Sorry girls, you cannot do without men

Keen newspaper readers probably saw an article about the bachelorette town of Noiva do Cordeiro in Brazil. According to Press reports, the town boasts 600-odd strikingly beautiful female residents aged between 20-35. They are lonely and seeking mates. That is what you call a bachelor’s dream paradise.

“I haven’t kissed a man for a long time,” 23-year-old Nelma Fernades is quoted as saying. “We all dream of falling in love and getting married. But we live here and don’t want to leave the town to find a husband,” she added.

Forced to marry

Now let us see how these women found themselves in the situation. Apparently, the unique town of Noiva do Cordeiro was founded in the late 19th century when a woman named Maria Senhorinha de Lima left the man she was forced to marry, for a man she loved.

Her action led her to be branded an adulterer in her hometown in Minas Gerais State. She was chased out of town after the Catholic Church excommunicated her and the next five generations of her family.

In 1891, she went to live away from the local population, and was soon joined by several other single women and single mothers. That is when they decided to isolate themselves from the outside world and founded the town of Noiva do Cordeiro.

Fast forward to today. The women are now desperate for men. The very creatures they have been running away from for over a century.

The story hammers home the point that a woman might pretend that she does not need a man, or even run away, but at the end of the day, her heart and body will ache for a man.

Hard fact

Therefore, the single, career women who go around telling everyone that they don’t need a man should stop lying to themselves. The hard fact is; every woman is wired to need a man.

Some women claim that the only reason they would need a man is for procreation but with the advent of sperm banks, they don’t need men any more. That, if you ask me, is a load of bull. I mean, what will she tell her child when s/he demands to see the father?

Wouldn’t it be sinful for a woman to lie to the child that his or her father died in a fatal road accident? Thing is, as some singer once sang and as the story illustrates, every woman is wired to need a man. It is always a matter of time, so when I hear some women make noise about how they don’t need men, I always understand their naivety. See, those Brazilians thought they would do without men, but who had the last laugh?

Before I bow out, for the bachelors out there who our proud-for-nothing women have ignored, you know where to look: Noiva do Corderio. Boy, catch a plane to Brazil and find the love of your life!
