You know the feeling of talking to a cute guy on Tinder who matched with you and having to wait weeks to hear a response. They eventually come around after deleting the app for a while and leaving you hanging. What the hell!?
A young Ohio couple began talking on Tinder, and have been at it for THREE YEARS. It all started when Josh Avsec messaged Michelle Arendas in September 2014. It wasn't until November that Michelle responded with the text "Hey sorry my phone died!" mocking the way people always make up excuses when they don't make the time to text you back.
It didn't end there, though. The two talked for a little and then again, there was a huge break lasting from November to January. The two continued to text back and forth for three years, each time making up excuses as to why they had taken so long to respond to the other. It ranged from:
Hey just saw this message, sorry I was in class.
Hey, sorry I was in the shower.
Hi I really do apologize for just now getting back to you, I've just had a busy week.
They have definitely defined what it means to "take things slow," and after Josh posted the convos on Twitter, everyone was shipping the two of them and asking them to get married. The caption he put on Twitter read:
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.
Everyone else wants the same thing. Twitter users were begging for the two to meet IRL, and even Tinder had to step in and get these two to meet. Tinder offered to send them both someplace, and the two chose Hawaii. The folks back at Tinder reached them via Twitter, writing:
It’s time you got together IRL. You have 24 hrs to decide the city you want to have your first date in and we’ll send you there! @mch_rnd
Then, Tinder did the most amazing thing ever:
People from all across the world are rooting for these two. They even got written about in a German publication. People in the UK are tweeting their support, and the world collectively seems to want to grab a seat at the restaurant they choose to meet at.
Everyone's heart melted when Josh tweeted on July 12,
My mouth is literally sore because I have been smiling nonstop for 3 days straight.
We'll have to sit back and see what comes of this. Their three-year joke has proven that good things truly come to those who wait.
