why' is silly though. Why do you look people in the eye while talking to them? Why do you shake hands in the first place? It doesn't necessarily make sense, but we do it anyway.

To be real though, it comes from ancient times when everyone had really long hair. When people met, you had no idea if you were talking to a man or a woman, so you had to show them somehow. Proving your strength in handshaking shows them that you're either a man or a lesbian.

I found this exact same video as soon as I saw the thread title

It just feels nice and strong. A limp one does feel lame and gross, and there's not really any reason to do that. Just have a bit of a squeeze to it, it isn't hard. I'm not gonna judge your character by it or anything but I can see how people could do that.

Now what do you do shaking a girl's hand because I've seriously never known

Quote by Unourrit01
there is a difference between a firm handshake and a guy trying to break your hand.


It only feels like that because your hand is too loose. If you had a good handshake, it would not hurt as much, weenie.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

nah my hand is fine. that was aimed at people complaining that anything more than a light hand grab is handbreaking

What is almost as bad as a weak handshake is when people try to get you to shake their fingers instead of interlocking the hands at the base of the thumb. Makes me want to hurl.

This one time before a tennis match I went to shake the hand of the guy I was playing and instead of our thumbs interlocking, his thumb just went under my whole hand. So basically I just crushed his entire hand... I think I ended up winning the match.

What does it say about a person who starts a statement with "but seriously for real though"?
