GLB! Hi everyone!
« on: June 03, 2009, 08:40:37 pm »
Lessee here... It's been a while since I joined a new site... Whut am I supposed to do again?

:???:

OH! -DurHurr.-

Hi, the username says Green Like Blue, but my friends call me Chrissy, or Celeste, if you know me really well.  :fox-;):

I'm 18, (Graduating this year!!! ^_^) and I've really only just discovered the Furry Fandom (I think that's the term for it... o.o; ). I decided I'd give it a try, so I aplogize for any "rookie mistakes" ahead of time... ^_^;

I really don't know what animal I am, to tell the truth. I named one that sounded appealing to me, but I'm not entirely sure if it's really who I am... I was hoping someone could give me some tips on finding myself... Pwease?

Well, I hope I can make some awesome friends here! ^_^

well welcome to the fandom, and welcome to FT. Also getting your fursona will take time. don't rush it.
Whats done is done. You can't change the past any more then you can change the number of stars in the sky. However, you can change the future, and when it comes to that, I have but one thing to say, and that is "Go for it". Because, when you're old and crippled, the things you'll regret most are the things you never did.

Hooray! We got another furry to the fandom! XD

Welcome to FT. I'm Rei. Nice to meet ya! My fursona is a raccoon. You shouldn't worry about finding your fursona quickly. Like Kolt said, it takes time. I found mine by asking a bunch of my friends what they thought my fursona was. Maybe try asking some of your closer friends what they think? That's how I found mine. Just a suggestion though. Don't be afraid to ask questions, either. =3

Once again, nice to meet ya! Hope you enjoy it here. X3
I love getting PMs, so feel free to send me one anytime! I'm always looking to make new furry friends. X3

Welcome to the site!  I hope you enjoy your stay :-)

Finding one's fursona is a fairly personal thing, although you don't have to have a fursona or even a "species" to be a furry fan.  Lots of people have been furs for years without actually adopting a species or a primary character/fursona of their own.  The process varies greatly from person to person; some choose an animal for spiritual significance, or because they feel it represents traits about themselves (or that they aspire toward), and some just pick an animal that they like.

Developing that animal into a character also varies based on the person.  Some furs just portray themselves in animal form, with the same personality and appearance, and leave it at that.  Others go so far as to write entire novels detailing the character's back-story and world of residence.  And, there's everything in between.  For me, my fursona originally started out as just myself in animal form, and I chose the wolf as my species because it sounded cool.  Now, almost six years later, my characters have their own personalities (I have more than one), and I'm working on a mini-novel about her :-)

Bottom line, don't worry too much about it, it'll come to you eventually.  Furry is for fun, and not really something to be taken seriously, so just have fun with it and you'll enjoy yourself :-D

Welcome to FT and congrats on deciding to join the fandom! Don't worry too much about not having a fursona yet. As said several times, just take your time.

Congrats! I just graduated last Friday! <3 '09 baby!

You are gonna make some awesome friends here. I've made a couple already. ^_^

And don't worry about the whole fursona thing. Just have fun with that fact that you are part... of something beautiful. *tear tear*

Nice to meet you! My name is Amanda, and even though I may be a fairly new fur myself, if you have any questions, just pm me. ^_^

Welcome to the fandom.
Just as a general rule, this isn't really a good site to use for figuring out how furries are, but it IS a good site in general, so stick around.
Do look around in Deviantart and such though.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with that, at least not with your wording, you make it sound like non-furs/people without fursonas aren't welcome here, which is hardly the case.  I will say, though, that if the OP wants to learn more about the furry fandom, Wikifur is one of the best resource sites out there.

Welcome! :D hope you have fun here! As for the help finding yourself, well, everyone has different ways of going about it, some decide based on they're personality, some base it on what other people say they are, some people base it on what they'd like to be, I think it just comes to you in time. For whatever reason you might have, it (in my opinion) finds you faster than you find it. So just give it some thought, and sometime, somehow, you'll find out what you think best suits you. :D Best of luck in the search for yourself! And one more time, welcome to the forums!

I meant quite the opposite.
Several of the current members have little to prove their furriness other than a fursona with matching avatar.
Some do not even have that.
Basically, we don't act very "furry", and so this forum will not really give you that much insight into the fandom.

In this context, I meant it as "the average of the actions of people who call themselves Furry"

Welcome to our corner of the internets! We're all pretty fun and cool around here, so you'll fit in with us well enough if you just be yourself. I hope to see you around the other parts of our forum soon =3. Pull up a chair and pick out a kitten, join in with the rest of us <3.

And to everyone else; at the risk of mini-modding, can we not welcome our new members with arguments? We have an entire board for that. </3. Who care's if it's furry or not, she wants to know and here she is. That's good enough for me.

This is a very good point, actually, and I apologize for any remarks I made that were out of line.
