View Full Version : When shaking hands: Cup of Protection or the Flat Out and Personal Palm Kiss?

I shook the hand of a fellow today, and he gave me that cold and superficial, default "Cup of Protection" (or "hand rimmer") thing.

(COP = No palm contact.)

I for one prefer the "Flat Out & Personal Palm Kiss" (or "hand hugger") myself. :up:

(FOPPK = Total palm contact.)

In my experience (your own personal hand shaking experience may vary), guys that are stand off-ish, insecure, or generally uncertain, often exercise the COP version.

Dudes I know, relatively kind humans, or folks that have an instant likin' to me (or visa versa) always whip out the sometimes squengy (and or smushy) but always appreciated personal & friendly FOPPK method.

:up:

I like to tickle their palm with my middle finger while shaking their hand, it throws them off guard.

*giggle*

I'm just kidding... this thread just reminds me of all those silly "handshaking" jokes from elementary school... you know, the "Hi, I'm a carpenter" and you use theur hand like a hammer or a saw; or the "Hi, I'm a fisherman" and go into the handshake all limp; or the "Hi, I'm a heart surgeon" and squeeze their hand rhythmically... anyway, I digress...

Didn't you read the fine print?

"Absolutely no playing of precussion instruments without a permit."

Can't you see this thread is tryin' to take a dirt nap?

For stink palms, full contact is preferred.

Ugh, I hate those "cupped hand" handshakes. And the weak, limp perfunctory handshakes too! What's the matter? Can't shake hands like a MAN, you girlie-man? Come on!

I don't believe I've ever encountered a cupped hand handshake. It sounds wierd.

I hate those people who start the handshake about 4 feet away. They raise their hand/arm up to around shoulder height and swing into the shake. Pisses me off as they look like a Tony Robbins/Tony Little graduate!

As for the original question.. I don't have a preference as long as they

A: don't try to act like the incredible hulk and crush my hand.
B: don't hold on & not let go

Here's a handshake for dummies link:

Blame the four-foot away handshake on Michael Keaton. See "My Life" for details. ;)

I knew a martial arts master who would always give a limp handshake. He would hold his hand out, but not apply any pressure whatsoever. I would always start to give him a regular handshake, and then immediately back off when I realized he wasn't applying any pressure, so we both ended up with limp handshakes. I had trained with him, so I knew he was capable of snapping my arm if he wanted to. I think it was all about deception. He wasn't a very likeable or trustworthy guy.

I too, don't like a 'limp' handshake when I shake a mans hand. It should be 'firm' and not overly aggressive.

Now with woman, I like the 'fingers only' type of handshake. If they come at me with a 'mans' handshake, they are either a transvestite or a business woman who has no time for me.

I had a guy give me the cupped handshake. To screw with him (I really didn't care what he thought of me), I brought my left hand into the action, and gave him the two-handed squeeze shake.

...and then did you try to dry hump him? 'Cause that can be funny.

Eh, I'm concerned about sweaty palms...in both directions...so I don't usually full-out grab a hand, you know?

If they come at me with a 'mans' handshake, they are either a transvestite or a business woman who has no time for me.-ohbfrank- My father always told me that just because I'm a woman, I shouldn't have some limp-wristed handshake... don't hurt the person, but he always respected a firm handshake more. As a matter of fact, a couple of times, after meeting friends of mine for the second time, he remembered them because of their handshake (a good one).
