That Viral Tinder Couple Finally Met in Person for the First Time and It Was Adorable

In case you were in need of a sign that Tinder is good for something other than awful pickup lines and fuckboys, the couple who went viral on Twitter after flirting via Tinder for over three (!!!) years, finally met in real life - and it will give you hope for dating apps.

Kent State University students Michelle Arendas and Josh Avsec matched on Tinder three years ago, and began a hilarious back-and-forth of replying to each others' messages weeks and even months late with excuses like, "Sorry, I was in the shower." (Lol.) Even though they went to the same school, they never actually met over the course of the whole thing - until now.

The couple appeared on Good Morning America on Tuesday, where they met for the first time. (A next-level first date am I right?) Before meeting, they were interviewed on either side of the wall to figure out if they had anything in common. (FYI, they both love Netflix-bingeing The Office, because who doesn't?) From there, they were also asked the v pressing question of why they never decided to meet.

"I was committed to my joke,” Michelle told GMA. “I loved the fact that we had a similar sense of humor, so I was not going to be the one who gave in and gave up that great joke we had." Fair point, but three years you guys? Really?

When the show finally allowed them to meet, it was nothing short of adorable, obviously. Their next date? Tinder is sending them to Maui to finally give them the opportunity to get to know each other - and TBH my faith in dating apps has been entirely renewed.
