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.

Kiss in the rain
A question about this goal: how do i make it perfect, and memorable? December 30th, 2006 20:55


Just…make him remember it…and make him want more lol…just grab the back of his head…and stare him in the eyes and just give him one small kiss. its gunna make him want more and turn into those kind of kiss’s that you see on movies! its great! and dont be shy to do it :)

myra loves the winter

yeah well, i did and it was good lol i mean really good. but it would be even more romantic if it was him doing that!

lol if u want him to kiss u instead of u making the move…give him hints like…hold his hand…make sure not to stand too far away and maybe ask him to help u with an earing or something so he’s close…then turn ur head…give him a cute little smile (but dont show ur teeth) just a flirty one stare into his eyes…and he should get the point and kiss u lol

myra loves the winter

and have you tried it?...both ways? lol


If you made the first move then it is still romantic.
When it happened to me we were already kissing (at Trafalgar Square) and I could see it was about to rain and I said we should leave but she made it clear we shouldn’t leave and I’m glad she did that. The relationship still didn’t last but that night still lives in my memory.
I’m a little drunk but I hope that helped.

In my opinion, you can’t MAKE something perfect and memorable—it just has to be. The harder you work at making something special, the more it will feel “forced” and artificial.

And as far as getting someone to do something, I just don’t think it’s ever the same when you “get them to do it” compared to if they just know, and just do it… which will only happen if you hold out for the right guy instead of settling.

just make sure its the right time..and make sure the romance is there :-)

it has to be unplanned, I just has to happen…

You have to start kissing before the rain starts. My advice would be wait until the weather forecast for your area is rain-showers, then not lot your boyfriend have “any” for a while. Then while out on a date, drag him outside for a walk.

When you smell ozone (the smell that comes just before it starts to rain) turn to him and seduce him with your eyes. He should then initiate a kiss, and hopefully you’ll still be kissing when the rain starts!

Alternatively, you could go for the “mad dash in rain to car” trick. Fall over on the way, and when he bends over to pick you up, kiss him passionately. You’ll both end up very wet, but it will be romantic and funny too.

You know what will make it the most memorible…..

Dont Plan It…. ;)

Make it a spur of the moment thing….

Lets say your walking and it starts to rain…..Plant a juicy one on em…..

Oh and if your dating a sissy boy….hold him in your arms tight so he cant go no where….LOL

And I almost forgot…..My best kiss in the rain was in a the middle of pooring rain….in the pitch dark night….with only a street light on us… cars no nothin…..we could have filled a swimming pool full of water from our cloths after we got done…. ;)

Unfortunately, you cannot force it. If you look like in your photo, I will follow you anywhere (even in the rain), but that’s not the point.
Come on, you live in Paris!!!
It’s one of my perfect cities to do that, specially if you want to do it perfect and rememberable; but believe me, you have to be with the right person, somebody who loves you and who you love. That’s all. Choose a day with a rain forecast and take a walk with your loved one and wait for the rain. Some forecasts are precise enough to have an estimate hour for the rain. You may drink some red wine or champagne or coffee or whatever, waiting for the event. But it’s a thousand times better if you don’t plan anything, and just happens. Better time to do this, late afternoon, early evening. Good Luck!!!

make sure you wear waterproof mascara ;)

i did it, and it was really great and romantic and very sweet, the only thing that sucked was the emo eye make up i seemed to have afterwards, lol.

lucky for me, he liked me enough to think it was cute!
