my not-so-furry-b/f and me
« on: April 17, 2006, 07:22:14 pm »
so I have  a b/f!!  i probably could have made a whole seperate post about how that came about, and maybe i will later, but the more pressing subject I need advice about first.

So basically we're both furries, but we never talk about furry stuff or do anything furry together, and I don't know what to do about it.  I relaly want to get into fursuiting, so I mentioned to him that I was interested, and he pretty much just laughed.  He wasn't trying to be mean, but he said fursuiting is pretty ridiculous and he could never get into it.

so that idea is out.  I'm not sure what we can do to have fun as *furries* togheter.

so what do you furs all do?

*edited* turned tracking on, lol

well, you can't force him into fursuting... I say that even if you're both furries, you don't have to like the same aspect of the fandom.
Live and let live. =n-n=
Maybe you can find about something else you both like?

Well, that's a shame!  Your boyfriend is missing out on a whole lot of fun.  I don't really know what to say, though, some people just aren't into the whole fursuiting thing.  

Have you two been to a convention?  Seeing the fursuiters in person might change his mind (I thought it was rather stupid too, until I saw them in person.  Now I can't get enough of it!'<img'>.

Yeah, i used to not like fursuiting much either, but i have grown quite fond of at least checking out pics and videos of fursuits and cons, heh. Hey, how about just take him to a convention, well, if you can afford it an stuff. He dose not need to be into fursuiting or anything to enjoy the whole furry world some more. Hell, get him on here! im shure that should help 'ya out . '<img'>

Pfft, you're lucky you found another furry to be with. My bf accepts that I'm one, but he avoids the subject at all costs. I actually prefer it that way...like how I avoid bringing up the sports, ugh. Though it would be nice to express my furry side around him a little more without that awkward pause. I should rent a suit for a day just to watch him sweat.  ':p'

And now....I am jealous, so grrr!

so what do you furs all do?

Am not sure "what" makes an activity "furry"?  I mean outside of actual furry events (cons, parties, meets, etc) what makes something a "furry" activity?

My wife and I go to movies, Disneyland, shows, play vidgames, goof on the computer and such.  Am not sure if any of those would be considered "furry".  Well, when we play Shrek she is Donkey.  Is THAT furry?

What are your interests that ARE furry?  I mean do you both look at furry art?  read furry fiction?  have furry friends?

And what do you usually do together that is "not furry"?

Buy two collars, each with yours/his name on the front, and the other's contact info on the back with "if lost;"

I always thought that'd be cool.

thats an ADORABLE idea '<img'>


but i know you WANT to be furry with him, so why not ask him say 'What type of furry things do you like to do/' that should answer everything for you. '<img'>
