CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Two Kent State University students who have never met in person have kept up a "relationship" on Tinder for about three years and everyone is cheering for them get together after BuzzFeed featured their story in a post that has gone viral

Michelle Arendas, 21, and Josh Avsec, 22, have never met in real life but they started talking three years ago on Tinder.  

The two clearly share the same sense of humor. BuzzFeed News reported that Avsec sent Arendas a message and months later she finally responded by saying "Hey sorry my phone died!" The joke continued for three years. Each one would wait months to respond with things like "Hey, sorry was in the shower." 

BuzzFeed picked up on the story after Avsec shared a screen shot of the "couple's" conversation on Twitter. 

Arendas, of course, responded in the most perfect way to his tweet. 

Since then, Twitter has responded by encouraging the two to actually meet and even get married. 

Since Avsec sent the initial tweet, the duo has exchanged phone numbers. 

Tinder also encouraged the couple to get together and offered to send them to a destination for their first date. 

They chose Maui. 

Follow Avsec's Twitter account and Arendas's Twitter account to see how their adventure turns out.
