And as a matter of fact, i did indeed get to. on behalf of being reminded after a good moment partying on Second Life with an interesting girl i was greeted by at a virtual nightclub, i discovered furries thus became one since that next month after. i was so enlightened with a reason to have times like never before. having yet to know about Fursuiting even then until two years ago.

After a while I started to look into less adult furry artwork/literature. It then got to the point that it was such a part of my life that I joined a forum to talk about it with other who felt the same... And here I am.

Turns out that that's not how things work. At that point I got interested in werewolves, as they were a way to get infected with something that turns you into a wolf. Wolf wasn't my 'ideal' animal, but it was something I still thought I could try. Being anti-internet at that point, I read on books, but couldn't find much, that went on right through to 2007 when I got my first computer, with internet connection to boot. I finally got into werewolves, and was pretty much hit with the site Deviantart's massive collection of art.
I started reading transformation comics, and ended up on Kaerwyn as an RP. There I played my first anthro character, but I still didn't recognise myself as a furry, let alone know they existed. 2009 I FINALLY found out about the furry fandom, as in the full blown "oh hey... it's an actual fandom?" kind of dumb realisation. 2010 I tentatively stood into furry ground, stating myself as 'furry, but not extreme furry'. Even then I wasn't convinced. In fact it wasn't until about mid June when I finally said honestly to myself, 'Hey... I'm actually a furry," and believed myself. I'm somewhat stubborn that way.
So that's my 12 year orientation, 2 year trial, 1 month full membership of the furry fandom.

Fast-forward a few years to about May this year, and I happen to stumble upon a Furry blog on Tumblr. I liked the art, which lead me to do some Googling, to find out exactly what "Furry" was. I then found FurAffinity and a few other sites, all of them being pretty U.S. centric so far. I searched up something like "Australia furry" and eventually wound up here.
Like a lot of other people, I guess it was just a matter of discovering that there was a whole community behind all this.
