Someone, or some hippo, is trying to slide into Fiona the baby hippo’s DMs.

After the dramatic, controversial conclusion of Arie Luyendyk Jr’s season of The Bachelor, we all need a simple love story, and Fiona and her new suitor are here to provide one.

On Thursday, Timothy, a hippo at the San Antonio Zoo, signed onto the park’s Facebook account to send his dream girl a love note.

“Dear Fiona, My name is Timothy. I recently moved out of my mom’s house to San Antonio and currently live with my grandma, Uma who I love very much,” the male hippo begins, giving Fiona some background on her admirer.

“Anyhoo, I have seen your pictures and videos on the internet at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and I think you are the most beautiful hippopotamus I have ever seen,” he adds later. “Perhaps we can meet someday and be boyfriend and girlfriend? I am single and available.”

Straightforward and sincere, Timothy seems to be a natural at this whole expressing your love thing.

The ball is now in Fiona’s court. She has yet to respond but we are hopeful that she is as entranced by this letter as we are.
