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.

Get him to see that he’s torturing me (and I didn’t mean that to rhyme)
god. he just dosnt see.

I care so much about him. And worry about weather or not I make him happy. And he’s so closed up. I can’t read him at all. He gives me no signs. He never looks happy to see me. On our two month anniversarie he made plans to go out of town with his buddies. (He was free the next weekend, and the weekend before. and I know its only two months but it still hurt.) Do I have a right to be upset or am I overreacting?

know why hes ingoring me.
is he ignoring me? or does he just not care

It seems that my boyfriend doesn’t care about me. I see him almost every day. He never says hello first. We meet up in the park square allot. He lives closer to the square so he gets there faster then me, when he sees me walk up to him his expression doesn’t change. Our friends meet up there too. I am always the last one to get to the square, when he sees me coming, he doesn’t walk toward me, he doesn’t smile, say hello, or even bother to take a second to stop talking to his friends. Ill walk and sit next to him. And he will completely ignore me. I know he sees me, because he will look at me. But he ignores me until I say hello, and even when I say hello, I have to wait until he’s done with his conversation before I get an answer, or a hello back. The flip side, when he does say hello, he always gives me a big kiss. But then Im ignored again.
