    Why would she feel uncomfortable about it of she's the one extending her hand?

    Lol.

    PS: I'm a woman and can assure you we don't get uncomfortable in shaking a man/woman's hand.
    No I meant I wouldn't want to make a woman uncomfortable that's all. Thanks for the reassurance

    This is a totally unisex custom. For any woman or man you don't know well, a handshake is an appropriate greeting. The only exception is for very personal situations, like meeting extended family.
    I see, thank you

    How did she offer her hand? Was it full on Serena Williams vs Lindsay Davenport over-the-net power shake, or was it Southern-Belle-Why-Captain-Butler,-how-do-you-do?

    If the woman herself indicated that she thought that shaking hands was appropriate, I think you can take it that she felt comfortable with this form of social interaction. What might have made her feel uncomfortable, though, is having her attempt to shake hands rebuffed...
    Thank you, I did shake her hand

    Really?
    What's her ethnicity? It's not common in some cultures.
