Speed dating in omaha
Getzschman said she knew of three couples who met at past events and are now married. Speed dating match Kenny Champoux, 45, and Trisha Champoux, 42, are expecting a baby girl in April.When Trisha entered the speed dating event in February 2015 she had no expectations of meeting her future husband.Each “date” lasted three minutes, and participants could expect to finish a few dozen of them before the event was over.If a connection was sparked during a conversation, daters circled “yes” on a sheet of paper to indicate they’d be open to speaking again.She remembered him telling her about his family and how some of them lived overseas like her.Kenny was struck by her smile and how much energy she still had at the end of the event.
Richard Andrews, left, and Gregg Limley were among the 80 daters at the W. “(We) try to reconnect them with the library while they’re here, and hopefully they make a love connection too,” said Emily Getzschman, the library’s marketing manager.
A month or so after the library event, Andrew and Jillian went on their first regular date at Blue Line Coffee in Omaha’s Dundee neighborhood.
They have three minutes for each “date.” After the conversation, each person writes down the name of his or her partner and circles “yes” or “no.” If both circle “yes,” it’s a match, and the library later sends them an email with contact info so they can meet again.
Although Trisha was intimidated by the idea, she thought rushing through 30 first dates would let her dip her toe back in the dating pool.
Kenny, a retirement plan administrator, was the last person Trisha spoke with that night.
When they were matched later, Kenny sent Trisha the “nicest email” to plan their next date.
