COX MEDIA GROUP - July 13 - Tinder is sending a pair of procrastinating college students who have never before met on a date in Hawaii, three years after they started messaging each other on the app. Josh Avsec and Michelle Arendas started messaging in Sep 2014 and have continued sporadically ever since. Avsec thought Arendas seemed "different" from other girls he had been matched. He sent her a message that simply said, "Hey Michelle," in Sep 2014. "Hey sorry my phone died!" Arendas replied two months later, kicking off a running gag that has continued for three years. Back and forth the pair messaged, each time with excuses to explain why it had taken so long to write. Avsec posted a screenshot of their running conversation on Twitter last week. Tinder took notice. "We're sending you to Maui, but you can't take two years to pack your bags!" Tinder wrote in a tweet.
