I missed so many signals when I was in my early twenties. No regerts!!1!
I'd certainly thought the etiquette was you hold out your hand rather than getting grabby, sure - which would, to my way of thinking, address any problems of unwanted touch, same as it does for hugs (I follow a similar protocol where I don't hug someone unexpectedly, I let them meet me). I guess I'd always thought there are plenty of ways out of being "locked in", as long as someone doesn't grab your hand, so if this was an actual problem then it must be because someone is grabby (doesn't follow proper handshake etiquette). Sometimes, I "have a cold" and politely decline to infect those around me. Meanwhile, it would be good if social norms changed so it was easier to decline unwanted handshakes, same as it is considered acceptable to decline a hug.
