Online dating can be a great way to meet people that you wouldn't really have the opportunity to stumble upon in real life, and it can also make things way easier for you if you're shy and can't approach strangers in real life since texting is much simpler and easier than spontaneous conversations in the real world. Once you start dating online you have to keep in mind that you're taking some huge risks by exposing yourself like that and you might meet some really dangerous people that will try to hurt you and in this case even end your life...

This divorced, 40-year-old nurse and mother of three made headlines when she went missing on April 8, 2016. Ingrid Lyne was headed out for a fun night and was looking forward to the baseball game that her and her date were planning to attend. Her kids were spending the night at their father’s house. Her date John Robert Charlton had other things in mind for her. Once the game ended, he drove her back home. He told police that he was so intoxicated that Friday night that he can’t remember what happened. Parts of Ingrid were found days later. Flesh, blood and a 15-inch saw were found in her bathroom. Less than three miles from where they attended the game, parts of Ingrid’s dismembered body were found as well. Her head, arm and leg were wrapped in a plastic bag and stashed in a recycling bin. Charlton told police that he was “not a normal person” before asking for an attorney. TC mark

On October 10, 2008 John Brian “Johnny” Altinger, 38, was getting ready for his first date with a woman he found on the dating app PlentyofFish. He was so excited to meet her that he told his friends. Shortly thereafter, John’s friends received some strange emails, explaining that the woman he met was taking him on a long vacation to Costa Rica. John’s boss received a resignation letter by email. Little did anyone know that the woman John met was actually—a man. Drawing inspiration from the hit TV show Dexter, Canadian Mark Twitchell was convicted of first-degree murder in 2011. He had lured John into a garage using a fake profile and murdering him soon after.
