    Hey I'm brand new to this community and I love it already especially the art (can't draw very well but would love to improve) I live in a very small town so I'm kinda limited to the online community if anyone has any suggestion, comments, or just want to tell me something about starting out as a furry I would love to hear it

    Meets, cons, buying art, talking to people are but a few ways.

    Well, starting up as independent furry is rough, so the first thing you'll probably want to do is to find some furry manager. After that, do some fursuit gigs in your nearest mall, spread the word around, and work you way from there - you'll eventually earn respect from some major furry labels if you're talented enough at being a furry.

    Don't forget the quotas! in order to maintain one's "furriness", all new furries have to get no fewer than 10 other people to join the fandom (everyone has at least that many friends and/or relatives, right?) before earning full membership. Don't worry though, you can get around that requirement by simply ordering a Bad Dragon toy and using the promo code: "notices_ur_bulge".

    On this forum we have an initation ritual. How to perform the ritual, you ask?

    The steps:
    1. Sit on a chair that can turn
    2. Spin around EXACTLY 30 times
    3. Stand up, and do the monkey dance
    5. If you can do the monkey dance without looking like you're totally drunk, +1 point from me
    6. Stare at your dog/cat for 10 seconds. Intensely
    7. If either of you blink, you fail, and must do steps 1-6 again

    On a more serious note:
    Quite frankly, everyone's different. Everything from where they live, thought patterns, how social they are, etc. People have already given good suggestestions(apart from the sane ones) on how to "start out" in the fandom.

    Go to meets/cons. Meet new people. Find people your own age, and optionally, arrange a meeting if possible. The internet is the best tool to find people in your area.

    Start by wearing a tail and endure the pain of odd looks and stupid questions about it.

    Tell your religious family. Get sent to bible camp. Come back dressed like satan and tell them it didnt work. Get disowned. Buy an extra gay rainbow fursuit, where it to the Sturgis bike rally and survive. Make it no secret to your neighbors that you're a furry. Lose their trust immediately. That should get you thru the door.

    What helped for me is just being active on the forum, maybe seeking out a discord server or two, getting in touch with others like yourself and chatting casually.
    This can lead to inspirations on what you want to do, or maybe other venues to explore
