A few minutes later, she got a reply from Richie’s friend Chris, who said Richie had been in a car accident.

Chris sent Missi a picture of Richie in a hospital bed, looking a little banged up but grinning gamely for the camera.

Missi felt a wave of relief, both that Richie was okay and that her suspicions were unwarranted.

Richie told her he was on vacation in Hawaii, but they planned to meet up as soon as he got back.

A few days later, when he was supposed to pick her up for their first date, Richie was nowhere to be found, and he wasn’t responding to her texts, either.

Among all the duds—the desperate and depressed and not-quite-divorced—a 45-year-old man named Richie Peterson stood out.

He was a career naval officer, an Afghanistan veteran who was finishing his doctorate in political science at the University of Minnesota.

Richie had lingering medical problems from his time in the service, and Missi was constantly having to drop him off at or pick him up from the hospital.

He was always canceling plans, or not showing up when he was supposed to.

Missi sat in her living room, alternately furious at him (for letting her down) and at herself (for getting her hopes up enough to be let down). He’s probably at home, hanging out with his wife and kids,” she says.
