Hi, I was just wondering when and what your first furry experience was, as I yet to partake in a furry activity let alone meet a furry in person

Depends what you mean. If you mean first activity within the fandom, I'd say it would be joining this forum.

But if you mean a memory relating to anthros, I guess I can always say that I've loved animals in cartoons. Don't even remember a first experience.

My first time IRL was when I saw a fur suit head at a native American festival.... didn't know what they were then.
Then my ant told me about them and we roleplayed, and still do.
Then I found this forum, and my life became complete.

If the question is asking that of one's first interaction with Furries in the fandom then I would have to pin that to a conversation on a minecraft server. It so happened that Furries came up and a number of people joined the discussion stating they were furries (myself included) and for an extremely short period of time the chat was dominated by a small conversation about Fursona related things. If the question asks of one's first interaction with the fandom itself (at least conceptually) then I would have to say the Furry Thread on MCF was the first time I had any form of interaction with a semi-broad section of the fandom (To tell the truth I don't even know if that thread is still around). Or if the question is asking of first exposure to Anthro characters which are also commonly labeled as Furries then I would have to say T.V. shows such as Winnie the Pooh, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and others were among some of my absolute first experiences.

My first time meeting somebody irl would be my older brother a year after I joined the fandom. I didnt know he was a furry before that :P First time I saw fursuits irl (other than my own)was when I went to an anime convention last year^^

First time online was the furry thread on the ChickenSmoothie forums^^

This question is very vague so ill answer it an all ways possible.

First experience with the furry fandom was that one group of people on DeviantArt. You know the ones.

Interaction with furries themselves would be hanging around Tod Atsu during my freshmen year of highschool.

First furry activity was probably joining this forum.

That's a tough question. Probably when I was 3? Watching an anime movie, for those of you who are curious Doraemon, one of the movies had something to do with teleporting to a world with half bird/half human furries. If I went EVEN further before that, then I'd say AnpanMan, once more an anime. The show was for babies. And I was like, two years old. He show consisted of Walking Bread people were super heroes, two humans, a walking fencing phantom leek, and many animal furry children... Man what a bizzare hit show that was. Around the same time, I watched an anime with cat furries. Then there was also Sonic the Hedgehog... See tough question. I was born into furrism and years later, I'm here.The one that I can recall most around the age of 7, would be Sergeant frog, or Keroro Gunsou in Japanese, which was abut Alien frogs... You know what, I'm done anime is WAAAAAAAAY TOO WIERD!

Well I looked furries up when my friends told me about them, but I'd always been a bit of a furry before then. I mean, I'd made Krowdon in 5th grade and had been using her to represent myself online since 2009. April 1st, 2009 to be exact, which is when I joined Redwall: Warlords.

My first IRL experience with furries though was at a little anime con thing, where I ran into two fursuiters. I have that pic around somewhere.

stumbled upon in my endless ventures into the unkown, yet brilliant world, of the internet. but as i reconcile, i notice activity from my previous ventures of my younger ages where i displayed very "furry" activity, like I always loooooved wolves to the point where i would fantasize about becoming one in my dreams running through forests and what-not. So, to answer the aforementioned question, I have always been a furry, deep down and I only recently discovered it about 2 years ago, honestly have no idea how i found this forum but i lurked for 2 months because I was scared to talk to people but because of it I have gained so many friends, to talk to, or play with via the steam network.

My first experience consisted of watching a furry music video online, you know, the fursuit ones.

i really loved wolves (it's funny because i detest them now but)
i joined a wolf role-playing site and made my character (i guess my first fursona? she was definitely a self insert)
in a thread i saw some users mentioning their fursonas, so i looked them up on deviantart and thought it was the coolest thing ever

i didn't like fursuits till around two years ago, when i found some anthrocon videos. even then, i only liked realistic suits until last year. ;v;

wow!! that's really cool that your aunt is like that, i've never met anyone with a furry relative who'd RP with them haha

hmm, i read an article on it in a teen magazine, and then someone recommended this forum to me to learn more about furries ^v ^
i saw a fursuit for the first time two years ago at an anime convention, and wore my first fursuit back in umm, august last year?

I can't say when I was first introduced to the concept, but I've been a furry long before I knew of the fandom or what furries are. My first experience with other furries . . . hmm, can't recall the first, I've seen fursuits here and there for quite a while at festivals and the ren fair. I know my introduction to the fandom was here though, and quite a smooth one.
