Highly attractive young women who are barely old enough to 1) date an adult legally OR 2) drink alcohol. In either case, barelies are not normally suitable for long-term relationships or intelligent conversation.
Dude, look at those two barelies going into Jamba Juice. Oh my God!

People say barely as an expression to mean. "Not at all." Basically meaning "Not even close" . People say "barely". This expression comes from a chinese-european mexican/canadian man named Bare Lee.. He invented this after his name... Bare Lee. Into Barely. This inspiration of a miracle came back from 2002, As Bare Lee was a freshman in high school he had troubles findin his classes. So at first period he found a classroom misthought of as math. But it was really french. So as he said "I FINALLY FOUND MATH CLASS" a inspiring bully exclaimed "BARELY" and Bare lee thought. Thats a good word to say. It adds my name combined to mean a phrase that defines not at all. And soon Bare Lee died and his legacy was reminded as the man who invented the word and phase Barely.
"I FINALLY DID IT, I CROSSED THE FINISH LINE"
