Emerging: Two-handed handshakes

Bro hugs are deader than dead, let’s pretend fist mashing never happened, and until the old-school gimme-five comes back, the two-handed handshake is the social embrace of the moment. It begins life as your basic shake, but becomes almost self-aware with addition of the second hand to the back of the shakee’s already-being-shook hand, usually a full second after the handshake has been originated. The result of this clasp is an additional degree of sincerity that, combined with solid eye-contact, let’s everyone know that you’re coming from a place that is equal parts deep and real.

We’re also keeping our eye on the single-handsake/tricep squeeze lockup, but it’s not quite there yet.
