New Lulu app lets us women decide if men are hot... or not!
Usually there are dating sites and apps out there that are intended to help you find your prince charming. And sometimes finding that guy means going through good and bad dates. That's where the Lulu app will be your savior. The app acts as a database which allows women to rate and review the men they have hooked-up or dated in order to inform other women who may want to date him too. The best way to describe it is as creator Alexandra Chong puts it: the "yelp" of hook-ups.
If you're going to date someone, you might as well get the 411 on him before you even accept going out with them. Life is too short to be wasting it on someone who isn't even worth your time! So how does Lulu work?

Lulu isn't the first app that allows women to rate the men they've been with. But Chong tells Buzzfeed.com that it's different from the rest because it's a way for women to review men for other ladies who may be interested in dating them.
This probably sounds as a means to trash former lovers, but the app has a limited amount of drop-down response selections for each question to keep women from going overboard with insults. Chong says Lulu's purpose is to be light-hearted and to talk about the good and bad about dating some guys.
And men can't use the app because it is set up in order for it to be only used by women who have to log on via their Facebook page. Once they log in they are able to search for guys names they've hooked up with on Facebook and anonymously rate him. The site uses hashtags to create funny phrases to sum up the guys but prevents women from writing further details that might defame their character.
There have already been over 75,000 downloads of the app and it continues to grow. Chong has even gained 2.5 million dollars for funding her app which she hopes to partner with other dating sites.
We do tend to already tell our amigas everything about our love lives, so why not share it with other women across the internet? I do find it kind of creepy the idea that there could be a database out there filled with all this information about your former lovers. In some respects, it's good and others it's questionable. I'm not sure if I'm fully convinced of the Lulu app, but if it works for other women, why not? After all Chong's creation already has seen success up until now!
