    Anybody come across it? Your take on it? Is it basically another version of "I know that you know we're both gay (and butch)"?

    Was the recipient of such a handshake today on meeting - me androgynous/soft butch, her butch.

    Can someone explain this to a gay guy like me?
    :wink:

    < is wondering about a "gay handshake" ^^
     
  5. i think its a soft handshake rather than a firm one.
    most people i know who are gay have had a soft handshake but it can also depend on how confident you are i think.

    I guess that's where I'm going wrong, I need to soften my handshake!!


    I shake people's hands all day long at work but don't think I have yet come across the lesbian handshake....

    There was a running 'joke' in the military that the 'gay/I want to screw you' handshake was when you took your middle finger and rubbed it on the other person's palm in midst handshake. It was really creepy when my drill sergeant did that when I graduated but to be fair he did it to everybody, which is still weird.

    Is that it? I dunno!

    Dying to know, now! I shook hands with the woman I have a crush on yesterday! I could have used this! lol

    I felt like I crushed her poor little hand, so maybe I inadvertently did the lesbian handshake! She has wimpy hands, I wasn't aware ahead of time.

    Not sure what this is, but I feel as I have a pretty good gaydar or at least I get certain vibes around people, so I'm not too bad off, although I would like to know this.

    Never heard of it before. Hmm you learn something new everyday!

    Part of me really wants to test this on someone. Would it be creepy if I started doing this to people?

    People do that all the time in middle and high school among friends to creep each other out. It's a weird sensation

    It was supost to be a joke, actually. The joke goes "we need a lesbian Handshake because no one can tell if a woman is gay or not" especially Femmes. That is what I was told, at least.
