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.

Fall in love (read all 11 entries…)
What the hell!!!

Hi everyone.

I met a new guy. About 3 weeks ago, I think. We’ve been talking non-stop and we get along great so far. We ended up realizing there’s some mutual attraction and he asked me out. I’ll be seeing him this weekend. The thing is I told him I’m not looking for anything too serious, more like casual dating or something. He said he was ok with that. People tell me I’ve been “using” him just because I don’t intend to stick with him in the long run. I’m not using him. I think hurting people on purpose is wrong. I’ve been very straightforward with him all along. Sigh. I simply don’t want to fall in love again. It’s too much for me. I think I like him too much as well. I know I’m gonna lose him anyway and I accept it, but it hurts alredy and it’s not even happening yet.


Why can’t you just be with him? Sounds like you are headed toward love.
