A pair of US college students have finally met on live television before jetting off to Hawaii for a week's holiday together after one of the most 21st Century starts to a relationship in memory.
In a three-year conversation that has set hearts aflutter across the world after being shared on social media, Michelle Arendas, 21, and Josh Avsec, 22, started a personal joke that has stood the test of time and attracted scores of fans.
Beginning with a standard "Hey Michelle" on Septermber 20, 2014, the conversation didn't really get going until November 28 of the same year - more than two months on, when Ms Arendas offered an explanation.
"Hey sorry my phone died!"
After joking about why it took her so long to charge her phone, the conversation fell flat again for another two-and-a-bit months - until Mr Avsec responded with an excuse of his own.
