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.

I've never spoke, "I love you."

by koomah on September 29, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

It's true, have never verbally said, "I love you." to anyone. When I say something, I want to really mean it or I don't say it. There has never been anyone in my life I could say, "I love you." to and actually mean it. It's probably a good thing that I don't want to make the phrase "I love you." meaningless like many other people often do... but, it's also disappointing that there is nobody I could say this to. Regardless of whether or not they returned the message or feeling.
