A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Do you miss me or sex?

by Lindseyann410 on February 24, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I was seeing this guy (my friend's brother) for awhile, and he broke it off soon after he found out he was being called back to the middle east. The end was a little ugly. Then I had to see him at his sister's wedding a couple months before he left with his new girlfriend. I moved on, but I still cared about him. Now, two years later, he's back. I get random texts that he wants to reconnect. As what? Who knows.
