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.

For many years now I have found myself hugely attracted to married men. I like that they are older and I like the idea of them being a good husband and father and being dedicated to his family. It is sort of counterintuitive because simply by having an affair with me he kills that moral, wholesome quality I first found attractive, but somehow I still want to try it out. I kind of want to be someone’s long term mistress and he can put me up in a swank penthouse in new york city and I can have other boyfriends and his family will never know about me, but we will have hot passionate sex and occassionally go on clandestine vacations together. He will be super rich and buy me everything I want and he will be the love of my life, but we can never be together. How sadly romantic and mysterious.
