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.

Ellie Casothers...

I repeated 8 and 15, so here is 15:

15. Spontaneous: I don’t like repetition or routine. I like the thrill of not knowing what’s going to happen next. And I want to live in that thrill all my life.

Now the others:

21. Protectiveness: You know, I’m a big, independent girl. But being spoiled and taken-care of isn’t that bad. I like that desperate, selfless hero role some guys take. It’s a turn-on.

22. Trust: They say trust is the foundation of every relationship. I need to know that I can come home and be me safely. And feel at peace and stuff.

23. Education: He must go to college or already have a degree. If he decides to work in a music store or a library or waiting tables in a coffee after that, whatever. As long as he went to college. I’m sorry, but education just changes people.

24. Visionary: I need someone with a big mind. I want to be always wondering whatever he is going to come up with.

25. Animal person: I am a vegetarian, and I volunteer in shelters. So I need someone who loves and respects animal. I don’t ask for a vegetarian guy, I ask for someone who believes animals are living beings equal to us that deserve respect and love.

26. Romance: I hate tacky, pink all-flowery romance. But a nice, long letter in our anniversary and chocolates or a stolen flower undo me. Pretty words, a walk on the beach. You get the picture.

27. Humanism: I define it like the capability of being a person that the world needs. That he has a conscience to enhance society and to keep culture and all that stuff. That’s important to me.

28. Class: I don’t need Mr. Darcy, a Versailles duke or even an XVIII century gentleman. I need someone who knows when not to swear, not to use those disgusting words referring to sex, women, bodily functions or money. That he can use a fork and a knife, not burping, not… You know, just someone who knows what class and elegance is about, and be comfortable with it.

29. Confidence: I can’t stand insecure, self-conscious people. I’m bold, crazy and free. I don’t care about what people say of me, and I want that in a partner.

30. Height: He MUST be taller than me, meaning he has to be at least 5’8 feet. Because I measure 5’3 ft. If he is even taller, the better. 3 years ago

Ellie Cas20 first that I could think of. :D

1. Sense of humor: I am not spending my life with someone who can’t make me laugh. I’m funny enough, but I tend to drift towards the quiet side and so I need someone who keeps me amused.

2. Chef: I say chef, but I don’t need Emeril. I resolved that I don’t want to cook for myself, so I need a guy who will do it for me. He has to be good at it, too.

3. Intelligence: Do I have to dwell on this?

4. Dedicated: To the relationship, to his work, to his own family, to his goals. I like dedication, it’s sexy.

5. Intensity: I want someone to be who he is fully and thoroughly.

6. Dare to: I want to live, and have adventures with my mate.

7. Prudence: I am a very, very, VERY daring person. Sometimes I need control because I just jump into anything without second glances. Therefore I need someone to show me sense.

8. Leadership: I want a person who makes decisions for us and for himself. I want him to be capable of talking me into something, because that is a feat that few can brag about.

9. Patience: I am crazy, wild, moody and terribly inconstant. Anyone who has no patience cannot be around me for long.

10. Commitment: I want a person to commit for real, and to show me why commitment is the best.

11. Organized: I have OCD, so I don’t need another crazy like me. I want the guy to be normal messy, something we don’t fight a lot about.

12. Social: I am social, I have a lot of people who I love to share with. So I want my guy to share with them too, and be happy to do so.

13. Maturity: I have enough with my own childishness to deal. It is important that a person know the times for everything, and that is something I admire.

14. Smell: Has it ever happened to you that you know someone who just doesn’t smell good? Well, it’s chemistry. He may be clean and all, but if his natural smell isn’t compatible with my nose.

15. Leadership: I want a leader. I am a leader, I know what I want and what’s good for me. I know that a leader is good for me.

16. Sincerity: I need a person’s actions, thought, words and feelings to be coherent and harmonious.

17. Independence: I don’t want a guy to need me. I want a guy to want me, to desire me, to like me. But I sure want him to have his own space and life.

18. Tenacity: I like people who are able to stand by their beliefs, ideas or point of view logically and wisely.

19. Open: Even if someone can stand by their mind, they should be able to see someone else’s point of view.

20. Frolicsome: I need a guy to be frolicsome, or a naughty playfulness. He must be mischievous, vivacious, irreverent, witty and graceful. I need that spirit in a person, whether it presents as an over active need to jump, as a disdain for petty rules, or a love for subtle and sarcastic insults. That’s just HOT. 3 years ago
