Hot or Not? Lulu is a Girls-Only App for Reviewing Your Guy Friends

“Sex and the City meets Facebook” is how some people have described it, and we would have to agree. Lulu, the brand new womens-only app for finding and reviewing men (available on both iOS and Android), is one of the hottest new apps on the market. It’s interesting to note the “girls club-ness” of the whole thing. It uses Facebook Connect to log you in and determine if you are a lady. If not, it’s to the streets you go!


Once you’re in, you can browse all dudes in the network, or just filter to your guy friends. Click to view each guy’s profile and feel free to write him a review. You can rate him on everything from how great of a friend he is, to how great of a boyfriend he is, to how great of a sex partner he is (don’t worry, it doesn’t get *too* R-rated). Because we live in an Instagram and Twitter world, the app also lets you add pre-determined hashtags that help define him. They range from positive (#RespectsWomen) to neutral (#CleansUpGood) to negative and weird (#WearsEdHardy).

We happened to find one of our men’s contributors, Matt Galligan, on Lulu. Here’s a sneak peek at his profile. 9.8! Wowsers. Get him while he’s hot, ladies.

Why is the app so popular? Well obviously, it’s very entertaining (and the fact that it’s girls-only has a very cool secretive feel). Secondly, it lets you check in on potential dudes you may want to date to get validation from other women if he’s a heartbreaker or a future husband. It’s like going on one big gabfest with thousands of your girlfriends.

It’s nice to see so many guys get favorable reviews on here; the downside, however, can be quite brutal. Is it okay to rate other humans based on appearance and personality traits? Should you use technology to place judgments, or defer to in-person meetings to make a call? There are certainly many questions to ask.

In our personal experience, it tends to skew towards younger men — teen and college guys. But after using the app for the past few weeks, I’ve seen my 20 and 30-something male friends start to appear more and more. One other note: be careful if you are a taken lady — I was caught off guard a bit when I found my husband within the app. He had four reviews already! Stay away, girls. He’s taken.

Have you guys tried Lulu yet? What do you think of it? How do you think dating is changing in the digital age? Speak to us!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
