Never mix business with pleasure: Why handshake? - Seems so business like!
Maybe you should try the 'hand shake' where you literally shake your hands furiously to get your dates attention. That way they'll instantly recognise it's you they're meeting and most likely make them smile and ultimately relaxed upon first meeting you!
On a serious note they say a weak handshake is a sign to the health of ones heart. Well, mines pretty broken so handshakes are out of the window!
Personally, I'll always approach with a friendly hello and go from there. When I'm on a date, I'm just myself and that always leads to... Hugs whether during or at the end 8) Sweet :-)

Actually usually a kiss on each cheek. It’s pleasant and friendly but formal, without being too at arms length. Usually accompanied with a loose hug, kind of hand to hip/waist/shoulder, as that indicates romantic interest more than diplomat norms.
The social etiquette for it varies from country to country, though, so i’d Be careful if I was elsewhere.
