Watch Viral Tinder Couple Meet For First Time On Good Morning America

Josh Avsec and Michelle Arendas

This morning, the American students who traded messages on Tinder for three years without meeting in person met face-to-face for the first time on Good Morning America.

Josh Avsec and Michelle Arendas’ story went viral after Avsec posted their amusing dating app exchange on Twitter and it quickly generated over 31k retweets and 97k likes.

Tinder then jumped in on the story, offering the couple an all expenses paid trip to Hawaii to have their first date.

And the couple met for the first time this morning on Good Morning America before being whisked off to Maui, Hawaii.

Check out the video of their meeting below, and read Tinder’s head of marketing and communications Rosette Pambakian talk about the viral story here.
