Shirlington library speed dating
So it’s anyone’s guess who “invented” the idea, and which library sponsored the first-ever book dating program. Prisbrey explains that it’s speed dating — each one-on-one session is timed for three to four minutes (although some people would like it to go longer) — and Prisbrey says she uses bells and whistles to enforce this time restriction.
Most participants seem somewhat experienced with the speeding dating process. “They jump right in.” One of the challenges has been the uneven gender ratio, with a disproportionate number of women registering for the events (during the second session, for example, there were 24 participants, and only 6 or 7 were men).
Prisbrey is quick to point out, however, that it’s really a way for young to meet — not necessarily a “dating” event, so women are finding women friends this way.
“Arlington has become so young.” DONNELLY ISN' T the only one who feels like an outsider in a landscape she imagines as filled with Abercrombie-clad dudes and chicks, fluttering between bar crawls and the gym.
Upon successful registration we will email you a confirmation with the event details.
