The library is still a large part of their lives, and Kenny said he is excited to soon share books with their daughter.
On Sunday, clerk Richard Andrews, 50, said finding a “special someone” at the speed dating event would be nice.
“But that’s all you have to gauge your interaction with.”Trisha Champoux said what people gain from speed dating depends on the mindset they have going in to it.“You get out of it what you put into it,” she said.
This event is the most gracious, easy and comfortable way to meet quality men that I can think of. I love that every thing was so precisely organized.
Kenny was struck by her smile and how much energy she still had at the end of the event.
When they were matched later, Kenny sent Trisha the “nicest email” to plan their next date.
He went on a speed date with her anyway, and left once he accomplished that goal.“I would try it again, if I could lie about my age,” he said with a laugh.
But he said he’s more interested in the speed dating experience than anything.
It’s revealing what people choose to bring up about themselves in three minutes, he said.“It must be important to them,” he said.
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.
