@MichiganGirl24:  I think this should be a PSA for anyone. The majority of floppy rubbish handshakes I’ve had in the last year or so have come from men.

ugh my FI has a terrible handshake. He’s left handed, so his right handed handshakes are similar to shaking a crab claw. I’ve been trying to get him to fix it for years! lol

THANK YOU.

My pet peeve is when men assume that as a woman I can’t properly shake their hand and I get the half grip/wet fish from them when I go in for a full handshake.

One of my pals used to offer hand in a way that someone would have to hold it. I made her practice a real handshake wjth me lol.

Good PSA.  If you shake a guy’s hand and he says “Wow! That’s a nice handshake you’ve got there!”, you’re doing it right.

Sometimes I equate a limp handshake to “I don’t really care whatever, I’m bored already”, like you’re not really invested in whatever it is we’re doing.

@theEguarantee:  I’m left handed so I totally get it. My handshake isn’t bad, like not shaking a dead fish, but it could be firmer. I’m not a righty so it takes some effort lol. 

I think another thing people should know is DON’T SHAKE WITH WET HANDS. There is nothing more gross than when you reach to shake someone’s hand, and it’s wet. Or worse, SWEATY. Ughhh just thinking about it is grossing me out.
