Horrifying: Woman gets matched with James Holmes on dating site hours after Colorado shooting

James Holmes's profile on Match.com

Before James Holmes was arrested for the shooting that claimed 12 lives and wounded dozens of people in a Colorado movie theater, he was on the prowl for a girlfriend.

Holmes, 24, had profiles on both the dating website Match.com and the casual sex website Adult Friend Finder.

One woman told TMZ she was horrified to find that Match had suggested she connect with Holmes on Friday afternoon, just hours after he was arrested for the massacre during a midnight premier of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

The photo on his Match profile shows Holmes with the same dyed red hair he had during the shooting. In his profile, he lists himself as agnostic with “middle of the road” political views. Under favorite movies, Holmes wrote, “Too many good movies to have a
favorite, maybe Dumb and Dumber, Hachiko, Star Wars, etc.” He said his
favorite book is “Where’s Waldo?”

Holmes’ profile states he definitely wants kids. 

“You should message me if you’re interested, obviously. Or lookin’ for sexy times. Very nice!,” Holmes said in his profile, along with “Will you visit me in prison?”

The woman, Diana, who was matched with Holmes said it was “pretty scary getting matched to a mass murderer.”

Holmes also tried to reach out to three women on Adult Friend Finder before the shooting, and was reportedly rejected by all of them. One woman who said Holmes was “just looking to maybe chat … nothing sexual” told TMZ she didn’t respond to him because she just wasn’t that into him.

Holmes indicated in his profile that he was looking for casual sex, and possibly group sex.

In his first appearance in court this morning, Holmes sat expressionless,  except for brief moments when he closed his eyes. He will be formally charged in the shooting on July 30.
