When Mary Beckman found herself single after the death of her longtime partner in 2010, her friends eventually encouraged her to set up a profile on Match.com, a popular dating site (via the Daily Mail). Though she might have been reluctant to do so, she established an account with the site that uses the slogan “start something great” to tempt users to get matched with the millions of potential matches who use the service. While Match.com purports that they have made millions of successful matches, the man Beckman met through the app didn’t lead to a loving courtship that was capped off by a “happily ever after” ending to her tale. Rather, it resulted in a hellish nightmare that left the Las Vegas real estate agent stabbed, beaten, and left for dead.

Beckman was paired with a man named Wade Ridley. The two exchanged messages online and eventually agreed to meet in person. According to Beckman, the couple went on several dates before she eventually called the budding relationship off. She was turned off by his jealousy, and after 10 days, she sent him a text message saying that she just wasn’t feeling a connection. Subsequent text messages from Ridley went ignored by Beckman, and they eventually subsided. She had moved on from their brief encounters and figured that Ridley had done the same after he stopped texting her.
