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.
Hahahaha one day I'm going to meet this girl and it's going to be epic. Look at the dates of our tinder texts. pic.twitter.com/DASQK4c5cX— Josh Avsec (@Wes_03) July 8, 2017
Arendas joked about why it took her so long to reply to the messages on the dating app.
sorry I'd reply but I need to give it a few months !— Michelle Arendas (@mch_rnd) July 8, 2017
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.
After a long debate over your unbelievably generous offer, our dream first-date would be in Hawaii. Meet you in Maui?? @mch_rnd— Josh Avsec (@Wes_03) July 11, 2017
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.
