Six Words to Describe the State of Your Love Life


Remember when that Six Word Memoir thing was going around the internet a couple years back? That was fun. Let’s do something similar, but focused on relationships (either past or present). I’ll start:

Damn! Married five years this month.

That’s seven years total washing boxers.

A blind date success story then…

Wooed me with a Kabbalah story.

(He made me laugh). Plus, wine.

30 cross-country flights pre-move.

Waited five months before I unpacked.

Well, I had to make him sweat.

Sidewalk chalk proposal in Central Park.

We had our wedding there too.

Conceived Jackson there also. Just kidding.

Sometimes we call ourselves the Condellberries.

The Brita is mostly filled by me.

But he does bring me flowers.

And wine too. He’s no dummy.

Better, since getting a king size.

Best friends, good teamwork, hot love. Not necessarily always in that order.

TheLadyE Elisse July 7, 2014, 1:32 pm

Still waiting on the right one.

Pleasantly surprised to fall in love.
With my best friend’s cousin, AOK.
I had known him for years.
First night we talked for hours.
All about nothing and everything simultaneously.
And that is how I knew.
Life would never be the same.

Partner in crime, love life together.

Looking for work can be tough.
Watching him struggle is much harder.

We met while working at Wegmans. He worked pizza; I was cashiering. Saw each other at a bar. Dating ever since and super happy.

He’s Portuguese. I don’t understand him.

Met freshman year, dated years later,
First kissed in a fraternity stairwell,
went home with him (don’t tell).
Saw him again in Irish bar
Impressed him ordering a whisky ginger
Made my move playing card games
Got engaged in Fenway Park stands
Married in DC, honeymooned in Belize,
Moved south to start our lives.
Can’t wait to see what’s next!

One month married today, bright future

avatar Marcie July 7, 2014, 2:25 pm

He’s the best I can imagine.

I absolutely, positively love the uniform. ;)

Lyra Lyra July 7, 2014, 5:47 pm

Amazed by his respect and chivalry.
Always willing to go on adventures.
Puts up with my ridiculous stubbornness.
Accepts me as crazy cat lady.
Holds doors open and carries stuff.
Picks me up in his uniform.
The dress whites are so hot.
Love getting lost in his hugs.
Dad and best friend love him.
Excited about what is to come!

Man who changed my life forever.
Took my hat, rest is history.
Comfortably content, having lots of fun.

I knew from the first date.
We laughed until the cafe closed.
Both of our cars got towed.
So much for a short meeting.

Addie Pray Addie Pray July 7, 2014, 3:57 pm

Me too, but I was wrong.

avatar Kay July 7, 2014, 3:19 pm

Non-preppy in preppy world. Help.
Too busy studying. Try again later.
Married men need lives, not me.
Right now, by myself, perfectly content.

avatar Christy July 7, 2014, 3:24 pm

Grad school: diploma, job, girlfriend. Awesome.

So many books. So, so many.

They camped, and she watched futbol.
