1) You are going to meet plenty of new people, so be prepared for anything.

At the risk of being boring, many dates will throw some pretty crazy questions at you.

Nothing beats the feeling of knowing the date you most enjoyed is into you as well.

Speed dating might seem simple, but there are four tips you should consider before embarking on your next speed-dating adventure.

I went through the Power Point slides, introducing speed dating and how it relates to our book speed dating activity. After all the "dating" has finished, each student will choose a playing card from the middle of the tables.

We went over the directions thoroughly, and I made absolutely certain everyone knew what to do. Students who got a heart or a diamond (red card) get a "kiss" at the end of their date (Hershey's kiss). Many of the books got checked out, and the students were really engaged and enjoyed it.

Among the over-50 population, this style of dating is especially common.

With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.

If the district promotes the student, per the ARD committee decision, the district is not required to provide an additional testing opportunity.

Districts are required to notify parents, not later than September 1 of each school year, of this ARD committee option.

So here is what I did: : Decide how you want the tables set up. I put 10-15 books on each table to represent that genre. I also set up a Power Point with the directions for the minutes. As they came in, they noticed the signs and books, and I could already tell they were picking their genres, even though I hadn't said a word about what we were doing. The romance section was particularly popular, even with the boys, so I added some "non-pink" romances to that table for the boys.

I just told them to sit anywhere and that we would be moving soon enough. I am excited to add a fun twist for when I do this lesson again.

Whatever the case may be, speed dating for older adults is more common and more useful than ever before; it has transformed into an art, where those who can master its style are most successful. Keep reading and we will catch you up to speed (no pun intended).
