As you can all probably tell, I'm a new furry looking for guidance. I've denied myself for so long that now I see how life is just passing me by. So I've decided to come out of the "furry closet" so to speak. I want to meet other people and understand the community, to interact as others do. I know I have a lot to learn about the communication and behavior of a furry, and I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me learn what I need to learn. I live in Syracuse, Utah, and have yet to find any place that furry friendly people congregate. I would like to meet others like me in the hopes of making friends. I like hiking and camping as the wild calls to me, and like a wolf, having a pack of my own friends to support and be supported by appeals to me. I also would like to know how to get in touch with somebody that can help me create my first fursona image, as well as eventually obtaining a fursuit. I don't know if there are any conventions for the furry community that are going to be happening anytime soon because of covid, but I would like to attend any functions that the furry community attends. Any help would be appreciated and welcome. Thank you for letting me join your community, and I look forward to getting to know you all. Sincerely, FureverWolf Utah (facebook name) PS - my fursona is a wolf/ fox hybrid that's blue gray and red. Like a wolf I can be serious and defensive when need be, but as fun and playful and joking as a trickster fox.
