DescriptionTinder Couple Meets for the First Time After Three Years A Tinder couple who spent three years exchanging messages and putting off meeting finally came to face to face on live television on Tuesday. Josh Avsec, 22, and Michelle Arendas, 21, are both students at Kent State University in Ohio. They started speaking on Tinder after in 2014 and had been quietly exchanging messages without ever running in to each other for three years until Josh shared their story on Twitter earlier this month. His post went viral and caught the eye of Tinder staff who offered to set them up with a trip to a city of their choice in order for them to have their long overdue first date. But before jetting off to Hawaii, their chosen location, the pair appeared on Good Morning America to finally lay eyes on one another. For several minutes, the pair answered questions about themselves on each other on either side of a partition wall.
