What is speed dating ? A new method of dating offers the hope you won't have to waste as much time getting through the duds (a person your not interested in) to find the delights. Speed dating has been popular in larger metropolitan areas in recent years.The people attending one recent speed dating session in a city say while they love their city, they all feel it is hard to meet new people. In a typical session, five men and five women will rotate, having six-minute conversations with each other. It's enough to frequently know if you're interested or not. It's over in 30 minutes, and when it ends, the speed daters write down who they would like to see again. When organizers find a match, the e-mails go out. An article from www.wdbj7.com

Each student will go on a date which only last a few minutes and within that time you will try to get to know as much as you can about that person. After that time is up you have to go on a date with the next person and get to know as much as you can about them.
You are a boy. You must fill in the information about who you are and you can be whatever you want to be. You have to try to make yourself as interesting as possible.
1: What is your job? (example, manager of a company or a rock star) 2: How much money do earn in one month? (example,$1000 or $1,000,000 a month) 3: What do you like doing on the weekend (example, climbing mountains or stay home and watch TV) 4: what type of boy/girlfriend do you like?
Breaking the ice. This means a topic you can use to start a conversation such as when there is silence and no one has anything to talk about. This game is to try to talk to as many people as you can in English for the majority of the class time. Having something interesting to talk will help you to have an interesting conversation, you can start by talking about your job and what you do.
During a speed dating session people would choose which person they liked the most and if two people like each other than they will go on a real date. Choose the student who you thought was the most interesting out of the whole class.
