Three years ago, Michelle and Josh swiped right to match on Tinder white they were both studying at Kent State University in the US. They've been texting sporadically since then, but they had never met -- until now!
Josh described it as being a 'dream come true' when he finally had the opportunity to meet Michelle in person on Good Morning America.
How unreal is this moment - talking online for 3 YEARS and meeting for the first time EVER right here in Times Square ❤️😭 pic.twitter.com/Vu7ppfBpSs— Good Morning America (@GMA) July 25, 2017
Their unconventional pursuit for romance went viral after Josh tweeted a screenshot of their conversations, spanning over several years.
"I didn't even know Michelle's last name until the day after I posted it, and a friend of a friend commented and tagged her on it."
Social media users have been gunning for them to meet since then, and it finally happened this week!
The pair were also sent to Hawaii for a trip, which was offered to them by Tinder.
