So, have you ever done/wanted to do that? Transformation of your friends into furries might be awesome! Post your stories here.

As for me, no one still knows that I'm a furry, so, obviously, I can't convert anyone now.

I've never really thought of trying something like that but who knows, maybe one day.  :)

Yes and no..

I always talk about how the furry fandom isn't all that bad and how furries are pretty cool, but I wouldn't call it "conversion." (Though one of my friends would argue otherwise)


Edit: >>Yes
I remember calling one of my friends' OCs their "fursona"

I've wanted to, it'd be cool to have a rl friend on this site for example but I haven't tried to "convert" anyone. My views is that if they want to join the fandom they will on their own

I showed my brother about the fandom, he was okay with it, but it felt like I was forcing him so I just stopped trying to make him a furry.

I managed to persuade two friends to join this site for a time just to try it out. One left shortly after but the other stuck around for a bit. Neither really identify as a Furry any longer but the only that choose to stay on the site still hangs out with members of the fandom in the Salsa crew.

So in the need while I succeeded in exposing them to the Fandom they didn't really stick around but hey I tried and now they have a better understanding and positive view of the Fandom so it's still a win even if it's not what I was hoping for.

      When I first became a furry, I did try to convert someone. They were with the fandom for a few months to possibly a year and they left. They had a problem with drama in the society and some other factors of the community mixed in pushed them away. Today, the despise all furries. I've also tried to convert someone else, but they didn't want to be a part of being a furry, As I look back on it today, I think that we shouldn't be trying to convert people. It only seems to irritate them and push them farther away from us. They should choose on their own if they want to be a furry on their own time. We shouldn't influence their fursona or anything of the sorts. A fursona is personal and relates to that person on an individual level. In the end, a fursona is a personality of someone that has been amplified in an animalistic manner. Who knows someone better then the person themselves? I stopped trying to convince people to join who we are furries. If you're like me, you discovered the fandom suddenly and it amazed you. I want others to feel amazed just like I did.

I have three friends that I made them realize that they might just definitely be furries. I'm practically doing a social experiment here. I accidentally showed one of them the bad side of the fandom furst, and showed the good side (a.k.a. just my art binder) to another friend. The one who saw the bad side first goes dead silent when I suggest that she is a furry and the other playfully denies it. The 3rd one has 2 fursona, but doesn't call them that. He just claims he's a cat and his username usually reference a single all-black wolf and Minecraft. I feel like making the ref sheets, just to mess with them.

I kinda accidentally, more or less got someone who I wouldn't want to be a furry to be a furry. Basically I hinted towards it for a while, (My friends didn't know I was a furry ). And then I explained it to to one of them. Then my 'friend' basically was like sounds cool. He wants to be a White Tiger he says. And I was like, "Er... You sure, I mean, like, there's that dark 10% that's like um... you know using this for like having fun if you catch my drift (And I showed him over google images.)" He shrugged and was cool with it.

The rest of the people I know, freaked out when I told them I was a furry (Since they've been over exposed to the dark side), but since they've already known me for a while they were kind of okay with it. (They knew I was not going to run around in a suit having 'fun' in a con.)

Me and another friend tried to convert our one best friend into a furry.... Err we failed kind of because we decided to put up the bad side as a desktop wallpaper for his computer first. So when we asked him months later he was like if you're trying to get me into (Censored) squirls... NO.
Outside of that, an abnormal amount of people I knew were already furries before me so it took the fun out of it.

I'm not a furry and I wouldn't want my friends to be furries either, that's gross. I only do this ironically I'm embarrassed to be associated with this group.

I did in the past, but now I shudder at the thought.

It's a hobby, you can't "convert your friends" into furries, you can only introduce them to it and hope they like it.

I think a couple of my friends might become furries, they seem pretty interested. I also found out my best friend is a furry. I asked him why he never told me, and he said he was afraid I would judge him for it. Little did he know I was a furry as well.

Oh yeah. An example beig a friend of mine who pretty much forced me into a theatre to watch zootopia with our other friends. It was also her second time watching that movie in a week. We were psyched even after the movie but she stuck with humanized stuff.

Yeah but they didn't seem to interested and I don't talk to them much anymore anyway, all my friends now are already furries :P Although I have tried converting my younger brother, by making him fursuit parts(after asking of coarse) and a fursona but he's just not into it like I am. I kinda chilled out though as I felt he thought I was trying to force him in when I'm just showing the stuff he can do and how fun it can be. He still uses the characters every now and then but not active on FA or really does anything in the fandom.
I made friends in the fandom and my older brother is a bit of a furry so I don't feel the need to try to "convert" anybody anymore XD at least not as bad..
