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.

I always start liking the wrong guys. And I always start liking them really fast. All the guys I usually start liking are gay, taken, or total jerks. I’m really sick of being single. I know i’m only fourteen and have plenty of time to find the right guy but I still want to have a nice boyfriend to talk to and go on dates with. All the guys at my school and in my town are jerks and most have girlfriends and the one decent guy that I like and that used to like me back until I screwed things up is moving half way across the country. So how do I find a new guy? 7 years ago

Hummm, I’m contemplating about this tag, “find the right boyfriend”. I must say, you can’t find the right boyfriend until you actually had taken him out on a date. Why worry about “finding the right boyfriend”. You are not gonna commit yourself (yet) are you? In order to “find the right boyfriend” you have to date many of them, at least, to find the right one. Who cares! they do it too, “finding the right girlfriend”.
It’s like checking the merchandize. Hey!! they do it, so, why can’t we do it.
Tough! Be creative and sensual, that’ll do the trick. 8 years ago

Who really has a clue when it comes to guys? I don’t even think they do. Not that I’m saying girls are easy to understand, but at least we actually talk about what we’re feeling.

I know plenty of nice guys and sure I like them and at points I think they might be boyfriend material, but they pale into comparison compared to one guy, who is simply an idiot.

I mentally slap myself every morning when I wake up and his name comes into my head. It’s ridiculous really. It’s been well over a year and I spent 10months of that in a different country trying to forget him. Met up with him once and he hugged me and I was back to square one.

He says he likes me, but he’s too immature/looking for everything to be perfect and therefore it’s just not the right time. How long do I wait though? Forever? Until I have to go be his best friend at his wedding?

I seriously believe I’m never going to get over him. It’s not for the lack of trying- or even the lack of looking for someone new. I feel like such a disaster!! But he is just perfect- except for the fact that he’s not ready yet. 9 years ago


It seems everytime I find a guy that I like or want to date, I lose interest in him immediately. It’s almost as if I get bored of them. My friends say I need a ‘challenge’ or a ‘chase’. But I think it’s because I’ve never found a decent boyfriend. Don’t get me wrong, the guys I’ve dated are decent just not boyfriend material I suppose. And I know you’re not suppose to find the love of your life at 15 but it would be nice to settle down with a decent guy for a few months or even a year. 9 years ago
