What does it mean when a guy friend gives you hand shakes instead of hugs?
I mean at first I thought it was strange but then I saw that he hugs other female friends including one of my best friends.So I asked her what is...

He sees you as a friend but he's not attracted to you as more than a friend.

Takes you as an acquaintance/ friend
sees you likely as just a friend. hope you didn't like him too much :(
It doesn't mean much. It must be that the guy isn't just comfortable with the idea.
Usually a handshake is a sign of respect, but not always..typically when you first meet someone, orrr someone that has become accustomed to shaking your hand (my uncle and I) they will just do it automatically. I don't think the meaning has a difference..but I do think hugs are a little more sensual

He doesn't consider you a close friend... probably..
Most likely because you don't give him the comfort he has with his other female friends... as in 'he doesn't view you or rather "feel" close enough to you, to feel comfortable to give you a hug'.. and that has nothing to do with 'how long he's known you'. Some people know each other for years! and still the comfort never comes between them, so they always give cold hand shakes and never goes further than that. Others feel comfortable with strangers the first day they meet!
why won't a guy shake a womans hand. that's rediculous.
did you tell her he lied to her?
Are you really curvy? He might feel awkward hugging you if he feels like he's squishing your... uh... assets.
