Do YOU Lulu?
So I was surfing the net the other day and came across the latest addition in Facebook apps. Cosmopolitan has even gone as far as to describe it as “Sex and the City marries facebook”. With that being said, Lulu is the name and rating men is the game. This clever little app is for women only, it connects you to all your male friends and allows you to rate them anonymously.
And upon learning of this I had to check it out for myself. The verdict? It’s flipping hilarious! Although it’s a relatively new app and needs to gain more users the ratings are quite amusing. While checking out the ratings I did one of two things. I either gasped and threw my hand over my mouth in utter shock or I nearly choked from laughing so hard.
With a variety of categories such as sex, humour, looks and more your answers give a rating out of 10. In addition to being anonymous, it keeps all activity off of Facebook allowing women to be brutally honest be it good or bad. The best part? After you’ve rated [him] you can choose from a number of pre-made hashtags to add to their profile without leaving too much of a personal opinion. The hashtags by the way, are fricken hilarious – #selfabsorbed #porneducated #50waysfromfuckedup #hotncold and of course the good ones like #opensdoors #loveshisfamily #sexualpanther #dudecancook and many more…
(notice how I place the sexualpanther in the good category *winks*) haha
Now, while this app is one-sided some may argue that it’s unfair and gives only a biased review there’s no doubt, that who ever said crackbook couldn’t get any more addicting was wrong. Rewind 8 years… Anyone remember Hot or Not?!
Anyways, this is going to open up a whole new facet to the dating world. I can see it now heads are going to roll.. Eventually the male version app will surface and before you know it people will be asking each other on dates and instead of saying yes or no the response will be “I don’t date hashtag mamasboys with hashtag hygenicallychallenged hashtag 6.5’s” or ” hashtag cantleavehousewithoutmakep hashtag daddyissues, hashtag golddigging 7.2, are you kidding me? No thanks”
So let me ask you a question, if you seen your brother or best friend on there would you rate them? Better yet, what about your best friends boyfriend? If it was an anonymous opinion would it really matter how honest you were? Would you even think twice? This gets me thinking about all the things people do when they think no one is watching or that they will get away with it. Any of my fellow readers out there caught a fellow driver picking their nose? Haha yea we’ve all seen it… Picking it like there’s no tomorrow.. Going for the gold… Olympic style! (ahh, I crack myself up sometimes) Getting all excited and shit when they finally get that booger they’ve been concentrating hard on grabbing for the last 1.5 minutes of their life. Yea we’ve ALL seen that before… annnd that’s 1.5 minutes of my life I can’t get back…
What I’m getting at is what is it in your life that you would do if no one was watching? If you were guaranteed to not get caught? Judging by the rapid rate of decline in humanities morality it’s highly likely that most people would do something relatively naughty like cheat on a spouse or partner or better yet rob a bank but this brings me to wonder.. If we are thinking about doing something we know we shouldn’t and it’s in the back of our minds, then is it not possible that our subconscious will someday eventually cause us to act out consciously? And if you’re not happy with someone or something in your life – this could one day turn out to be a scary thing. Never-the-less I think it’s safe to say that we need to make sure we’re in touch with our TRUE selves each and everyday. Not lying to one another about ourselves but more importantly not lying to OURSELVES. Being honest is always the best policy but it only works best if we practice it before we get to a place of no return. And if by chance you enter the point of no return then honesty is still the way to go because it’s the only thing that helps to mend the distrust that follows. Either way honesty helps build better relationships and prevent mistakes down the road.
Now provided that was a little heavy, this leads me to think, could Lulu be a way of helping people be more honest? Help people get a more accurate, real picture of each other? Or could this eventually make women distrust and hate men more than they already do (don’t even get me started on this one..) Well, there’s only one way to find out….
