As for me, it may be a bit dangerous because my parents can get aknowleged that there isn't any  "furry friend". Maybe, the best decision for me will be getting a RL furry friend which I think is extremely difficult. Maybe I'll try to find one when I'll move from Ukraine to Canada (soon).

Good luck then,
Furry friends r difficult to get,

if you can't find one, make one (srsly, you should make one of your friend be "furry" if you can't find any1)

Thnk you for the advice anyways, but I can not just run to my friend and say: "HEY U KNOW FURRIES R COOL WANNA BE ONE?". Just because not everyone likes anthro stuff; someone just hates furries; this can damage my reputation and my parents will know that I'm a furry, and I don't want that.

P.S. By the way, anyone knows what is a chance to meet at least 1 furry is a default high school in USA/Canada?

P.P.S. I have the idea of telling my parents that it's an online friend. What do you think about it?

I think you could probably tell if they were? I don't know what the chance is but it can't be that rare. I know someone who likes the art anyway
also if anyone likes animals or digital art then they might like furries..
plus i heard of people making sonas for people who aren't into furries or drawing them as an animals, then they might start to like them. Well you have to be subtle when introducing people to them

Anyways there are different types of furries, some fans of cartoon shows or comics, some into the art or stories and some into fursuits etc.

"HEY U KNOW FURRIES R COOL WANNA BE ONE?"

Okay, that creepy.
Starts with 'do you have a hobby?'
I got 2 friends by this method,

Or you just let them know it by themself,
they'll just leave you alone with your hobby, or be "furry" with you

Remember, you are not alone in this world.

As I said before a while ago, my family found out that I was a furry in the worst of ways but it sort of simmered down shortly after. They don't know that I am a brony though.

Until today.

I though that if they found out I am a brony in the same way they found out I am a furry it would just make things worse. So I made them watch the documentary which in my opinion is the best way for people to see the fandom properly. It had mixed results, over all I am glad I did show them no matter what they though as it would be a matter off my chest. It also helped them understand the furry fandom as there is overlap and dispelled some misconceptions which I'm happy about.

Tbh I try to keep my furry-ness away from my parents. I don't really think I'll gain anything if I tell them so I just don't. I also use incognito when I'm going on anything furry related.

Mostly hid it, but i guess things like "Ok, sure, it's what you like"
My parents aren't people who overact to weird things, except in good ways.
Like on how my mom has been overly excited when i've shown her fursuits as mean to make one.

I think my mom gets it and is ok with it- but not my dad. When I told him over a year ago he seemed chill at first- until He picked me up from a movie about 3 days later. He sat me down and explained how its "Weird", "You'll get ridiculed" and he also thought it was a sex thing. of course. I got what he was saying, but dads never make it easy to argue. I've told my friends at school and they dont give two shits so thats good, but the issue now is what to do next time when I tell my parents again. To be honest though, I also could have done A LOT better when It came to explaining it (I was 12 dont sue me)

Lol, my parents don't know how to check my history. Plus I want to be able to save my login info! I used to do that, though, just in case!

His brother probably is not a hater, he just jokes on alirezatm..

Never got into the fandom until this year.

But I use my own laptop so I don't worry.

Then again, if I wanted to buy anything, or go to a convention, I can go myself. So I feel for you guys who are a bit on the younger side.

My parents don't know I'm a furry, but I think they know about the furry fandom and that it exists. They just think it's this weird sexual thing where people where giant fursuits. I don't think they would be very supportive if I told them that I was a furry.

Well, my father found out by looking over my shoulder while I was on the computer looking at Red Panda anthro art, and his words were something along the lines of "Oh, don't you tell me you're a damn furry now!" I just tried to play it off and made up some excuss as to why I was looking it up and that just really turned me off from really telling my parents, however, I confide in my sister about mainly everything, and I told her about my fursona. She ended up bringing it up in front of my mom and I sort of panicked and tried to deny it, but I decided not to just to see where it would go. My mother didn't really react. She just sort of stayed quiet. I had the feeling that she was trying to hold back criticism.

My parents know but are kind of clueless so they don't really understand what being in the fandom entails, I'm almost sure they are convinced its the name of a show because I always "furry fandom" like "sherlock fandom" and "dr who fandom" lol X)
