Twitter has blown up with people rallying behind an unconventional Tinder romance.

The couple, Josh Avsec and Michelle Arendas, both Kent State students, matched on the dating app but never met because their “busy lives” were preventing them. They spent three years sporadically exchanging messages.

Arendas joked about why it took her so long to reply to the messages on the dating app.

The Tinder account tweeted that the match had to get together after the years they spent apart and gave them 24 hours to decide on a city to have their first date in. The app even said they would send the two to wherever they chose.

The match decided they wanted their long-awaited first date to be on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Not a bad choice. The app even made a joke about making sure the two don't take too long to pack. 

Many people on Twitter came together to support the match and encouraged them to start a relationship.

The moral of this modern-day fairytale is, according to Tinder, that good things come to those who wait and swiping right can lead to something amazing.
