Today's Wordle answer July 22

Today's Wordle answer is: TRYST.

A tryst is a private meeting between lovers, with some connotations that there's an illicit purpose behind all the secrecy.

And if you don't want to become the sworn enemy of the entire internet, be sure not to share spoilers for this Wordle answer until tomorrow!
