Sometimes, it’s hard to find a person you connect with — particularly one whose schedule doesn’t conflict with your own. It’s natural to have a bit of back-and-forth when trying to meet up with somebody and grab a coffee or a drink. (Even though it’s pretty much the bane of my existence and there’s nothing I hate more than not being able to schedule a damn hangout.)
However, two people on Tinder are taking this phenomenon to an entirely new (and absurd) level.
Josh Avsec has been messaging a girl named Michelle on Tinder for roughly three years, perpetually joking about how they’re too “busy” to meet up.
Apparently, the whole fiasco started when Michelle took a full two months to respond to Josh’s ultra-smooth opener of “Hey Michelle.” Her excuse? Her phone died.
Um, sure it did, girl.
From there, the two started a running joke where they would message each other every few months, offering a purposefully lame explanation for their absence.
While it’s pretty clear these two aren’t hanging out anytime soon, it also seems like they’re somehow weirdly perfect for one another … ?
Josh shared screenshots of the messages to Twitter, where they quickly went viral, garnering over 14,000 likes and 2,600 retweets.
The internet was actually pretty impressed with how well these two seemed to “get” each other.
People are sincerely hoping it works out.
And you know what? Michelle actually replied to Josh’s tweet! Although, in her typical fashion, she admitted she would need several months to form a proper response.
Josh seemed pretty down with the whole thing, and told Michelle he would probably message her once the summer was over.
If you were looking for an accurate representation of modern-day, flaky digital romance, then look no further. This is officially it.
Here’s hoping these crazy kids manage to reconnect in a few decades. Perhaps then they’ll finally get their happy ending!
