SixContest #69: #LoveAdviceIn6Words

Each February, the calendar cues us to embrace romance. For SixContest #69 (just a ​​coincidence​, we promise​), we want to know​, in six words,​ how you find love or stay amorous​.​ Do your insights come from the heart (“​He still needs me at 64​.” –​Armistead Maupin) or somewhere raunchier (“Passionate arguments lead to passionate sex” ­–Toni Esperanza Chadwell)? Or does Valentine’s Day bring out your adventurous side (“My stockings look better on him.” –Renee Guillory)? ​Look into your heart and soul—and slay us with your #LoveAdviceIn6Words.

[Ed. Note: Post your entry in the comments section and one winner will receive a copy of our latest book, "The Best Advice in Six Words."]

Need inspiration or a unique Valentine’s Day gift? Check out our books, "The Best Advice in Six Words" and "Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak" (

Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please post only one entry per comment.
