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.

nikkimLove found me

I was going about my life when I met my boyfriend of six months. He loves me and I love him. 7 years ago


After really thinking about it, there is no way to meet this goal when you are looking for it to happen. I think life should be lived to the fullest you can each day, and if this is something holding you back, then you are thinking to much about it… Therefore, this has become a bit obsolete.

Besides, I already had a similar goal on my list. 7 years ago

hood0rOpen your heart !

Looking for good sex, financial gain, a “friend” or to avoid being disappointment is never going to lead you to falling in love. It is only when you open up your emotions that your intuition starts to come to the fore. You need this intuition, because being selective is the key. If you give too much of yourself away, there isn’t enough for the next person who comes along.

Also, drop the losers ! If you’re still thinking about some guy you can’t have, then you are not available and he will be like a phantom boyfriend that you are cheating on when you go out with other guys.

Personally, I can say that I’ve been in love a few times. None of those times resulted in marriage, but I’ve been able to bounce back from the heartache with relative ease. It’s good to help other people find love and happiness. I find that brings love into my own life.

I HATE!!!!! games, and I’ve never tried to be someone’s friend when I knew damn well that I wanted more from the start (which wasn’t sex, by the way). 8 years ago
