Mary Kay Beckman, 50, claims in a lawsuit filed earlier this month that she joined the website looking for a "healthy loving relationship," but instead was nearly killed. Beckman says she went on a few dates in October with Wade Ridley, but after ending the relationship came home one day to find him in her garage with a knife. Ridley "brutally stabbed [Beckman] 10 times with a knife about her head, face and upper body, until the overwhelming force he applied to the stabbing caused the knife to break," according to court documents. According to her lawsuit, Ridley then "stomped and kicked" her in the head until she "stopped making the gurgling noise" and left her for dead. A neighbor found Beckman and she was rushed to the hospital where she endured multiple surgeries over several weeks. While Beckman was in the hospital, Ridley was arrested for the murder of an Arizona woman, also an ex-girlfriend.
