More specifically, I'm looking for people who unintentionally met a furry in a setting where such a meeting was unusual. So, going to Anthrocon and meeting a furry there doesn't count. Story time: Back when I was in highschool, there was this one girl in my math class who sat next to me. On her binder were drawings of One Direction but with cat ears. I started up a conversation with her about the drawings (because there was a fuckload of those sorts of drawings on her binder) and she said that she was a furry. Since I didn't think of myself as a furry at the time and I thought it was a fetish, I dismissed her as strange and didn't talk about her binder again. I really regret not getting closer to her now that I'm a furry though. I mean, it would probably be pretty entertaining to have a friend live so close and have such a rare interest in common. Anyone else have a similar experience?
