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.

really fall in love
Can Hardly Compare

He makes me feel alive. I feel at peace with him, and even comparing my previous relationships where I thought I was “in love” just seems silly compared to how I feel about him. We think similarly and are falling hard for each other.

take his virginity
First Day of Summer

I started my day off pretty innocently. Little did I know of the events that would transpire.
I’m in love with this boy. And after inviting him over to watch The Big Lebowski, we ended up rolling around in my bed… And we decided it was time. We put on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and I deflowered the boy, haha (I wasn’t a virgin). Good times were had by all.

fall in love again
Next Thing I Knew

I was falling in love with him while I was still in another relationship. I ended the first relationship as soon as my feelings became real for him- and didn’t regret it for a moment. I looked up at him and realized- “I’m falling in love with this guy.”
Next thing I knew I couldn’t imagine it without him.
