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.

HazahYeah.

So, I’m fifteen and I’m bi. I questioned my sexuality when I was 12 or 13, and denied any trace that I was bi. But then I started having dreams about making out with other girls, and on the street, I’d look at other girls and think, “Wow, they’re beautiful.” then I met a very beautiful girl who was openly bi, and I decided that I was definitely bi, too. I’ve told two people. One is a really great friend who is also bi (sadly, she doesn’t live near me anymore), and the other is my sister. Thankfully, she’s really good about it. I don’t really think either of my parents would care that much. Maybe my mom, a little. I just don’t know how I would do it. But the big thing in my case, is telling my best friend. She’s always been my friend, since I was 5. She’s really supportive about gay rights, and she’s an extreme democrat, but I don’t know exactly how she would react to me being bi. She’d probably act cool about it. That’s the thing about her. She’s really pulled in on herself. She keeps her emotions to herself. She has gay friends online, but I’m actually her only friend who lives in a 10 mile radius of her. We do everything together. So I don’t know how she would react if I told her. She might think that I like her as more than a friend, which I don’t. Maybe I just shouldn’t tell her, and instead wait until I actually get a girlfriend for her to figure it out? I don’t know. I’m not really expecting answers. I just felt like writing this out. It made me feel a whole lot better. 3 years ago


Crisan LauraI think I should tell my parents that I'm bi.

Hy, I’m 17 and of course I am bi. I had relations with both guys and girls (I’m a girl). My relationship with my parents is very good, I love them and respect them. I’m not independent and I really don’t know what should I do. Some of ‘my friends’ say that I’m not normal, and two or tree of them acept me, and that’s enough. But the problem is with my parents, I don’t know wtf should I do.. Should I tell? Then how should I tell? Would it be better to wait? I don’t know, I guess I’ll some more years untill I have the guts to tell them.. Well then, thx for reading, or listenin. 3 years ago

I’m a guy, i just turned 16, and, of course I’m bi. The thing that is standing in my way are my parent’s views on discipline. my mother has been beating me for doing wrong since the day i was born, first it was her hand, than it was a belt, now she uses a baseball bat. i know she’s gonna beat me when she get’s home because i put a hole in the wall in our computer room(i tried to lie, and say i fell into the wall, but my sister told on me, because i really hit the wall to keep me from hitting her). my stepfather just stands by while she beats me, and my father who lives 50 miles away strictly hates gays. right now, my emotions are pure fear, and sadness, and i don’t know what to do now, and i don’t know if i should ever tell them I’m bi. some of my friend’s at school know I’m bi, and i even know some who are bi, or gay like me. i think my sister knows, because she always brings up gay things when our parents are around. i used to trust my sister, but now i don’t think i can anymore. I’m so confused right now. 3 years ago

JoeythebisexualParents parent parents :/

Hi i’m joe and im 15 year old guy. I’m bi. I kinda knew i was bi for a while and all of my friends/pretty much anyone in my school who knows or heard of me knows that I’m bi. The thing is I’m afraid to tell my parents :( . My dad is homophobic and so is his side of the family and I really don’t know about my mom because when I tried to tell her before she said that I don’t know myself because I haven’t been sexually active with both guys and girls. UGH I NEED HELP D: 3 years ago
