New app lets you review your dates

Girls-only app Lulu lets you review guys to help other girls.

By HerCampus.com Mar 27, 2013 4:18PM

Have you ever gotten halfway through a date with a guy and thought, "I wish someone had warned me that he (insert off-putting habit or quality he possesses here)"? There's now an app that can give you that warning you wish you'd had! 

Photo: New app let's you review your dates / LuluLulu is an app that lets you review your exes or past hookups to let other girls know what they're like so that they're ready for what's in store for them. 

Alexandra Chong said she created this app because even though some of the guys she's been with in the past weren't for her, they could be right for someone else. Lulu isn't the place to totally trash your ex and make sure he never gets a girlfriend, though. It's supposed to be a place to recommend guys to other women, and do so in a lighthearted, not cruel, way.

Lulu is a "No Boys Allowed" zone -- you can use the app only if you identify yourself as female on Facebook. Then, Lulu gives you a list of all of the guys you're Facebook friends with, so you can review anybody you've been with and can see the reviews of anyone you haven't been with. All of the reviews are totally anonymous, too, so no worries there!

Guys are rated on assets such as their appearance, sense of humor, level of commitment and all of their best and worst qualities. You have to choose your ratings from a dropdown menu rather than just typing in your thoughts, which keeps things from getting too personal or vindictive. Options include positive things like #SmartIsSexy, #RespectsWomen and #CallsOnTime, and not-so-positive things like #Boring, #CheaperThanABigMac and #WearsEdHardy. 

Give it a try and download the Lulu app today.

Um, yeah, he's not my type (Do I even know what my type is?) but he might be right for you... Because you're a loser for using this app. Like me. But only on the weekends because I have plenty of time for loser guys who read MSN.

Really weird... even something that could be positive can be phrased negatively, and that negative phrasing impacts how it's then perceived. After all, what's negative to one person might be positive to me, and vice versa. Can't girls just get to know a guy themselves? I ended up with the most amazing boyfriend, we've been together for over five years, and I'm pretty sure none of his exes would've had anything good to say about him.

I am a women and I dont think this is good idea. Dating is hard enough as it is. Guys should be allowed to air out their dirty laundry (so to speak) on their own terms. If this is through Facebook, hopefully they have the option to decline being a part of this.

I can't believe that we've come to this.

... Seriously? I hope the person in question can censor or remove comments made about them, or else I see hundreds of angry exes giving everyone low grades.
