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.

Find someone who loves me for me (read all 3 entries…)
Full circle

I met this guy I’m currently dating back in 2008. He was my trainer and also had a girlfriend back in his home state. He moved to my state with his company to expand the business. I had a little crush on him, but decided not to tell him because of the circumstances. He later left the business and moved back to his state. I was heartbroken. Another co-worker who is also from his state later quit as well. She asked me to help her move back to her state. I did and we met up with my ex trainer for dinner/drinks. He still was taken so I couldn’t tell him how I felt.

We kept in touch through Facebook over the years,but communication came to a hault. I thought I ruined everything. Fast forward to this year. He got back on Facebook and contacted me out of the blue. It turns out he always loved me since the day we met, but he had to hide his feelings because of the circumstances. I was in total shock because he hid it so well. I love him too. We picked up where we left off as if we never had a day apart. We are taking things slow and are trying the long distance dating. I plan on visiting him soon to see how things are in person. I never thought I would have a chance with him. This shall be interesting to see how this turns out.
