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.

"Then I should divorce". He said.

Ok. So you meet this guy. Casually. He takes off his ring. You notice. But you already liked him. You decide to enjoy the night. He says "you're picture perfect". You say: "I'm not going to be your mistress, not your girlfriend. I don't want to be second, I don't want to be first. I want to be the one". And this memoir was his response. Honestly, I think he just wants a mistress. Definitely not tempting. At least not for me.
