Online dating sites offer the chance to find a soulmate. Or a stalker. Or allegedly both, as with this case out of Arizona. "I felt like I met my soulmate," says 31-year-old Jacqueline Ades, recalling a single date she had with a man she met on millionaire dating site Luxy. Unfortunately, he didn't feel the same way. Since the date last summer, police say Ades has sent the uninterested charmer some 65,000 text messages, including up to 500 a day—"to me it seemed like more," Ades says—containing violent threats and anti-Semitic sentiments, reports the Washington Post. Police say they surfaced after Ades' date viewed security footage of her taking a bath at his Paradise Valley home while he was out of the country on April 8. Police, who charged Ades with criminal trespass, say they found her car at the residence with a large butcher knife on the passenger seat.

Ades, who claims she only had "little floppy knives" for her protection as she "drove across America" from Florida, is alleged to have continued texting the man upon her release from custody. "Don't ever try to leave me … I'll kill you," one message read, according to a police report. In others, Ades allegedly said she'd wear the man's body parts and bathe in his blood, and called herself "the new Hitler," per the Arizona Republic. Now facing additional charges of stalking, threats, and harassment after allegedly showing up at the man's office claiming to be his wife, Ades spoke to reporters Thursday from a Phoenix jail where she's held without bond, saying that "love is an excessive thing." But she said she wasn't a threat to her one-time date. "No! Oh, my God, I love him so much," she said. (This Tinder user allegedly stalked firefighters.)
