I feel this way about a hug. I do like to hug my friends and anyone that wants to be my friend will get a great big bear hug from me. Hugging skinny people is awkward, but most times they enjoy the big hug; however, those that sort of try to keep the space between the hug and do it delicately, as if they were going to break something, I get a creepy feeling from them. I then try to refrain from hugging them as they obviously are not comfortable with it. I rarely shake hands with those that I know and limit it to a "respectful" gesture to a stranger. Shaking a friend's hand, LOL, that would be like shaking your Mom's hand, or your Dad's hand; just give them a great big Hug! (that is if they are good parents and they actually Love you) If they are a close friend then they get kisses too! Male or female!

When shaking hands with a female, I admit I do tend to give a gentler handshake myself.
Think of it this way. Men talk to each other in gruff voices, but their voices will automatically soften up when talking to a female. Handshakes tend to be the same way.
