I've openly told my ex-girlfriend (she's also my best friend) another friend who I don't really know (I asked her unbiased opinion on someone wearing collars because I want one) and 2 friends that accidentally found out when they saw a few...furry pictures...on my phone, but I don't think that they really know :p people are very judgement all at my school and in my town in general :( so no, I'm not really an open furry, although it would be nice to be one haha
There’s no such thing as a painless lesson, they just don’t exist. Sacrifices are necessary; you can’t gain anything without losing something first. Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you’ll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah… a heart made fullmetal. -Edward Elric, The Fullmetal Alchemist

Family, nope, not a single one even though i may be dropping less than subtle hints.

Friends, three. Two of them are school friends. none of them actually care.

Most people at school know, but my family still hasn't picked up on the hints (the two dogs holding hands that used to be on my Facebook, the jackal staring at the seascape on my desktop, the framed print on my wall, all those things).

All of my close friends and some various other people at school know. None of them seem to care.

My parents also know, and they don't really care either. I haven't mentioned it much so that may change when I ask for a tail and stuff.
Feel free to PM me or message me on Skype. I like to talk, and as long as I'm not busy I'm happy to chat anytime :lol-fox:
(But I'm kind of awkward so you'll have to message me first)

ikr :p when I get back from vacation I plan of getting a collar, tag, and maybe tail/ears, but since no one in my family knows...that might causes some controversy haha

Haha yup. I've mentioned it once to my parents, but that was back before Christmas. And since I haven't really shown off my furriness yet they really haven't been exposed to it at all. I'm hoping that this wont ruin my plans to get stuff like a collar and a tail. Good luck with yours :lol-fox:

I've opened up to a few of my friends. Half of them had no idea what a furry was, and didn't care, the other half were proud of me. :fox-:): as for my family, I may tell them someday.
I consider myself a lone wolf, but I don't mind a friend or two to talk with. I also happen to be a writer.

knowing my mom I don't plan on tell her O.o she might just kill me, she was upset enough that I even had a girlfriend to begin with, but I appreciate it! Good luck to you too! I hope they take it well :)

I have one other real life furry friend that, of course, knows I'm one.

I drop absurdly obvious hints but none of my friends seem to have caught on. Like REALLY obvious hints.

We go to a tech school; everyone has a laptop, so naturally everyone has Steam installed. My steam picture is a pawprint and my main group is Furry. On the website we use to access our classes and stuff, my profile picture is an anthropomorphic version of Neo from The Matrix. My desktop background is my fursona's ref pic. Also when we went to the natural history museum and saw this thing:



at the "Grossology" exhibit, my exact words were "normally I'm a fan of anthropomorphic stuff but that thing is horrifying.

I keep to myself and people in the furry fandom but I will tell people if they want to know. No one knows I'm a furry though so it really is just me and the fandom that know my fursona.

I want to tell people but, just not enough courage.
I've told one friend, kinda to stand up for a brony being picked on but he didn't know what it was and didn't seem to mind or care either way. :/

Honestly I used to keep it inside, until I met friends at my new school who think this fandom is cool! So then I started to be more my furry self around them!  :lol-fox:

Are you loud and proud? Or more quiet about it? Myself I don't talk about it at all, I feel slightly embraced, but what are your thoughts on the matter?

I feel the same way as you do.
