NEW YORK -

A new app is out there that allows women to write and read anonymous reviews about the people they date.

"Lulu" launched in the U.S. this week. It asks female users to describe men using hashtags such as #HandyMan and #CheaperThanABigMac. They also answer multiple choice questions which are then converted into scores out of ten.

The qualities you can attribute to a guy - which are listed in hashtag form - are restricted to a specific list so that the reviews remain 'lighthearted and not cruel,' explains the app's creator, Alexandra Chong.

#BelievesInLove and #HandyMan are some of the positive traits in the list, while #LoserFriends and #CheaperThanABigMac are some of the worst.

Chong came up with the idea for Lulu when she found herself telling her girlfriends about a boy who wasn't her type, but who "might be perfect for someone else."

She says Lulu is intended to be "a discreet, private space for girls to talk about the most important issues in their lives: their relationships."
