This is a story about a would-be couple named Josh and Michelle.

They’re both in college. They’ve been talking on Tinder for YEARS (yep, YEARS) but they haven’t met in person yet. Check it out:

They may be procrastinators, but you have to admit that their banter is epic. Tinder got wind of this, and decided that not only did these two potential love birds need to meet, but they needed to meet in an amazing location.


While you got taken to the local dive bar on your last date, this pair will be headed to Maui to meet for the first time. Even if they don’t end up together, it makes for an amazing story. Good luck, Josh and Michelle!
