Unless your place of employment set you and the person you were dating up there is a big difference. Match.com is a paid service that is supposed to screen their members.

I don't think either of you should sue and I hope she loses the case or it gets thrown out.  I'm sure Match has terms and conditions that one agrees to when you sign up and they can't possibly be held accountable for the actions of their thousands (millions?) of users.  Anytime you date anyone whether you meet them online, through a friend, at a bar, at church and so on, there is a risk they may end up being crazy.  Life is inherently risky.

I'm sorry but if this guy doesn't have a record how does Match.com know he's crazy and wants to kill her. There is a risk in dating anyone, I guess. Meeting them online or on your own and then inviting them over can be dangerous. She didn't need a warning for that.

I do find it terrible that she was attacked though, but I don't think it's the sites fault.

I assumed it was rhetorical, but was just answering the question as posed.
