If a guy shakes a girls hand with two hands(ie. he's like totally covering her hand) does this mean anything? Could it be a sign that he's interested or am i just reading to much into it.

The only time the handshake means anything .. is when you feel like you are being undressed.

It depends on the details. Is it a mutual handshake, or does he take her hand unexpectedly? In the first case it could be just and "emphatic" handshake. In the second case he is just doing the handshake for both of them (maybe he extended his hand but she did not notice it, and he did not want to stay with his hand in the air . . .).

Another question is how long it lasts. If he keeps her hand between his hands extending the goodbye he is obviously having a hard time letting her go . . .

Unless he was naked, yes reading too much into it..
Two handed hand shake I have been told is akin trust and friendship.

That depends. Was he rubbing with the left? If so, then yes.
If not... then no.
Come on girl... why not just tell him he made you melt!

Short answer...if you have to ask if he was flirting with a handshake, then he did an excellent job.

Just about anything can be used to flirt, handshakes included. The key to successfully flirting is subtly, a point lost on most men. In the case of a handshake it isn't how you hold her hand that matters, but rather how you accept it and release it.

It means he's possessed by demons and wants to inseminate you with his tainted seed.

i.e. The world-famous double handshaker - Tom Cruise. Sorry Suri, but you're toast.

If a girl were to shake my hand, I would think we're agreeing to some sort of business deal. Who the hell shakes a girls hand? That's just right ****ed lol

Be careful. If you trip while shaking hands, then say ouch not once, not twice, but thrice, you are considered legally married.

I think it's a case of different people shake hands in different ways...

Hand holding on the other hand is more likely to be flirty.

The addition of the second hand is a sign of respect, trust or endearment.

I think it's a bit much. Like someone that continues to hold your hand while they
talk to you. I'd say, the eye contact means more then the hand shake anyways!

A handshake with both hands means something? I don't think so. It's more of a mannerism than anything else. If he tries to lick your hand . . . well then, there ya' go.

Thanks to everyone who posted. But wow, alot of you are very bitter and rude. The attitude your giving out really isn't needed.

By the way... We were also in a semi-formal setting(so thats why the handshake happened, we didn't meet in a club)

And it didn't seem just like a normal thing to me. He also was looking into my eyes while he said "It was greeeat meeting you" and then he smiled at me and held on to my hands for a bit longer.

So even if it wasn't "flirting" at all. It wasn't just a buisness kind of handshake, it was atleast a "we're going to be friends and i know it" handshake.

The Second hand is just a little something extra normaly given to show emotion on the guys part because of a loss on the rcv'n ends part. For instance if someone died the hand shake there family rcv'd would probally be a 2 hander.

Don't ask me. A woman can hold up a sign in front of my face that says "I'm interested in you - call me" and I'll sit there and wonder what she means by that. I've gotten to the point where women just really confuse me (much more than they used to).

he may be interested in you when shaking your hand, if his other hand is:
(a) in your shirt
(b) in his shirt
(c) in his pants
(d) all of the above -(keep him away from anyone you value)

A flirting handshake would be grabbing your hand softly with a regular shake and then slowly shifting his grip to caress your palms, your fingers and then the back of your hand. If he's really flirtatious, he may try to tickle your palms, run his hands up your forearm or even try to tickle your arm with his nails...

Anything less is just a handshake
