Pumping, gripping, squeezing.... The handshake. Dead fish, bone crusher, pumping the arm so hard that you think your shoulder will come out of joint. When I clasp hands with someone for the first time I squeeze just hard enough to press our palms together, fingers firm but not tight. Sometimes one pump, down then up and hold it for the span of a second while holding eye contact then release. There's also a little move I do if I'm interested in a guy that I'm keeping to myself. How much attention do you pay to the kind of handshake you get? Does it indicate anything about the person to you? What kind of handshake do you have?
