A lively New York City woman who turned 100 Thursday described a “love” for “big men” as the secret to her long life, reports New York Daily News.

From the New York Daily News:

Caridad McKiver, who turned 100 Thursday, said the secret to a long life is love and finding a big man who you can rest on at night.

“It’s love that got me here,” she said during a birthday bash at an Upper East Side nursing home. “I like big men. They are sweeter, more passionate and patient,” she added.

The spunky senior, who wore a tiara to celebrate the big day, has been single since her 6-foot, 185-pound husband, William, died in 1986…McKiver, who lived in East Harlem, walked to her job as a nurse’s aide at Mount Sinai Hospital every day for 25 years.

McKiver turned the big 100 after Tulsa Race Riot survivor and Oklahoma civil rights fighter Olivia Hooker marked her 102th birthday on Feb. 12, reports The Journal News via USA Today.

    came to mind was the male anatomy
