    If she wins this, I know a friend of my parents who set me up with their daughter for a horrible prom date that’ll be hearing from my lawyer.

    As this unfolds we’ll probably find out it was her 1st husband!

    Unfortunately there are bad people who do bad things. Just because you are a victim, it doesn’t mean you are entitled to millions of dollars. Match.com is a way to meet people. In no way are they responsible for everyone who uses their site.

    I hate to say this, but I will. I almost hope this lady gets in a car accident on her way to court by someone without insurance. Then she can hire a lawyer to sue her current lawyer because he should have known it’s completely unsafe for her to be driving to court and sue him for $10 million.

    Yes, there are bad people out there. While watching a movie in Shaker Square Theater located in Shaker Heights, OH., my wife was brutally assaulted. Because of the lack of surveillance in the theater, the attackers were able to disabled a metal standard that supports ropes used for crowd control. The standard was stored near the lobby area. The attackers then walked to the theater seating area with the pipe. The pipe as a weapon. One of the attackers hit my wife in the head while demanding money and purses from my wife and her girlfriend. My wife and her friend were able to escape. They got to the lobby where employees refused to render aid. My wife and her girlfriend then ran into the street where they received help from passersby. Now the questions are: Are theater owners and employees responsible for the lack of security which allowed two people to walk into the lobby area and disassemble a rope standard? Are theater owners and employees responsible for allowing a person to walk back to the theater seating area with a pipe without detection? Are theater employees at fault for not rendering aid to assault vivitms? Could this brutal attack been prevented with proper surveillance? Is the Theater at fault for not warning customers that being assaulted while watching a movie in their theater is a possibility? There are bad people out there. If you allow bad people to attack others through your negligence, you are at fault. The courts will decide.

      I would argue that most public places are not secured in such a manner to prevent or discourage this type of incident. We pick the places with the greatest likelyhood of crimes (ex: courthouses) and work our way down. I guess movie theatres are becoming a place of concern. People are in a group, it’s dark, etc. Anywhere there is public access provides an opportunity for deviant behavior and I am not sure at what lenghts or costs we take to prevent it. I fear the day when someone goes beserk in a hospital.

    What is the website supposed to say? “Please note, all potential matches COULD be a sociopath that will try to kill you. Date at your own risk.”

    And Jack Landwehr, I think there is a big flaw in comparing the unfortunate incident with your wife to what happened to the woman in the article. Location. In your wife’s situation, yes, the theater should provide a safe place to watch movies. No one made this woman give that man her home address. (unless he followed her home during their 8 day “relationship.”) I would be curious to find out if match.com discourages people from meeting at home and encourages people to meet in public. If she did give her home address to this guy on her own accord and match.com advised against it…there you go…there is your warning.

      YES – as a match.com member – you are ALWAYS supposed to meet in a public place………….and use common sense. Men and women both have to be careful out there!!!

    You can no more hold Match.com liable for this than you can your local watering hole for meeting someone who is a potential criminal. She picked the individual. She proceeded to date said individual. She provided her address, NOT match.com. Throw it out.

    I too met a crazy guy on Match who beat me nearly to death. I was with him over a year and he was a liar and horrible person. I think we are going to start hearing a lot more of the on line dating horror stories. Being on line lets you pretend to be anything you want to. Real people meet people real time and don’t need to be on internet dating sites. The guy I was with did the same thing to 3 other woman he met on Match. I am not suing anyone, I am just glad to be alive and away from hi, If that lady won the lawsuit from McDonalds for spilling the hot coffee on herself, anything is possible. Internet Dating is Dangerous. I know, my life was nearly destroyed because of it. BE CAREFUL!!!!!!

    EHarmony would have detected this guy with predictive analytics.

    No person should have to go through what this lady endured, but through her on admission she believe that she was in a relationship after only 7(seven)days of knowing this man and on the 8th day she broke up with him. WHY? As a woman I would like to tell other women that their life has greater value than any attention, attraction, or affection given by a man/woman you only known a week. Women get a gripe it’s never to late to find the right person I found mine at age 45. In short Match.com is not liable.
