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.

Hi, I kissed a woman for the first time in about 4 to 5 years.

So, no love.

Hi, at least until I move. I am not going to look, try, or even think about being in any type or relationship, only friendship. Well, I have not been in one in five years so no big deal right.

A question...

Hi, okay, maybe I am just reading into this to much, but, there is a woman I know, from work, who I kind of like. And I think she might like me. So, I just want to know if she does or not.

1: My job sends me all over town, so for a few days I was at one place where the woman was, but then I got shipped off to another store. But, she end up going to the same store. And we got to talking, and she did not want to stop talking (and neither did I), I know that is a good sign, but it might mean she could just think of me as a friend. But then she asked if I was going back to her store, and I told her I might soon but that I did not know. And she said “Well I hope to see you.”

I know I know, I sound like a dork, but hey she is beautiful, and funny, and smart. The only problem is I don’t think she thinks of me like that, and also if I where to go out with her I might lose my job… which that would suck. So, my question am I reading to much into this, or am I thinking clearly?

I suck.

Hi, My friend, my best friend, I missed her Text earlier in the evening. I just now got it at 1 am. When she sent it a few hours ago, and my stupid phone did not want to tell me!!! (I hate my phone). So she was lonely three hours ago, and I could do nothing for her because I did not know!!! And I feel like shit, because one she is my friend and that was a sucky thing of me to do. Two, I thought I only saw her as a friend now. This feeling, I can tell it is more than, damn I missed my friends text, its more like damn I missed HER text!!! Why do I still feel this way? I thought that I was only thinking about her as a friend….. Damn it. And then I feel guilty for thinking that!!! She is my friend, she was lonely and I was not there for her. But instead of just being woried about that I also worry about the feelings I have for her (and I feel selfish, I am selfish, I suck). I need some sleep, sorry everyone, talk to you later on Sunday.

Not so sad....

Hi, well I saw my friend today gave her her gift and helped her buy fish. And as I was leaving her, I did not feel as sad as I normaly would. I think I am over her. Finally. So, now I only see her as a friend. Which is good because we could never be anything more. So, I am not as sad anymore.

I am sad......

Hi, so I ask my best friend (who knows that I am in love with her) to go Christmas shopping with me Saturday. And she has not told me anything yet; and I keep checking my email like every few seconds trying to see if by any chance she has sent me a reply of any kind. And thus far, nothing, which makes me kind of sad. But what makes me feel pathetic is that I keep checking instead of excepting the truth which is she blew me off for her boyfriend. Which that is more than likly the truth. Which to be honest I don’t mind, I just wish I could have gotten an answer instead of I might be able to, or I might not, you know.

Why do I care? I mean honestly she is not my girlfriend and she told me she cant think of me that way, and yet for some stupid reason I cling to her like this. I feel so pathetic right now. I just need to go out and find a new girl, so that way I don’t feel so bad when I get blown off by her. Of cource this is easier said than done. I am not that good looking so, most women wont give me the time of day. And because of that they don’t get to know who I am, which kind of sucks because I would like to get to know some of the people around me in this world of ours. But, no such luck.

Not as bad as it could have been, but not as great as it could have been.

Hi, well, I told her, and she does not feel the same way, and cannot feel the same way. But we are still friends which is great. And I am happy that I was able to tell her, and I am happy just to be her friend.

Well, as I have said before that is my M.O. falling for the women that cannot fall for me. But no big deal, I still have a wonderful friend.

In a few hours.

Hi, I might be meeting her in a few hours. My hands are shaking, and it is getting harder to breathe. I have waited so long for this, and yet now I am scared it might happen.


Hi, that is when I find out weather I am meant to be with her or not, because tomorrow she might be out of my life forever, or in it forever. Tomorrow I tell her. I tell her everything, about how much I love her and everything. Here goes nothing.

I smiled.

Hi, every time I saw the grass, the trees, the sky today I thought of her, and I smiled. I think my co-worker thinks I am nuts, but I could not help it. It’s funny, my co-workers keep pointing out women that they think are “hot” and to me, the fail to compare, no offence ment but I am in love. Now, if only she thought the same about me. Maybe she does, I don’t think so, but one can hope, right? I don’t really care because today I smiled.
