Can I get a list of the women who signed up on the site?  Cuz that would be a list of people I never want to so much as spend 5 minutes with.

Every female on Facebook, I believe.

Remember dontdatehimgirl.com from a few years back? Same idea. Caught my wife looking me up on that site once. Fortunately I was wise enough to bury the bodies so deep only the Lord could find them.

Shallow people gonna be shallow.  Improved shallowness technology doesn't change that.  If you couldn't identify them before, why should you be allowed to identify them now?

If one was made you would be we would be reading about internet wide outrage.  The double standard that feminists hold is appalling.

/Its only slut-shaming if you do it to women.
/I hate feminists.

"Using names and photographs culled from Facebook, Lulu women take a quiz about male friends' manners, ambitions, and appearance..."

I've always said that different women have too much variance in what they consider attractive in men.  We've all seen a hot chick with an average or below average guy and usually guys joke and say the guy must be rich, but that's pretty seldom the case.

If you take 10 guys and place them in a social situation and have them rate the women around them based solely on looks, you would find most guys in agreement on what ones are attractive enough to date and what ones are not, I'd wager probably 9 out of 10 would agree with one another. Now do the same with women and you would be lucky to get 2 women to agree on the same guy. Women are fickle on what they find attractive in a potential partner.

Well, that might take the aforementioned 5 minutes...I'd like to save the time.

Okay, so I'll admit I was curious and jumped on the site.  I didn't think any of my friends would show up since I'm years past college and this seems like a college thing, but a dozen of my friends are listed on there.  While I didn't necessarily need to know that my boyfriend's best friend is tagged for "#Manscapes", it's actually fun to see what's on here.  Every one of my friends is rated positively, so I'm not sure it's a bad thing.

I'd be curious to show them their results though and see what they said.

ReapTheChaos: Women are fickle on what they find attractive in a potential partner.


I'm not sure if it's as much "fickle" as much as there's greater variation. Attractiveness tends to rank higher in a man's priorities for a mate than it does with women. While a man might not be interested in dating a woman who isn't, say, better than a 6.5, the woman might not care as much about a toned body so long as other attributes make up for that lack- say, a good sense of humor and a solid direction in life.

It just seems that attraction for females is more complex than it is for males.

"Wow. This is straight-up harassment. It invites women to make public electronic slander about people. I wonder how society would react if I made an app that let men rate women they knew and gossip about how slutty they are," a Reddit user called JizzCreek

Well I'm glad they got JizzCreek's opinion on this

I would put it this way:
Technically all that stands between that company and launching a copy of their site working the other way around is flipping a bit where they check the gender of Facebook profiles.
Flip a bit, replace some of the hashtags and you've increased the potential user base by 5% (I was going to say "roughly doubled the user base", but I doubt it will be that popular the other way around unless they market it as "Slutbook" or "EasyLayFinder" (pardon, it would have to be Web2.0, so: "ezayFindr")).
 
2013-11-14 02:37:40 PM  
Man, I'm really curious if I'm rated on this or not.

I thought this was most of the internet.  Hell it's a large part of fark.  Guys rating women based on how they look and what whores they are and how they are crazy.
 
2013-11-15 05:41:45 AM  
Turns out I had no ratings, then my friend from Auburn just gave me some great ones.  And my buddy has a female facebook account for his dog.  So we were able to bypass this oh-so-difficult security.
 
2013-11-15 02:47:46 PM  
Well, I'm curious now.  So I just created a fake facebook account, with a mailinator email address and a stock photo profile pic, etc.

Apparently, it's got some sort of account longevity check, so I'll wait a while and try again.
