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.

I find myself in the most beautiful situations...

This weekend I was talking to an old friend and he kept trying to hook me up with a current, mutual friend, who I sort of liked in the past. But he kept asking me all these questions about what I look for in a guy and I really couldn’t give him a straight answer. A couple of the guys there said they love legs and lips and other physical features about women… I know I’m attracted to intelligence, someone I can have a decent conversation with, but other than that, I really don’t know. I like a lot of things about people… on some guys I like a shaved head, on others the shaggy look. Some guys I like are super smart and others are the funny guy of the group…

What I’m wondering is, I guess, is if it is bad to not know what I want specifically or is it better? I can see it both ways, I mean, I don’t want to have too high of expectations, but I don’t want mine to be so low that I fall for anyone. So what is the happy medium, or is there even one at all?
