The Perfect Handshake

Friends and family shape my personality and life goals more than anything. Sometimes, I express strong feelings towards my loved ones in odd ways. By intertwining the fingers, this handshake is only shared between two people with a very close relationship. The handshake makes strangers uncomfortable because it carries both the distance of a business handshake and the intimacy of a hug. I encourage viewers to try this handshake with a friend. Start by standing across one another and placing your pinkies between the other person’s index and middle fingers. Then, intertwine the rest of your fingers. The best reaction to the handshake I have ever received is, “This is weird!” And yet, they continued to hold onto my hand.
