An ugly crime to be sure. Match.com may protest its innocence and the unfairness of the lawsuit, but they won't jeopardize the cash cow with an actual civil trial. There will be a quiet little settlement with lots of forms and NDAs for her to sign. Can't say she doesn't deserve at least that much. The site can definitely afford it. What it can't afford is a legal precedent of culpability.
Universal background check for dating would have prevented this tragedy.
I have a few friends that have met people online and dated for awhile, or got married and were happy.
I don't troll for dates online because I don't know them, don't know if they're ax murderers or rapists... I also don't stand on the top step of ladders with no support, run with scissors, or do so many other things that I've been warned not to do by disclaimers and stickers all over the items. That's because I possess something called "common sense."
But this woman obviously has no common sense. Then again, she's a realtor so she's already proven that. All Match.com has to do is to stand up in court and point out that she's a realtor and they've won.
