How long have you been a furry?
« on: September 23, 2016, 02:29:48 am »
Personally, this is my 7th year as a furry. However, I discovered that there were others like me in 2011. While browsing the new users form, I saw someone post what year they had become a furry. Now I'm curious..

depends what you count as furry. I've always drawn anthro animals.
I made my sona around 5 years ago though but before that I had sona like ocs I guess. But my sona was often a combination of feral and anthro. And I didn't associate with the term furry much till more recently. so forever or recently I guess,,

Not furry technically, but i had once a literal obsession on filsm like All Dogs Go To Heaven && etc back when i was 12-13.
I've had some actual interest into furry content like around 2-3 years ago.
and I only started actually PARTICIPATING as one like barely half a year now.

I can say time srsrly went fast tho, omfg.

I've been calling myself a furry for about 6 years but could be 7 since I'm not exactly sure the date I just know I was pretty new to it when I created my DA account and use that to judge how long I've been in the fandom X3
Either way its been awhile and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon :D

 I found out about the fandom like five years ago when I was in fourth grade and made an ugly wolf fursona, but I kinda just forgot about it until March this year. So technically, I've been a part of the fandom for five years, but I'll just say a few months since I actually decided to call myself a furry and be a part of the fandom in March.

I've been a furry since the summer of 2012. It's quite hard to believe that I've been in the fandom for four years so far. I've seen it change a lot in just this little ammount of time, for better and worse. I aim to be a furry the rest of my life because it's played a large role in my life, and it allows me to express myself. I've said it time and time again that I truly feel like a goat mentally, and although I can't physically be a goat in reality, I can be a goat in the furry community. I can be what I am and what I want to be without the judgement and limitations of the world and of reality. The furry fandom is certainly my life. After four years, I can only say that it's just the beginning. It's still day one and I see the sun rising.

For as long as I can remember, I've had a soft spot for animals with human qualities. I only started calling myself a furry in the past few years, however.

I became a furry back in 2009 and made my first fursona, and boy was she weird. Over the years my art improved and my personality changed; as did my fursona, same one but her design is still changing today.

I first discovered the fandom in 2012 but never really stuck with it or got too much into it until earlier this year.

I realize my answer was kinda confusing. I discovered I liked anthro's from movies in 2009, and I wanted to be one. In 2011, I first discovered what a furry was after a Google search. In 2012, I associated myself with the fandom though an online chat board in a website called "Reddit." I actually developed my own fursona's looks in 2015, as I realized I didn't always want to be what other people wanted me to be. Finally, this year I started talking with my proper age group on this website.

I've liked anthro movies and other things for years, and I would daydream of being an anthro fox literally every day. I found out what a furry was in mid to late 2017, but I didn't consider myself one until January of this year, when I created Aryn.
