What can be worse than being single in the New Year? Watching a frog make headlines for finding his soulmate and making lavish Valentine's Day plans with her.
Turns out, the 'World's Loneliest Frog', Romeo isn't so lonely anymore as he has finally found his girlfriend aka soulmate in Juliet.
For 10 long years, Romeo (a Sehuencas water frog) had been living in isolation at the Museo de Historia Natural Alcide d'Orbigny in Bolivia. But, thanks to a team of scientists, who played cupid, Romeo found a female mating partner. Seriously, where can we sign up to get such a dedicated team to find a soulmate for us as well?January 16, 2019
Anyway, the reason such efforts were made is that Romeo is said to be the last one of its kind. This sent the conservationists into panic mode and they started looking for a mating partner for him, in order to save the species from becoming extinct.
When we were busy swiping left and right on dating apps, the conservationists were making a profile for him on Match.com. Maybe, it's time to uninstall Tinder.January 16, 2019
The frog not only has a dating profile, but he's also quite popular on social media.January 10, 2019
Reportedly, people even raised $25,000 to send an expedition team to the cloud forests in Bolivia to find more frogs of his kind and finally, they found one and named it Juliet. January 15, 2019
Romeo, now probably the world's happiest frog, even tweeted about his new found love. What's more, Romeo and Juliet are set to go on a blind date on Valentine's Day next month.January 15, 2019
Twitter has all sorts of reactions about this love story. While some are genuinely happy for Romeo and Juliet, others are plain jealous that even a frog has Valentine's Day plans and they don't.

All you single people complaining you'll never find someone — if this frog can wait 10 years for a mate, YOU can make it. ðð» https://t.co/9jD2nMJsoe— Sophie ð (@thatgingeRNurse) January 17, 2019

A literal frog has a date for Valentine's Day and I can't even get a text back.. Ok. https://t.co/aJCn7SSd8X— heidi (@leshay_heidi_) January 17, 2019
I'm happy for this frog species. Conservation is a great thing. However, do any other single humans find it a tiny bit depressing that a frog will have a date on Valentine's Day while the rest of us are at home still single? Guess we can all live vicariously through Romeo. https://t.co/3FEmhsfT5c— Aimee Hicks (@ahicks83) January 18, 2019
So a frog is going to have a better Valentine's Day than me this year
Happy 2019... https://t.co/Ewt7aEHNAa

While the frog is tweeting about his girlfriend, we still continue to be the 'world's loneliest humans' and February 14 will basically be another 'Netflix and chill' day.
