Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Female friends

Do you think it is inappropriate to have a work friendship with the opposite sex?
No, at my work, there are mostly women and I have plenty of female friends.

Is it ok to take a walk with someone at work who is of the opposite sex?
My walking buddies have always been women and I walk nearly every day with one. My last walking buddy was also one of the ugliest woman at work.

Is it ok to have lunch with someone at work of the opposite sex?
There are many guys and girls at my work that have lunch together. My boss and a co-worker did laugh when a pretty woman was seen driving around with the head of the computer department. Ironically, my boss is a man and the co-worker was a woman and they were also in a car when they saw the pair.

nicolasc will be out of the picture a lot. Please don't take lack of response or reciprocation personally!

Have you seen the movie

Too Beautiful For You? It’s about exactly this. The wife is very gorgeous but distant, though they did a good job of not making her a caricature. She was still someone you could empathize with. An old movie,but a good one.

I have heard

that guys often have affairs with women that aren’t as attractive as their wives.

The point I was unsuccessfully trying to make is that I was going for a walk with a woman everyday and I had no intentions of anything other than going for a walk with her.

That’s exactly how I understood your answer to this posted question. As you just said…

I think you clearly made this point:
“My last walking buddy was also one of the ugliest woman at work.”
To clearly show that you were walking with people just cos you wanted to walk, and for no other reason.
