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.

nerteleyKiss a guy on New Years Eve

I wasn’t planning on kissing the person I kissed. We were both drunk, so I don’t quite remember how it first happened, but I do remember that he was a really good and fun kisser. 4 years ago

LoveriotxoxoFirst one last night

My previous bfs have NEVER kissed me on new years, and my bf now is shy, the ball dropped and everyone looked at me and him so I smooched him =]] my first [[and deff not last]] new years kiss. 6 years ago

twickywabbitHopefully i'll be with my boyfriend..

=]] <3 7 years ago


it’s been pretty nice having someone around this time of year for the past 3 years. 7 years ago

seg263I want him to kiss me...

Never been kissed on New Years eve on the lips. I’m crossing my fingers for this year. I won’t be with him this New Years though… bummer. 8 years ago

cranberrygoddessIt would have been good except for that fact that...

he was more interested in taking photos of the fireworks than kissing me. and he wonders why we never had a second date lol.

Next time I do this it will be with someone who really cares about me. 8 years ago

ItWasWorthItit was pretty pathetic....

my bestfriend and I were sitting on the computer checking our mail or something when her mom announced we missed new years by 2 minutes…we were like, “Oh shit!!!” And we turned around and smooched eachother. Too bad it doesnt count for this goal because it has to be a guy! So come next year I’ll set my alarm for 1 minute before new years and have some guy handcuffed to me (lol) and that way I’ll make sure not miss it and have to kiss my bestfriend again!! But I love her to death so it wasnt that disappointing…it just wasn’t your typical guy-girl smooch…but hey, what can you do? 8 years ago


i finally got the joy of this.
it was pretty fabulous, even though we both had quite a few drinks in us we knew it meant something becuase it wasn’t the first and def. not the last kiss. =]
goodluck. 8 years ago

joyjoeinew year passed

and i haven’t done this so i want to give up and will start to post this goal again at the end of this year… hopefully, i can find nice guy to kiss…;) 8 years ago


he didn’t come for new year and i couldn’t find a guy to kiss in time… he should have given me notice in advance so i would have found another guy to accomplish this goal…lol 8 years ago

I’ve been smoochin’ my hubby for the last 5 new years…coming up soon it will be number 6! lol ;) 9 years ago


well i’ve got a guy, now i just have to keep him til new years :) 9 years ago


One night-New Year’s Eve, 1991, to be exact-I had this wish come true. It was like the song, “A Kiss to Build a Dream On.” I made another, bigger, more important wish that night as well. I wished that this would be the man who’s lips would meet mine for every New Year’s celebration for the rest of our lives. We’ll celebrate our 15th New Year’s Eve together this Dec. 31., and I’m sure I’ll get my 15th New Year’s kiss. Some things worth doing are worth doing again and again! 9 years ago

rach7turtleNot that great.

Ive kissed a few different guys (different years). They were my boyfriend at the time. Honestly it’s not as great as it seems. :) But have fun at achieving your goal. Maybe you’ll like it better than I did. What i remember more was giving up chocolate for a whole year. I actually did it! 9 years ago
