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.

How do I explain this one?

The majority of my family believes two things about me, that I'm a girl and that I'll only date girls. Well I uh am now dating a boy (kinda a shock to me too) and he's gay, very blatantly so.

My sister knows and started laughing, my dad and step-mom on the other hand I have a feeling won't be as understanding... and I'm not exactly the best at hiding this kind of thing.
