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.

Bucket List #3(no particular order): Find a Husband

The dating scene is not alluring to me. I’ve been single since November 2011 and find myself missing the comfort of a relationship. I was in the last one for 4 years. Granted the relationship was no where near perfect and he was not someone I saw as marriage material. I felt some comfort in sharing certain parts of my life with only one person. I don’t like the dating experience. I guess I am a serial relationship haver…
Since I was14, the shortest relationship I have had has been 1.5 years the longest 5. I am now 26.

I am now also tired of being in relationships with place holders. From this day forth, I will not be in a relationship with someone out some twisted sense of comfort. It seems destined for failure, when I enter in a relationship with that underlying issue. I’m seeking a husband. Wow. And I used to feel so against marriages. I always felt that one of the partners would be unfaithful. Or better yet, somehow magically “fall out of love”. Maybe I wasn’t against marriage, I was just scared of it. Scared that partner left in love would be me. Its hard enough finding someone that holds to their word when you’re dating or bf/gf.

Well, I’m waiting.. on him. Not really looking, but no longer dropping the welcome mat for passersby. I think the saying goes…. or something like this..” A woman looks for a husband, a man finds a wife.”



Just droping you a line to see how you are going with your goal? I read your post and was woundering where you currently reside?
