The downtown library hosted speed dating groups for ages 25 to 35 and 35 to 45 Friday evening.
Andrews said finding a "special someone" would be nice, but he also wants to find friends who share his interests.John Adrian is no stranger to speed dating at the W. Last year some librarians persuaded him to attend the free, Valentine’s Day-inspired event.He had recently gotten divorced and thought speed dating would be a low-stress way to meet new people, especially with the time constraint on each “date.”“It’s very difficult to make a fool out of yourself in three minutes,” he said.The second time they met, the couple stayed talking at a restaurant so long they were the only people left there, and Trisha drove home thinking Kenny would be the man she would marry.About nine months after they met, Kenny proposed to Trisha in front of the W. The proposal lasted three minutes, in honor of their first “date.”“If the wedding would’ve been three minutes, that would’ve been great too,” Kenny said.Then the couples can decide whether they want to schedule another date.
Emily Getzschman, the Omaha Public Library’s marketing manager, said the event is one way to bring people to the library who may not have visited in awhile.“(We) try to reconnect them with the library while they’re here, and hopefully they make a love connection too,” she said.
Kenny, a retirement plan administrator, was the last person Trisha spoke with that night.
She remembered him telling her about his family and how some of them lived overseas like her.
The event also shows how the library can be a community space, she said.
Rob Wilson, 60, was coaxed by his daughter to attend Sunday’s event.
