Good luck TiggerWiccan,

It is possible to form some very strong bonds through online relationships.  I shared a bond like that with two different female furs in my time.  

In both situations, neither of us viewed our online relationship as monogamous, but it did extend past normal online friendship.  In my mind, that is the best you can have in an online relationship.  It is something special two of you share for a period of time, but it is known that it is not permanent.  Perhaps permanence can be had in a strictly online relationship, but it is much easier to establish that type of bond in a real life situation.

To sum it up.  Enjoy having fun and sharing with another fur online.  Just don't expect it to be as strong or as permanent as a bond as can be made between two people in real life.  Some times online relationships do become permanent, however I believe they usually go through a time where the two people meet in RL before it reaches that permanent status.

I realized that the online mate thing isn't what I wanted.  I think it's much more "realistic" (for me, anyway, I can only speak for myself, here) to just be friends online and "go after" ppl that I actually have a chance of seeing anytime soon irl.

It's actually a philosophy I have been trying to stick to all along, but I guess I kinda let myself get "carried away" for a short while.  Everyone wants to be in love, and I just let my lonliness get the best of me.

Hmm... yeah, that is understandable. Online you just cant... do things like you can in real life. Its really isnt the same. But... relationships online CAN turn out good, from what I've seen.

How long you said you'd have to wait to see the person though... I  guess that could be a bit off putting o.o

Well I suppose I will relate how I met my wonderful Snow Kittah...

Believe it or not, I happened across my beloved snow kittah, of all places, on Everquest, the online RPG. And it was by pure conincidence too! There was someone talking in the zone chat (thats where everyone in the same zone can see it) and mentioned something about being gay.. I had always wanted to have gay friends on EQ, so I messaged him, and found out, Hey! He's a fur too! So we started this global chat room for furs, and thats where I met my beloved Niveus. He moved from his server to mine, and we bonded instantly. That was 3 years ago.. Still together, planning on seeing each other next week. He lives in Canada where he attends school at the moment..

Online dating can be hard, but if your commited to the relationship things can turn out great.  I have at least 2 friends who've met the loves of their lives online.

Sure, a lot of times it means some heavy traveling (my one friend has to travel from Texas, USA to Toronto, Canada to see his girl; the other has to travel from Finland to Poland) to see that person IRL, but if you really love them then it's worth it.  Plus, the time you do get together IRL feels even more special.

Hi, just gotta give a shoutout to my boyfriend. Alex. We're holding on, we're even getting pretty dedicated. I do hope it will last. I'm all for it.

We met right here on these forums and we've been together ever since. We have really gotten to know each other. But his internet is down... and I can't send him snail mail or my mom will catch me.

Thanks to Furtopia!!! '<img'>

And while we're thanking people '<img'>, let me thank you for telling me about this place and helping me on my furry journey.  I dont think I ever gave you the proper "credit", heh.  And if you don't remember me, I was a bunny named Mystravyn back then.  And sorry if it seemed that I was ignoring you after we first met, but I kinda got cunfused and left for a while, then came back after I "rediscovered" myself.  But you played a big part in helping me out.  *hugs*

I just wanted to say that I'm back with her.  We really love each other and plan to eventually meet and then hopefully move in and stuff in the long run.  I have a good feeling about it all. '<img'>

I've had an online mate or two, but they've been more like good friends IRL/OOC, and only real mates when In Character, on the MUCKs we frequent.  It's still been wonderful with my current mate, a gryphon from Scotland.  (Can you just imagine the accent?  Murrrrrr, :KD )   There's no chance for anything deeper between us, even if I hopped the pond to go meet him, for he's afianced to an otter from Hawaii.   Thank goodness though, there's no conflict.  I've met the otter online, and found he's a wonderful person, though the opposite of the gryphon in many ways.  I'm nervous for them both, seeing them get together, planning on living together in Scotland and plotting their course through life.  I hate the thought of it not working out between them, and the devastation it would cause for them both...  
     Well, maybe someday a fur will come my way that makes the stars like to shine like I've had too much wine, ;K)  And hopefully they aren't already taken, o,O

I had a crush on two female furs, but they weren't big into online relationships at the time.  Confidentially, neither was I.  I want to be with someone in RL, preferably.  I met my lifemate, Raveness Wolf online back in June (using a furry online personal service), and we have chatted online, called each other, but best of all, we've spent weekends with each other.  I have found so much joy in her arms, and my happiness has no bounds.  We are very much interested in taking the next step and getting married within a year (we haven't formalized it yet, but we have promised ourselves to each other by the exchanging of some necklaces that we treasure).  I already plan to move in with her as soon as I can get a job in the Charlottesville, VA area.

