Why did you/want to be a furry?

Recommended Posts

Furlover   

I think many people can recognise this story, but for as long as I lived always liked animal characters in films.

I simply watched an entire movie just to see the point of an anthro character or a talking animal.

Watched a huge amount of disney movies like: the sleeping beauty (dragon transformation scene),

The Lion King (obvious reasons), Brother Bear, and Robin Hood.

 

Later on I noticed my thought about changing to animal forms hadn't changed, and

started trying to find sites about it. I then Encounterd sites we all know like Furaffinity, Sofurry, e621.net etc.

 

Not untill recent I started trying to delve into hypnosis. And I must say I really like it so far!

It really started with tails from Sonic the Hedgehog. I was like 8 or 9 years old at the time and have since grown to love furry for it's community and artwork but back then I had a few anthro characters I really loved to pretend I was.

My whole life, I've simply been enraptured with animals, and more specifically dragons. I was severely bullied, and I found comfort through stories and drawings of dragons and ferries. I wouldn't say I suffer from body dysmorphia disorder, as I feel comfortable in my current body, but I'd feel much more comfortable and right in that of a dragon.

A few reasons, but I've always had an affinity for animals.  Better with them then people usually.  Plus I love the feelings of fur, fluff, feathers, and scales.

Guess I'm considered one of the people who didn't get to choose to be one. As for the reason for that? I haven't a clue.

Literally been one for as long as I can remember.

I've tried for years to pin-point exactly what caused me to be a furry, but Haven't found anything. I have some theories but they're a bit too farfetched for my liking.

(Although pretty amazing by themselves).

Heck, I'll just list them out here: 1. Native Heritage [This would mean that at some point I possibly got the spirit animal of my ancestors];

2. Always have been treated like an animal (sub-human for lack of a better description); 

3. Two spirits becoming intertwined somehow; (should be self-explanatory)

4. Literally always a wolf in my dreams (I have absolutely no explanation for why this is, but yes, I am always a wolf in my dreams. Most of the time Feral [walk on all fours, ect.] but occasionally Anthro)

any of these theories could help explain why I associate more as a furry, but they're pretty unlikely... [except number 4. that still happens to this day, that is over 6,570 consistent dreams where I'm a wolf!]

- Anyways, Sorry for Necroing the thread again. But it seems like tradition now for new comers to post here. I also enjoyed reading everyone's reasons.

I became a furry after I met a friend who is a furry, I did a bit of reaserch on it after he told me he was one. And the fandom / community really interested me and I found that I fit into the community really well

I have found that becoming a furry is not as bad as people make out and there is no need to hide it. In my experience it was a great division to become one as it helped with my self confidence to be my own personality and it also helped me to socialise 

Sorry for the double post btw

I am in it strictly for the transformations. I like the art work and I rarely roleplay. 

I found a fascination with hypnosis, which lead to the discovery and fascination with anthros which lead to the discovery of furries which lead me to here
