Orlando, you have far too much free time on your hands. We need to find you a girlfriend, one with long legs and long eyelashes. Someone you can dance the samba with until the cows come home (for a long time). There's more to life than EMB!
Say, do you remember a song from the 1970s (early 1980s?) about finding a girlfriend for a friend? I don't think the band was the Beach Boys. The Eagles? Could be. It's a nice song, but the ending comes as a surprise. After this fellow tells his friend how great girls are and how much the friend needs a girl, he says something like "...and after we find one for you, we'll find one for me." Nice ending!
There was another "girlfriend" song about 1980 called, I believe, "My Girl Bill". The song was very controversal because it sounded like a gay singing about his girlfriend Bill. (Bill, of course, is a masculine name.) But...if you listened carefully at the end of the song, the singer was saying, "She's my girl.........Bill." In other words, he was singing to his friend named Bill about a girl, and he was not singing about a girl called Bill.
Orlando, after writing this, I'm thinking that I have far too much free time on my hands!
Have a great Christmas and New Year, buddy.
