This beetle has a boyfriend and is having a better Valentine's Day than we are

Jealous.

Generally, beetles aren't at the top of our list of relationship goals.

Generally, beetles don't tend to be in relationships at all and yet here we are - wishing we had someone who treats us with as much respect and love and affection as this beetle treats her boyfriend.

Sure look, what can you do?

When you hit rock bottom the only way to go is up.

The beetle in question is called Sally and she's in a very loving relationship with Spike the stag beetle.

Today, Sally's owner filmed her very slowly bringing Spike a flower to mark Valentine's Day.

It was both emotional and impressive.

There she goes there now - on her way to make someone's day.

So thoughtful. So kind.

When the video was originally posted, many people thought the beetle was Spike because, believe it or not, Spike actually has quite a following on Twitter.

He may be a beetle but he draws things, walks around the place, and essentially does lots of other things that pets and humans can do.

Bless.

Spike may be a lot bigger than Sally but that doesn't mean that their love hasn't been able to flourish.
