NYC actress uses Yelp to create a humorous timeline of her dating history

Many people use Yelp to find new places to take dates, but one New York City woman used it to review the actual dates.

Actress Natalie Walks calls herself a "longtime 'getting weird on the Internet' devotee," so she got the idea to post reviews of places she went on dates and gave them stars based on how the date went.

It initially started as a gag to show her friends.

"I figured I'd write a few reviews and screenshot them before they got filtered; I'd maybe get four likes from my friends on Twitter, and then I'd move on to my next dumb social media joke," she told BuzzFeed.

"This whole endeavor was meant more as an archaeological dig of my lame adolescence than a social experiment conducted in real time," she continued, adding that she only reviewed dates that were over five years ago so the "wounds are all long healed" and she can look back on them and laugh.

Some dates got five stars.

But all were accompanied by details about the date.

The reviews started getting enough attention that reps from Yelp took notice and eventually told her they'd ban her account for violating their terms of service.

But she wasn't too upset that her reviews were eventually removed, especially since she screengrabbed them. "I do dumb things and post about them on the Internet all the time, so it's less 'goodbye' and more 'back to doing this regularly and nobody caring about it,'" she said of her Yelp endeavor.
