New Phone App Gives Women Inside Scoop to Their Dating Lives
DAYTON -- A new phone app is giving girls an inside scoop for their dating lives.
It's called Lulu.
It's free, and it rates men based on what women have to say about them.
You have to be at least 17 to use it, but once you log in, it immediately starts asking you to rate your male friends.
Lulu has its own website, claiming that it "helps girls make smarter decisions, starting with relationships."
"It's sort of like a little gossip circle, like a little secret," said David Shanks.
Shanks has got it right.
That's exactly how the app promotes itself to women.
"We can write whatever we want and they can't do that and everything is anonymous but that's what is the most fun about it," said Kristina Hyland.
Lulu gives the guy a rating out of 10, and that can help the girl decide whether or not she wants to go out with him.
"Some guy I had a crush on in class and now I see that he's kind of a dirtbag and now I'm like no thank you," said Hyland.
Once you're signed into the app, it accesses your friends list on Facebook.
You just click on their name, and then you can "review them anonymously."
Everything from how "he cleans up" to what his best qualities are.
"They can say what they want to say but I don't think there's anyone out to get me," said Shanks.
Not that he would know. The app doesn't allow men to see how they're being rated, and some say that's not fair.
"It's all personal opinion so there's not much validity, not much verification, someone could get on there and slander you, you don't really know," said Shanks.
But for some of the women who use it, it's all the proof they need.
"I kind of trust other girls, I mean," said Hyland. "It's a chance for us all to help each other out in a way, because you give each other a heads up."
Lulu was created in February of this year, and already has more than a million female users.
