Remember those poster fairs at college, when every man, woman and child would come forth to claim the "unique" Bob Marley or Jim Morrison poster with which to plaster the walls of dorm rooms across campus?

Think of this weekend's International Vintage Poster Fair as the grown-up version. More than 10,000 old posters will be for sale at the event, including food and liquor ads, Art Deco displays and more. We're most intrigued by "The Art of Persuasion," a feature exhibit on the history of propaganda posters over the last century, which is almost certain not to feature Bob Marley.

The Fair kicks off with a preview party from 5-9 p.m. tonight at the Pritzker Military Library ($30, including wine, hors d'oeuvres, a raffle and lecture), and runs from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday at the Chicago Cultural Center, 77 E. Randolph. Admission is $15, but free for those under 25.

I understand that there are many women that believe men should pay for everything on the first date, open doors, pull out chairs -- the whole enchilada. I, on the other hand, feel that I am too independent to let someone else take care of me. I'm a grown woman, I was in the military and went to Iraq, I'm pretty sure I can pay my own way and open my own doors. I think it really depends on the situation. If Jenny asks Sam out, Jenny should pay for the date. If it's the other way around, Sam should pay for the date. I don't think it's right if Jenny asks Sam out and then expects him to pay for everything.

I think the problem is there is no specific approach for dating, as no two people are the same.

For example: at the same bar, one girl sitting alone may want to be hit on, bought drinks, and rip up the dance floor with a guy while another may want to be approached by a gentleman who will engage her in stimulating conversation.

The dating "game" is all about how you can adapt to the surroundings and situation in every scenario. Those who can accomplish this feat move on to round two, those who don't go home lonely another night.

Single for two and half years; I played the chaser, played the chasee, played tag - you're it, played ignore her completely, and any other game I had to, just to have a chance.
