Because of a large lawsuit, this story was released recently:
Because I know that most people won't take the time to read the article, let me summarize it for you. Mary Kay Beckman used the match.com online dating service. In 2011 she met Wade Ridley. They went on a few dates. Mary Kay felt that there was just something "off" about him and decided to break it off. A month or so later she came home to Ridley hiding in her garage with a knife. He stabbed her 10 times then kicked and stomped on her head. His intention was to kill her. He confessed this after confessing to a murder he committed in Phoenix shortly after.
There are pictures on the site linked above. As with any form of violence, let alone [post] dating violence, this horrifies me. The fact that someone would react in such a way, that that level of carelessness of life exists, makes my heart sink to my stomach.
Mary Kay has decided to sue match.com for $10 million because the service paired her with this man.. Match.com does offer safe dating tips. Beckman, in her lawsuit, stated that the tips aren't thorough enough and that they need to "overtly warn users of potential dangers."
