109-Year-Old Woman Reveals The Secret To Life Is Avoiding Men

Would you rather live to 108 and work all your life without men or a shorter life with the companionship of the opposite sex? Jessie Gallan chose the former and said avoiding men and eating a warm bowl of porridge every morning is what contributed to her 109-years on earth, according to Wide Open Country.

“They’re just more trouble than they’re worth,” she told Daily Mail.

Gallen says she’s been on her own ever since the age of 13 when she left home and found work milking cows.

“I worked hard and seldom would I ever take a holiday,” she said.

Jessie worked all her life, never married and didn’t rely on anyone but herself to survive.

“She’s absolutely amazing,” her caregiver at the nursing home said. “For 108, she’s still mobile as you see, and she’s still got all her wits about her and she’s got an amazing memory. She has some amazing friends here at Crosby House and not just the residents but the staff too.”

Though she retired from work, Jessie remained quite active and would regularly go to church and exercise class. Unfortunately, after her interview on her secret to long life she passed away in Aberdeen, Scotland in March 2015 at the age of 109.
