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.

compromise, compromise, and compromise! That is, with the other person. Never compromise – that is your morals, your integrity, your self-worth. Be open-minded, that it, consider people you normally wouldn’t – you never know. Don’t settle – if someone is not right, you can’t force it – walk away and be on your own – when you find that special someone – you will know. 5 months ago

Found a relationship in March 2013. It’s been up and down but seems to be going well. She met my siblings this past weekend and my mother a month before that. 15 months ago

riders4cHow do people meet these days?

I really don’t know how to do this at my age. When I was in my early twenties, it was easy. If you were single, then pretty much you assumed everyone was looking for the same thing. When you have kids and even grandkids and are single again, it’s a whole different thing. I really don’t know how to meet eligible bachelors well enough men who are looking for the same thing I am. I am looking for someone to share my life with and enjoy our families and eventually retirement years with.
Online profiles seem so sterile and all begin to run together. And I just don’t get out to places where I would meet guys my age or at least where it would be appropriate to assume a guy my age was available and interested.
How do people, my age, meet these days in an environment where you can get to know each other a little before committing too much time if it isn’t working out? 17 months ago

How long should i continually remain lonely.
The more i try the more i realise love comes but, not wholly
if you could understand that i love you only,
Then i guess you will love me solely.

In an attempt to love fully
I turn out not to fancy anyone and fail
If you could prove your love to me, then i can send you a mail
As i trail, frail and wail 17 months ago

CalJust physical attraction at first.

However that as enough for me to really get to know her. We went along in a hit or miss relationship for years. After I accepted Christ as Lord of my life in 1985, then I was able to be the kind of husband my wife deserves. 20 months ago
