When you match with someone on Tinder the done thing is to send them a message, so that's exactly what 22-year-old Josh Avsec did when he found himself matched with 21-year-old Michelle Arendas, but little did he know how long he'd have to wait for a reply.
Two months later Michelle responded with the classic “Hey sorry my phone died!,” and the rest is history. Not to be outdone Josh then responded with “Hey sorry was in the shower,” some two months later and the pair have been messaging each other back and forth ever since, sometimes taking 10 months to reply!
Three years later and the two of them are still messaging each other every now and then even though they've still never met, but all of that's set to change after Josh shared his story on Twitter and the internet couldn't get enough of it. Eventually Tinder themselves stepped in and offered to pay for the two of them to go away together to a city of their choosing, the only catch being they had 24 hours to decide. You can follow both Josh and Michelle on twitter to see how it turns out.
