Cultural Note: In the United States people do not always shake hands when introduced. Men usually do when introduced to other men. When introduced to a woman, a man usually waits for the woman to offer her hand. Women frequently do not shake hands when introduced to either men or women.

Generally when men shake hands with each other they offer a firm grip.