I can't say enough for the Internet for meeting a mate, and it seems a lot of furs here have found that kind of wonder and thrill  '<img'>

I did have a really good mate once. He went by Maverick or Lancid. it was alot of fun and I sheded alot of tears. we even got married online. I am not sure if the whole thing was the product of a desire to be loved, or if it was real. i find myself thinking about it alot now that i am going to get married. A few years ago it became very hard for us to meet online. I guess times are hard in russia. It came to the point where I didn't see him anymore. Even though I very much loved him and wanted things to work, I realized they never would. Life led me to real life love a few times. I think I have it right now. I wonder if it's wrong that I still miss him.
My current mate and I have somethings in comman, but he doesn't really know what being furry means. He is a cowboy and i don't see many of them in the fandom.

My sweetpea and I were married last Sunday :-) We met five years ago on Slashdot. His chipmunk friend pointed out something I wrote to him and we met for coffee, and things just kept happening after that :-) I wasn't really a furry then, but I liked the art and community. We had quite a few furs at our wedding as well :-) I think even if we weren't furries, I would love him just as much. It's just one facet of our personalities :-)

Well, I dunno, I think it would be quite nice to have a furry love. Solely cause if love proved to be such a great thing Id most definatly want to shout out about it in art. And, lol, it would be odd to portray Leo with a human. Aside from my thinking it would look odd, I would imagine she would too, *shrugs* who knows, I havent met her yet, lol.

Hmm, who knows, I dont have a love yet, and am not looking for one (at least not directly). So I probably shouldnt have posted here yet, lol.

*ducks out*
I dont have a single track mind! Ive only got one train of thought. -.-;

I'm a happy asexual at this point.  Attraction and sex seem so unreal and distant -- it hasn't happened since now, and who knows how long it'll be?  One day I might be some chick's last resort --- but for now, I'm just happy cruising around Chicago with a dopey grin on my face.

Furry couples, eh? I'd definitely like to be in one, but never have being relitively new to this stuff.

Well, I will admit that since recently, me and another furry here ( '<img'> ) have been getting to know each other pretty well. The only problem is that we live kind of far from each other, and being in college currently, I don't see me getting a chance to see him in eprson anytime soon. But hey, if it's meant to be, it'll all work out.

And on a side note, congrats on those couples furry couples out there! ^^

Um I wouldn't exactly call it a furry relationship but I've only had one relationship with a girl so far and that didn't last too long. I really want to find a nice furry girl to settle down with or just go out, but it seems hopeless at this point.........

Congrats to both you and Chad!

Best wishes!  I hope you two can meet IRL very soon.

I was very blessed to move beyond the virtual relationship with my mate.  I see my Raveness Wolf now, just about every weekend.  The online relationship is great, but nothing beats being with your mate for real.

*smiles*  It's heartwarming to read all of these posts, I didn't think so many people would be able to find their mate through the internet.  '<img'>

I myself have been in a few furry relationships over the past couple of years, but they've never last more than a year.  Part of the reason I de-lurked actually was in hopes of finding that special someone in the community.  If any of you have any advice as to how to best accomplish that, I'd appreciate it, as I'm still trying to learn the best way to meet other furs.  ^^;

I really can't give very good advice on this subject.  Until now, my track record with females has been dismal.  I gave love, but they weren't ready.  Raveness Wolf is ready to commit as much as I want to commit.  I may have a young fursona, but I'm not in my 20's anymore.  I'm ready to settle down.  I tended to date much younger femmes, and they weren't down with committing to a much older male.  Raveness is close to my age, and she's ready to settle like me.

As for looking for a furry mate on the Internet, I did post an ad on Pounced, but on a dare.  Yet, for some reason, I maintained it.  As I was about to let the ad lapse and give up (by now, I had flunked out on Internet dating, twice, and I didn't want to strike out and get hurt again), Raveness made her move on me.  Let's just say that I'm glad that I didn't pull the ad down  '<img'>

Well, I'm not with the person I was talking about any more.  And I am now in the group that is pessimistic about online relationships.

And SaiQ, why haven't we met yet? '<img'>

I met my mate online using the furry personals at pounced.org. Almost a year and a half now. ^_^
Not interested in being in an article, but definitely wanted to share.

Well, lesse... I met my mate on Furcadia of all things. I wasn't looking for someone at the time. Just... someone to talk to. Get a friend. I was lonely. Anyway. I was in post-high school at the time, but had socked away a goodly amount of money. About 6 months after meeting online(and having exchanged phone calls and letters), I flew out to meet her(I lived in MN, she in MS). Three months later I finished up school and got a one-way ticket in my paws.

We certainly rushed things a bit, but both of us wanted a real mate and neither of us could really stand to wait around(especially for no real reason, I didn't have a good job or anything). We had fallen in love... c'est la vie. ':blush:' We've been married(legally mated... whatever you want to call it) nearly 2 years now, and we're quite happy.
