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.

lose my virginity

Yeah, not what I expected.(this post is explicit)

Well, what can I say. Been working as a bartender, girl came into the bar. She ordered a bunch of shots and flirted with me all night. We ended up in a dark corner and I got her number and kissed her. She left. I texted her, ended up at her house at 3am. I told her I was a virgin and it freaked her out just a little bit(she wasn’t sure if I was lying, and if I was lying-what I might be trying to pull). She got over it. Then came the weird part.
I figured my first time would be really quick. So I bought these Trojan condoms that have something that kind of numbs you so you last longer. I tried them out getting myself off and it seemed like I came even quicker. They were all I had though so I took them with me when I went to her place.
Turns out, I couldn’t cum. Well…if she had gone down on me without the condom I think eventually I would have cum. But after about three times making her cum with my cock, and a couple more in between with my mouth/fingers, she was exhausted and I hadn’t cum at all. Still…I think making her cum that many times was actually more important to me than my own orgasm. And for what it was worth I had a damn good time.
Afterwards, she told me she had a boyfriend who lived in her home country. I guess that’s kind of fucked up, to have your first time with someone else’s girlfriend. But oh well, I don’t know the guy, and he’ll hopefully never find out.
In conclusion, I don’t think everyone should go about losing their virginity this way, but for a 33 year old virgin like myself, it just needed to happen one way or another. I was just ready, and i don’t regret it one bit right now. It was a lot of fuckin fun, and if I die tomorrow at least I won’t die a frickin virgin:) Hopefully, I have lots of time to find someone special to “make love” to, and not just have sex. But now I have more confidence and I think it will be easier to put myself out there and find that someone.

it's pretty sad, really

I am going to be thirty this fall! I feel like I’m waking up from sleepwalking for close to a decade. I am a good-looking guy, no model or anything. I sing quite well, been on tours internationally. I’ve watched many a girl melt in front of me while I sang. This is not to brag, but actually quite the opposite. I think it makes me a bigger idiot for never having the balls to ask them out. I don’t know where I got this paralysing fear of rejection from. Anyway, its got to stop, cuz I’m going to go insane from desire.


I want to:
