After three years of talking, a couple who matched on Tinder finally met in real life



Two Kent State University students who swiped right and found each other on Tinder in September of 2014 finally met in real life Tuesday.

Over the course of three years, Josh Avsec and Michelle Arendas would sporadically message one another on the dating platform, but had come up with plenty of excuses for not meeting up. The excuses ranged from "sorry my phone died" to "sorry was in the shower."

So finally, Avsec posted a photo of their messages to Twitter and Tinder responded, offering to send he and Arendas on a date to the city of their choosing.

Crazy, right?

Well, what's even more crazy is that they met for the very first time Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America" before heading to the Hawaiian island of Maui.

“This is a dream come true. I can’t believe I’m seeing her right now,” Avsec said on "Good Morning America."

On the show, Avsec said his sister met her fiance on Tinder. To that, Arendas replied with a smile: "No pressure!"

The two said it was too soon to say whether they could see a relationship in their future.
