CALGARY -- Brian Widman's last romance ended badly.

The 27-year-old lonely heart, who says he's just looking for a friend to share his interests, ended his old relationship by choking 15-year-old Lorna Ulmer-Billy to death, because she tried to break up with him.

As well as enjoying camping and classic rock  Widman is the kind of filth who not only dates girls five years his junior, he's also a man who can't accept being dumped -- leading him to strangle Ulmer-Billy on June 3, 2006, following an argument in his apartment.

The lonely Coquitlam, B.C., killer is just one of the despicable jailbirds you'll find laying on the charm on Canadianinmatesconnect.com, hoping to land a girlfriend willing to pen letters, send photos and wait until some parole board loses its senses.

"He killed my daughter, and I'd be quite worried if I was the next woman he dates -- if he can do this to a 15-year-old girl and show no remorse, he'll certainly do it again if he's ever released," said Mary Ulmer, the victim's mom.

"It makes me sick to my stomach to see people like him getting access to this."
