3-Year-Long Joke Conversation Between Strangers On Tinder Goes Viral And They’ll Finally Meet
The year 2014 seems like so long ago. That was way back in the days when Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, ice bucket challenge, and Ebola were front page news. Those were the days when Josh Avsec matched with Michelle Arendas on Tinder and started a wonderfully bizarre and lengthy conversation. Three years later, the Ohio Kent State University seniors have yet to meet, but are still talking on Tinder with a very funny and sloth-paced tête-à-tête.
Josh started the conversation with a simple, “Hey Michelle” on September 20, 2014. Then Michelle responded over two months later with, “Hey sorry my phone died!” After a quick back-and-forth, Josh stopped talking and then gave Michelle a taste of her own medicine by replying two months later, which started a hilarious trend in the convo.
Michelle finally responded on Twitter on the viral post but said, “sorry I’d reply but I need to give it a few months!”
After a whirlwind of shitty excuses after shitty excuses, Tinder finally stepped in to hook up these two strangers. “It’s time you got together IRL,” the official Tinder Twitter account stated. “You have 24 hrs to decide the city you want to have your first date in and we’ll send you there!”
Josh, 22, and Michelle, 21, were able to both decide on Maui, Hawaii and it didn’t take three months to make a decision.
You can’t even keep a relationship alive for three weeks and these two people keep a Tinder convo going for over three years AND get a free fucking vacation to Maui.
