Lulu, the iOS and Android app for reviewing and objectifying men, had a good first week, reaching the Top 20 in the U.S App. store with over 100,000 downloads.
On Lulu, girls anonymously ridicule and rate men on appearance, humor, manners, ambition, first kiss, sex, and commitment. So if you want to know if that guy you met has a #CleanBathroom or is #CheaperThanABigMac, this is for you.
Like 75 percent of online gamers, it helps to at least pretend to be a woman. If you admit to being a man, or your Facebook login is a man, you get the rejection: "Dude, you're a dude." Perhaps due to keeping out icky men, so far people are being nice. The worst condemnation a man can get, though, is an ex-girlfriend saying he is a keeper...for someone else.
No surprise, since Lulu CEO and Founder Alexandra Chong says she actually came up with the idea for Lulu on Valentine's Day after the man she went on a date with was perfect - for someone else. Chong said she then realized that girls needed a place to sing the praises of guys they liked, but not romantically. So Lulu is here and now women can read reviews by some guy's sister.
In that positive vein, Chong urges every woman to review and recommend one good guy - someone good enough for a competitor, just not good enough for you. Oh, and maybe women will tell each other to get a cute, short haircut too. You can bet when another woman compliments your new, short haircut, she is also secretly thinking, 'I just eliminated a competitor'.
Male scientists, here is hoping you get a #HeInventedSex review this evening, but make sure you are #GoneByMorning.
