With websites and apps such a Tinder, dating nowadays is at the tip of our fingertips. While some people like to date the good-old-fashioned way, others opt to find love with the help of technology.
Take Romeo, for instance...
He's an 11-year-old frog from Cochabamba, Bolivia in search of the Juliet who will make him a prince.
Yes, he too is in search of his one true love on a dating app. Romeo's story (and dating profile) has touched the hearts of many singles on Match.com after sharing his heartbreaking journey and love situation.
"I'm a Sehuencas Water Frog and, not to start this off super heavy or anything, but I'm literally the last of my species. I know - intense stuff. But that's why I'm on here - in hopes of finding my perfect match so we can save our own kind (no pressure ;))," his profile states. "
The profile adds: "I'm a pretty simple guy. I tend to keep to myself and have the best nights just chilling at home, maybe binge-watching the waters around me. I do love food, though, and will throw a pair of pants on and get out of the house if there's a worm or snail to be eaten! As for who I'm looking for, I'm not picky. I just need another Sehuencas like myself. Otherwise, my entire existence as we know it is over (no big deal). So, if you're willing to help an old Romeo find his one and only Juliet, donate to my cause so we can get out there and start the search for my one, true match!"
His dating profile was made by Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) in hopes to find this frog in extinction a mate. Biologists found the water frog 10 years ago in Bolivia.
“Romeo started to call for a mate about a year after he was brought into captivity, but those calls have slowed in the last few years. We don’t want him to lose hope, and we continue to remain hopeful that others are out there so we can establish a conservation breeding program to save this species," said Arturo Muñoz, founder of the Bolivian Amphibian Initiative and GWC associate conservation scientist, in a press release.
