No smirks allowed

I went on a date.

He took me to The Bywater in Los Gatos for a genuine Sazerac.

One of the best in the Bay.

And apart from him spilling his entire gin gimlet on me during an animated discussion, we had a good time.

People always ask how I can meet people I don’t know off the internet.

What criteria do I look for?

That’s a complicated answer.

For this guy, I noticed one of his photos was of him at Holi – an Indian celebration of spring.

It reminded me of when I used to go to Holi with my friends:

Before, and after:

But what I really look for is a genuine, warm and caring smile.

No smirks allowed.
