The Hand Shake
People have needs. Whether another person gives those needs to us or someone else is individually based. This person shares one of their dirtiest confessions involving a handshake. They said, “one time I was jerking it when my doorbell rang. I got decent and answered the door. It was two friends stopping by to say hi. One of them reached out to shake my hand and he reached for the hand I was beating it with.” We can only imagine what must’ve been going on in that guy’s head. There was a long moment of hesitation.
They said, “I was mortified, and stared at his hand for a second. The look on both their faces was clear. They thought I was disgusted with shaking his hand. He’s a big black guy btw, and I’m white. I was too socially awkward to just say “dude you caught me on a solo afternoon delight mission and you don’t wanna shake my hand” so instead I shook his hand with as little effort as possible and then never talked to him again out of sheer embarrassment. I’m certain he thinks I’m a massive racist.”
To be fair, if he had been open and vulnerable at that very moment, he could’ve made a friend for life. Instead, he felt too embarrassed to admit the truth and decided not to share what he had been up to (via Reddit).
