Ok, this is my first contact with other furs.
« on: September 12, 2003, 07:33:52 pm »
Hi,
   Ok, this is my second contact with any other furs. I took the advice of chaz ravenwolf and registered here. I was feeling a little cut off from the furry world. This was because I have hidden all signs of furryness from everone I know for about a year and a half.
    So I tell you all, I am a furry. Now what do I do?
P.S. This is my first post on any type of posting thingy...
How did I do? Tell me!

Don't be so nervous, you did fine. I have also hidden my furriness in real life, too many people in my area just wouldn't understand, and I spend enough time with my psychiotrist. But I sure don't hide it on the net. '<img'> Anyways, hang out here, post stuff, read stuff, look at stuff, listen to stuff, help with stuff, etc. We're all friendly.

Hi Lexington,

Your post is fine.  Just watch out.  Posting on forums can become addictive and start eating up your time.  '<img'>   And just wait, you'll get to the point where you wish you could use emoticons in your daily speech.  ':p'

What to do now?  Well, first I would take a look at the Furries on Furry section of the forum, as there is some great discussion on the fandom and how others approach their furriness.  Second, tell us what led you, besides Chaz, to contact the furry world.  Third, ask questions and find furs who can help steer you to parts of the fandom that match you interests.  And last, have fun and keep posting.

Were a friendly bunch here, so don't worry about getting a bad reaction.

Heya, Lexington.
Welcome to the furtopia.org forums!
New to furry, eh? Well, I think you came to a safe enough place at least. I don't think anyone's gonna maim or kill you or anything along those lines here. The furs here tend to be friendly, fortunately. '<img'>
If you have any questions or whatever, feel free to ask at any time. '<img'>

Hi all.
This is also my first contact with other furs. Hmm....a little bit about me:
I've just gotten in touch with my inner furriness about 2 weeks ago but I've been hiding it since around last December. So far I've told only one person that I'm a furry, and it took about an hour of me explaining it to her before she figured it out.
I live in Ohio. Does anyone know of anyplace where furries meet in person, like an informal gathering? I want to meet some other furries.
~Peace out!

Lexington the wolf:

Hello and welcome to the forum, there is no need to be timid as we all are quite friendly; as for what you do, that is soley up to you, though I would recommend for you to check out the furries for furry topic under the general furry discussions, just to get a wider perspective of what the fandom consists of, if you dont already know.

P.S. You did just fine, though you seem a bit... timid, but that will pass in due time.

Pillowmint:

I shall also say hello and welcome to the forum, I wont say the rest as you dont seem as timid, except for the recomendation to check out the furries for furry topic under the general furry discussions, just to get a better understanding of what the fandom is all about, which is but my opinionated suggestion.

Hey Pillowmint,

Welcome on board *Smiles as he hears all the groans*

The couple that runs Furtopia are from Ohio and I believe they host regular furry gatherings.  

You need to tell us how you came by the name Pillowmint.  It's definitely cute and I think there must be a story behind it.

Oh, you may want to reintroduce yourself in a new thread.  You'll get more responses to your question that way as furs may miss this post in the middle of the responses to Lexington.

Pillowmint, yes, WhiteShepherd and I are located in Xenia Ohio. We try to have a gathering once a month. There is also some located in Cincinnati/Dayton/Columbus. There is also an Ohio list for Ohio furs. (looks it up) "Ohio Fur Webpage".

On this list you will see notices in the areas above that furs are holding meets with times dates etc. Also, they like to chat.

Also, welcome to Furtopia Forums and since you posted your intro here I don't need to repeat the info I gave to Lexington the wolf about the other sites to see on Furtopia.

I hope you enjoy your stay here and as the others said, take a look about and you may also post an intro separate than on this one. Just click 'new topic' at the top and you are on your way! '<img'>

Heya Lexington,

Welcome to the Furtopia Forums. ^.^ I'm da local Lupequine.

Fear da Lupequine. <insert googly lupequine eyes of doom here>

I'm not really that bad. '<img'> Forums can take a bit of time getting used to, but once you spend some time on one it'll get much easier, and be almost like talking to people in an actual room. Ya get to know the personalities, or the aledged personalities behind the avaters and such, and you get to learn a whole bunch.

I can guarentee ya that you won't get splattered for poor posting etique here, you'll get more help then you will bad stuff.

Again, Welcome!
Fear da lupequine
