Two of my co-workers are furry, about 1/6 of my school is into the furry fandom in some degree, and even the server I was playing in for Counter-Strike: Source was full of furries and I didn't even know about it just until recently.

Well when I was little I always loved costumes and I learned more about the fandom on an episode of weird true and freaky.

I found out about furries a few years ago, (mistakingly from an ad), but I didn't join the fandom until last year

on the popular phone app, ifunny, i knew about furries but never really got into it. i just started looking at pictures everyday and it just kinda sucked me in! i love it though. i just fell in love with the whole fandom itself and i guess i just started calling myself a furry.

I had a friend who's a furry. I didn't really know much about it at first but years later I started hanging out with him again and it started seeming really cool. Then one day in calculus class, I was thinking about it more, and I couldn't stop thinking about making a fursuit and I got really excited about it. Then for the next week, I was hooked to this site! I kept losing track of time and missing class. I hated that I was slacking off but I couldn't help myself.

Well about 7-8 months ago, i "accidently" found i video on youtube with furry art, and i liked it, and even watched more videos, it gave my life some happyness, it literaly made happy, so i started searching for more of this art, and i found fluke, his art is realy incredible awesome.
furry art helped becoming myself again, before that i was lieing to myself and hiding "weard" things about myself which i better didn't hide. So i was not being my truely self for over 4 years, just the furry art helped.me finding my truely self back, and i did, it helped me a lot with my sexual orientation aswell (can i tell that?).

i yesterday i decided to join the furry fandom, so i created a fursona (still working on an avatar of my fursona, it'll take some time). So yeah i guess that's a bit the story behind me of how i became a furry :p

I was looking for how to draw anthro's/ how to draw anthro fox, and an old post on this site came up. That's my real introduction to this site and the fandom. However, I've been into furries for a long time. I was actually looking up the how to draw for a kitsune bard character in a pathfinder game, but I've had things like tails and such for quite a few years. There was no real introduction to say, I just was who I was, and my mother is the goofy person she was, so the idea of anthros existed long before the idea of being in a fandom. So here was the actual fandom introduction I guess. Go furryteens.

I am not sure to tell the truth I have always loved dragons, heck animals in general, and I played DnD for awhile with my friends and still have yet to have a human character. I then it just evolved from that and my constant looking up of stuff. Well there is also once I added Furry(it was a tag on a bunch of the pictures) to my searches for dragon pictures I found many more that I liked, so I looked up what it was and fell in love.

I'm a member on this one site and was chatting with a few guys on the shoutbox. One guy who at that point I was friends with for a while asked "Are you guys okay with me being Furry?" I had no idea what that meant so I asked. But looked it up on google as soon as I asked anyways. Though it sounded a bit... odd plus I asked a friend and they didn't give me a good impression. Then I watched Uncle Kages videos and found a movie about Anthrocon on YouTube, so I did some more research and decided that the whole Furry fandom is actually really really really really really really cool. Short while after that I decided that I was a fur and shortly after that joined this site.

Through one of those websites that shows a random flash video from the internet. It came up with some people in fursuits and it interested me (I've always loved animals, fursuits seemed so good I wanted to get one) so I searched up different words trying to work out what they (the fursuits) were until I searched the term fursuits - and that's where I discovered the fandom.
So yay for random findings! Maybe it was fate? :fox-:P:

I was up late one night and was on youtube, I was bored since I couldn't sleep and was watching random videos, and one of the videos was about furries. I then watched a few more videos as googled it and got drawn into the fandom :fox-;):

I hadn't heard of the fandom, or what a fandom is at the time.  It all happened the 4th quarter of school, close to the end.  One of my classes gave freetime, so I was searching google+.  The first furry picture that I ever saw was on the public community.  It was of a blue male wolf cuddling with a pink female wolf, both anthro.  I was thinking about what would happen if people turned into anthros recently.  Keep in mind that I didn't know about the fandom.  I was like, "OMG, someone else has the same idea."  There was a link with it, SoFurry.  At home, I checked it out and found some awesome stories and decided to make some myself.  That is the day I found out that the fandom is as huge as it is, and that there are little to no people out here in Nebraska.

People were talking about this game mod "Furblivion" and I was curious, so I looked it up. It led me to a furry forum, and I thought people's furry avatars and stuff were really awesome. Then I made the connection that the furry fandom = fandom about anthro animals and I love anthro animals, so I joined and love it.
