This Guy Couldn't Afford A Bouquet So He Cut Flowers Himself And Duct Taped Them

by Candice Jalili

Zach, 17, and Samantha, 18, are a young couple from Illinois. They also happen to be your newfound relationship goals. Allow me to explain.

The couple have been together for two years now, and Samantha told Buzzfeed that, over time, Zach has become her "best friend."

That being said, Zach is a "full-time student and athlete," so Samantha "doesn't expect much" from her man in the gifts department.

But the other day, our boy Zach decided to exceed his girl's expectations and surprise her with a beautiful, homemade flower bouquet — one that he didn't have to pay for.

"He picked them out for me from his yard and from a nearby field," Samantha told Buzzfeed. "I thought it was super sweet and creative. I honestly preferred it more than anything store-bought."

Zach even found a budget way to keep the beautiful flowers together: duct tape!

For no money at all, he managed to create a beautiful bouquet for his girlfriend, and she couldn't have loved it any more.

"It's not always about what he can buy you, or how much money a man has," Samantha said. "All I truly care about is spending my time with him. He's become my best friend over time, and I'm super happy I have him to spend my days with."


Needless to say, Twitter is going nuts over this gesture of love.

The duct tape touch really got them going.

If these two don't end up together, I'm honestly worried about their fans.

Obviously, some people had to make some flower thief jokes.

Illegal or not, I think we can all agree this dude loves his girlfriend, and his way of showing it was pretty dang cute.

Here's to hoping boys across the nation are taking notes from Zach and doing whatever they can to show their girlfriends how much they care!

Seriously, thanks to Zach, your guy really has no excuse now.
