From da Vinci to Dating, everyone wants to crack the code. Liz Kelly, Relationship Expert and Author of "Smart Man Hunting," announces a new code book to help singles find their holy grail, true love. After interviewing and coaching thousands, she's developed 26 A-Z codes for the main personality types to help singles identify their Perfect Match faster.

Just like cracking the da Vinci code, dating can be complex and puzzling. To crack the dating code, Liz Kelly, author of "Smart Man Hunting," announces a new code book to help singles say good-bye to the WD (Wounded Divorce) faster, and keep the focus on finding the LM (Love Match) who makes your heart skip a few beats whenever they call.

To provide a new shorthand for singles, Kelly first started making up these codes for men at parties in Los Angeles as comic relief. When girlfriends starting calling from around the country to get the codes for their guy, Kelly knew she had tapped into a new secret code for singles.

1. How to identify the 26 A-Z Codes

2. How to Read the Clues Faster

3. Check Compatibility with Life Match Questions

1. How to identify 26 A-Z Codes for the main personality types

Due to the demand for more codes, Kelly expanded her list to 26 A-Z Codes for the main personality types to help singles identify their Perfect Match faster. This new code includes everybody from the All Sports Fanatic (ASF) to the Zodiac Zealot (ZZ). Using these 26 codes in "Smart Man Hunting," singles are identifying the "good guys, bad guys and maybe guys." Kelly shares, “You want to avoid wasting time with the Justifying Juggler (JJ), and know when to take a closer look at the Keeper-of-the-Fire (KOF).”

2. Read the Clues Faster

Find out how to read the clues faster, and make quick decisions versus wasting weeks, months and even years with a Ms. or Mr. Wrong. Kelly explains, “I coached a woman out of a bad relationship that lasted 13 years too long. When I explained what love was supposed to look like, she quickly found her fiancé and now has a win-win relationship.” Kelly adds, “If the signs are not there, you need to immediately say Next!” This new code book helps singles identify Quick Qualifiers and Dating Dealbreakers within the first three dates.

3. Check Compatibility with Life Match Questions

Kelly provides Life Match questions for first dates, second dates, and beyond – to help singles check compatibility using this dating code. Singles can find out a potential mate's passions, how they like to spend the holidays, and whether they have any serious baggage to address - early in the dating game using these Life Match questions. This code book includes true-story examples and strategies for what to do if you meet each type, plus how to find the total package. Kelly adds, "It's all about the package. You don't want to be so blinded by lust that you miss the elephant in the room before exchanging 'I dos'."

Call Liz for an interview, and she can reveal:

  • Two must-have codes for any potential mate to pass Go!
  • Identifying a Love Match (LM) who’s good in bed before having sex.
  • The 26 types of men. Where are those Confident Metro Males (CMM’s), who have balance and style?
  • Avoiding trouble... like the Married But Available (MBA) type
  • The fun compatibility quiz all searching singles should take.
  • “Hiring” the total package who has the right combination of the good and maybe codes.

"Smart Man Hunting" also provides a Man Code Movie Guide to help singles learn about love by watching movies. There are fun celebrity examples for 26 codes: Will Smith, the romantic Keeper-of-the-Fire (KOF) in Hitch, Hugh Grant, the X-Ray Eyes (XRE) in Bridget Jones’ Diary and Adrian Brody is the Love Match (LM) in King Kong.

  • "Kelly's codes are eye-opening and very much on target such as ASF for All Sports Fanatic, RR for Relentless Renter, or GWO for Guy With Offspring. Not only does she describe these various types of men, but gives extremely useful strategies on how to deal with them."
