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.

not fall in love


Entries from everyone


Way easy, just don’t get attached. It sucks if your a compassionate person though – it’ll make it harder. Also, it helps to not self – disclose to others, that way relationships stay business like and only like accquaintances. I think the biggest problem people face is just getting to attached and close to the person. 4 years ago


There’s no reason to fall in love. 5 years ago

createkgNo Love For me

At least not right now. I feel like I have been wanting to fall in love so badly for so long to “find that other half”... always dating guys that were plain not good for me just to be dating… searching. It’s pretty obnoxious to me looking back on my disparity. I am still new to this but am REALLY trying to make some changes in my life. I would say no love falling for a while. I need to love me more… I have too much to do, see and feel before I can truly love … and I’m already 26. I guess life has to start sometime for everyone 7 years ago

ruenisis there a way?

i dont really know how… but theres gotta be a way of not falling in love

after 3 relationships and after help to my friends (girls and boys) with theirs relationhips ive realized that falling in love equals to get hurted

its ok to sometimes kiss a girl in a party
its ok to have sex sometimes
just dont fall in love

its ok, i know i can have the love of my friends and my family but i hope thats enough

sometimes it looks like it doesn’t

im in love with a girl in my school , shes beatyful (for me)
but i just dont wanna fall in love…

i havent seen her for like 6 days and i almost go crazy…

after the seventh day i could talk with her… i take her home, we chatted a while.. she asked me if shes beautyful to me .. obyously i said yes… but i just dont wanna fdall in love…

thats just trouble…
dont wanna have a girlfriend…
dont wanna get married…
dont wanna have kids…
dont wanna get divorced…. 7 years ago

Angelysmso here's my thought

maybe im just paranoid …but the thought of falling in love again freaks me out and i just dont want that to happen. Been in “love” twice in my life the first person wasnt willing to go out ..and the second guy who did later on cheated on me…so *Okay this is a deep dark confession this time im having feeling for this guy…but im like shit scared…..i dont want this to happen coz i think love = pain…i donno whats wrong with me advice ? please feel free to give me some ! in serious need of them. 8 years ago

azari_mirno love

i have fallen in love twice and both times i feel as if i have shouldnt have, i have no control over my emotions try as i might but i cant do it again.
i live in a society where falling in love is taboo, if it happens in an arrange marriage then wopdedo.
otherwise dont do it, as am always scared of how my family will react, and what if the guy i have fallen in love with is a complete psyco and if i have lost my family over him the what do i do?
need to be stronger and not do it, think back to having cats as the loves of my love (just need to adopt one now!!) 8 years ago
