Now both men and women can put a name to their pain with BarCode, a sassy glossary of words, definitions, and etymologies that perfectly articulates the bliss--and the blunders--of modern dating. This is the ultimate "she said/he said" for anyone who ever regretted saying anything.

The Agony and the Ex-to-See\the ag-o-ne and the x-ta-ce\n.: Cosmic law that states your most embarrassing moment will be witnessed by your ex.

Kisstake\kis-tak\n.: The act of being caught swapping saliva with someone other than your girlfriend. Example: With his girlfriend out of town, Alan thinks he's safe to indulge in some illicit tongue-tango with this sassy little thing he's just met in a hole-in-the-wall club. Big kisstake!

Message in a Bottle\mes-ij n a bot-l\n.: The late-night, drunken message you left on his machine.

From the happily married who want to reminisce about their swinging single days, to the devastatingly single who want to be married, to the involved but not committed, BarCode is destined to become your new best friend.
