Welcome to the world of Shmitten Kitten! *pretend I just did a sweeping gesture like how a wizard would make* My name is Anna Goldfarb and this is a blog about dating for people who would probably never read a blog about dating.

About the site: If Shmitten Kitten were a college course, it'd be called "The Sociology of Dudes." If I were the professor of this course, I'd probably give you an A just for reading this "about" section since that shows initiative on your part. Well done.

I started this site in January 2008 because I didn't see very many blogs that talk about dating the way that I do when I'm with my friends: I bust on guys just as much as I fawn over them so reading Shmitten Kitten should feel like you're hanging out with your buddies.

Both guys and girls seem to enjoy my observations which is awesome. When guys are nodding along as they read my posts then let's just say that my work here is done. I should put that on my resume: Guy Nodder Specialist.

About me: I'm a single, super tall, unemployed, Jewish woman in her 30s living at home with her parents. I love short guys, tacos, and free drinks. I wrote a book about mi vida loca called Clearly, I Didn't Think This Through, (Fall 2012, Berkley Trade) and it's now available for pre-order. Hooray!

You can direct all general correspondence to hi@shmittenkitten.com. And, be sure to check out my Tumblr, Shlooby Kitten, and my personal site, AnnaGoldfarb.com. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
