Residents of the US town of Boring have voted in favour of pairing with the Perthshire village of Dull.
The community of Dull are confident they will now become a "sister community".
Dull, in Perthshire, and Boring forged an unlikely link when Elizabeth Leighton, who lives in Aberfeldy, near the Scottish village, was on a cycling holiday in the US.
She passed through Boring, Oregon, and immediately phoned her friend Emma Burtles, a resident of Dull, with an idea to link the two communities.
Mrs Burtles contacted Dull and Weem Community Council as well as Steve Bates, chairman of the Boring Community Planning Organisation, to discuss the possibility of twinning the communities.
Boring decided for the move in the interests of trans-Atlantic relations, tourism and humour, after being approached by residents in Dull.
The decision means both places can sell novelty tourist items, get quirky road signs made and plan exchange visits.
Differences in the towns mean they cannot be twinned, as Boring has a population of more than 10,000, to Dull's 84 residents.
Dull's main businesses are guest lodges and chalets, aimed at the tourism market, as well as Highland Safaris, which operates out of the village.
Boring is said to be "quite an industrial place".
Officials in Boring, which is six hours behind the UK, are set to vote on Wednesday on whether they can be officially linked.
Marjorie Keddie, chairman of Dull and Weem Community Council, said they were likely to hear the news of their decision by early morning.
A celebratory street party has been planned for Saturday June 23, to which all of Dull's residents will be invited.
Mrs Keddie said: "The party will show that we are neither dull nor boring.
"We are also excited at the prospect of a new road sign, which will say something like 'Dull, in association with Boring' or 'in sisterhood with Boring'.
"I'm sure it will stop a few people in their tracks for photos."
