Rogue✌ Oh shit, at least you tried.
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.

How I did it: I was just being me, all of me, and just being loving and helpful and kind for others and not expecting anything back.
I also kept high standards and knew what I wanted the most of things, going with my intuition and not going out with guys who (even though they might have been sweet) did not agree on the most crucial parts of my beliefs.
Then when I thought I would not find love, and actually did not care in the least bit, when I focused instead on other things, it found me!
Lessons & tips: You can find very nice people online, but you need to be very selective and ask probing questions and figure them out, be prepared for anything, and trust your intuition and gut instinct a lot!
How I knew he was the one for me, was that when I finally admitted that I liked him, he admitted the same as well, listened to every bout of mopey-ness I had, cheered me up, humored me, and all in all is like a wonderful friend to me!
That is one of the things that I valued highly, that the person who I loved would also be a great friend to me, and who would understand me inside and out, and even if he didn't understand, he was willing to.
So figure out what you value the most in a person, in your "one true love", what you value the most in general in people, people's actions to you, and look for them, stick by them, and use that as a way to eliminate the potential jerks.
Also! Don't sell yourself out to get a guy to like you! Don't change yourself in hopes to be the person that they will like. Don't undermine yourself! Just be the beautiful, wonderful you that you already are, comprimise a bit on the very minor issues, and stick to your values and ideals. And the right person will find YOU, and he/she will find you when you least expect it (meaning when you let your guard down, not evaluating people for what they could be to you, but just liking and respecting people for who they are)!
Resources: Believing in myself, loving who I am (ALL of who I am), letting my guard down and just being me (and only me, true to who I am) at all possible moments, and not actually looking for love. :)
And above all this quote:
"So many people look for the perfect person, and so few make themselves into that perfect person." - (I forget the author right now)
But basically I took from this the lesson of "don't look for your ideal person, instead become your ideal person, and your ideal person will find you!"
