Under Match.com's "Terms of Use Agreement," it clearly states that the company is not liable should you have a date with death.

"They had apparently been dating for one or two months, so it's not as if she broke the obvious safety rules like going somewhere alone with him on a first date.THE COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT ANY CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK OR OTHER SCREENINGS (SUCH AS SEX OFFENDER REGISTER SEARCHES), AT ANY TIME AND USING AVAILABLE PUBLIC RECORDS." Still, clinical psychologist Dr.Chloe Carmichael said even Charlton's criminal background was not enough to make an assertion he was a real threat — and that the public shouldn't be quick to point the finger at online dating.It's unclear whether she knew about his criminal history of misdemeanor violence, but even if she did, it would not be reasonable to think that would be a tip-off that he's a depraved killer.” "For example, it's not uncommon for a man who has a history of violence with other men in bar brawls or other disputes to be completely appalled at the idea of striking a woman," she added.

While it may be difficult to detect who is a dangerous threat, dating sites like Match.com, which has partnered with the National Cyber Security Alliance, offer a detailed list of online safety tips — but ultimately, it's a matter of dater beware. Don’t agree to be picked up and don’t feel pressure to go anywhere else from that place, or do anything else with that date at that time so you can get a better sense of that person.” But in the case of Lyne, it’s so far unclear how well she knew Charlton, and how much time they'd been together before their Friday date.But the apparent murder and dismemberment of Ingrid Lyne, a 40-year-old Seattle-area mother of three, has sent shockwaves throughout the cyber-romance world, with many begging the question: Is anyone safe?
