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.

Meandered through life straight to you.

I've been divorced for about 10 yrs. A couple times over the years, I did the online dating sites merely for entertainment. Ready to cancel subscription again, when I had one last message in my inbox. We talked, went out, then went out again, and again and again. Fourth or fifth week into seeing each other we realized we went to the same high school, graduated with the same class, had friends of mine who ran with friends of his, but we never met each other until now -- 28 years later.
