They met on Bumble. She claims he killed her dogs. Now she's speaking out to help others isolated amid COVID-19.


CHICAGO – Living alone with her two dogs, working remotely as a high school Spanish teacher and distancing from her parents due to COVID-19, Sarah Manos said she felt a little less lonely last April when the man she met on Bumble started buying her flowers.

But two months later, after the man tried to cut Manos off from friends and family and allegedly killed her two dogs, she discreetly packed her bags, fled to her parents’ house and called the National Domestic Violence Hotline, according to a civil suit Manos filed last week in Cook County circuit court.

“He wouldn’t have gotten his claws into me if I hadn’t been isolated,” said Manos, 27. County prosecutors did not charge the man, so Manos said she filed the lawsuit because she didn’t “want anyone else to suffer through what I went through. No matter how alone they make you feel, you truly are not alone.”
