I've had..two boyfriends. Well I only count one since the other lasted only 2 weeks. But going strong with my LDR of 3 years! Anyways both of them knew/know. They didn't care or encouraged it. they don't mind my want to have a partial fursuit either.

I'm a 30 years old single. The reason why i'm single is because I scare girls with my furry fandom stuffs.

I've never truly been in a relationship yet. I have something close, now, and I think getting closer... Ah, life, love, so many grey areas...

I'm a really good looking guy, but I can't get any girls.

Alright, I've been told I'm a really good looking guy. Some people I have never even met have told me I could be a model. Girls, even my guy friends (in a non homosexual way) say I could be a model. Now, I know some of you will say looks aren't at all that important, but I feel like it's really starting to take a toll on my self-esteem. I'm 18 and I've never had a girlfriend, never got it in and whenever I came close...the girl would pull the friend card on me.

I am good looking, educated and a good, nice & sweet person. I stay in shape, and get along with anyone. Never held hands or touch, I've never kissed anyone. I've never even been kissed. I've never dated anyone. And I've never really fallen in love with anyone. I haven't let myself, because I don't trust people, and my self-preservation has been more important to me than sex. (Not that I don't know quite a bit about my own... um, self-pleasure?)

I'm on the edge of having to permanently given up all hope to ever find a girl. A family, kids, all that is not relevant to me anymore. I wonder if I'll be able to keep on living this life. But one thing is for sure, this situation is depressing and if I wasn't stronger, I would have suicided long before.

I am going to go out on a limb and say have you ever tried talking to a girl...without coming off like a socially inept geek. Like "Can I have some of your hair" and "I like your mouth"?

Reguardless of looks, it could be your personallity that may set off some red flags to girls. If you come off as desperate, then it sets people off. If you also appear to be ACTIVELY looking for a girl, it can set people off.

I've got a boyfriend. We've been together for a year and a half. He accepts me being a furry. Heck, he even wants me to make him a fursuit!

Well, sometimes I get asked by my friends why I don't have a girlfriend. After seeing the circus surrounding the Kardashian sisters and their many, many divorced husbands and boyfriends, I realize "I don't have a girlfriend because I don't have enough money" is actually a valid reason. And between being able to afford the best video games and their systems, gasoline and groceries, and of course, all this wonderful Furry art, I don't have enough money left over to buy the things that would impress a girlfriend (tickets to the opera, expensive food at luxury restaurants... for two, and a house that is NOT a $700-a-month college apartment) so I'll have to pass on the whole experience of courtship. And then there's the whole problem with the kind of interests that I do have not really being the kind of things that prospective wives would want- just for future reference, having walls of Furry art, anime convention programs in the book shelves, and a Japanese flag above your bedroom door does not make women like you more. So there you have it: no money left over from various "nerdy" collections and the fact that those collections are not attractive to women serve as a double whammy for my sex life. Sure, I have money but I'm not particularly interested in taking a wife yet.

Never have had a partner in any sense or way, kinda doubtful if I ever really will.

Even if I did though, I'm a very secretive person anyway so I'd probably never tell.

I wasn't the first to introduce my boyfriend to this fandom, but I was the one to get him to be "apart" of it in a sense. I generally call myself a furry because I have a fursona and anyone outside the fandom would deem me as a furry because of that, lol. I just like roleplaying and spamming my characters in peoples faces for them to draw.

I started dating my current bf last year, when I was still sort of unsure about the whole furry thing. I was curious about it, but I was nervous about getting involved with it. With the help of a furry friend at school I was able to become more of a part of it and I'll be suiting for the first time this fall! I'm so excited. I told my bf about it and he accepted and understood why I wanted to do it, but he's a bit nervous about telling anyone else about it. Word's GOING to get out in october when pictures surface on my fb and I plan to be really open about it by then, just let everyone know so it can stop being a secret. But I know he's going to get a lot of flack from his friends about it. :/

I didn't have a real bf until I was 18, so all those who are younger than that, complaining about not having someone, give it time. It'll happen. As people get older they become more open and less erratic with their emotions than they were as teenagers and it may be easier to have a relationship with someone. I know I for one will NEVER understand what i saw in all my teenage crushes. They were all foolish, childish little boys. My bf is 23 and I just appreciate his maturity so much when it's time to get serious about things. Needless to say he's a complete goof all the other times lol but the fact that he's able to be both is amazing.
 
I've only ever been in one relationship in my time and that lasted half a day. So I have no idea if that counts. I'm not bothered though as I kind of like being single. That and me being 17 as I am, there's no point worrying with all of those years ahead of me.
 
My boyfriend and I have been together for just over a year. We live together, so of course he knows that I enjoy the furry fandom.
We went to MegaCon together, I was dressed as a raccoon and he didn't dress up at all.
He's not a furry, though.
He sometimes makes jokes about the fandom though, like lame puns about furry porn and whatnot.
So. Yeah.

I don't really do well with traditional dating. I prefer private, casual hook-ups or short flings.
Keeps things neat and simple, I think.
Plus it leaves me room to float between sexualities without having to be committed to one or the other.

I have a boyfriend and we've been together for 8 months. He has accepted my furry side and really likes my artwork but he is not a furry himself.

Pff, I don't think impressing girls is about how much money someone has. At least, not for me. I think what most people find attractive is looks and personality. "Loving" someone just because they have alot of money is rather shallow and selfish. Hypothetically, if I had a boyfriend who can't afford to do something expensive, that's fine, I believe that intimacy and positive interaction are way more important. Though if it were a distant relationship, it would really help to able to afford to meet, because it can really help strengthen a bond with the intimacy. I wouldn't mind having furry art, but then that's because I like it. I think it's a common misconception that woman generally don't like anthro animal art, infact a lot of female furries are artists themselves (including me).

Disclaimer: I'm not flirting.

I have a boyfriend; we've been together now a little over a year and a half :3 He's not a furry himself, but he's okay with the clean art; even uses one piece he found that he says "Reminds him of us" as desktops on various devices now and then, so I'd say he's supportive.

This year was a mess, starting from October I had (about) 4-5 "mates" in a row, but now I'm a little more steady

it wasn't a fun time x.x

I'm polyamorous. Both of my mates (yes, I'm a dumb who uses that term, it's conveniently gender-neutral) are furries, and I actually met them through the fandom. Greg, aka BrokenPaw, doesn't really go on FA much; the other is someone most of you would know: Sarukai. :> Been with both of them for a few months now, and hopefully will be for a long time.
 
I currently have a boyfriend who is also a furry (who I met through the community). :)

I consider my ex a furry even though he insisted that he wasn't. He rped solely on Furcadia and all of his characters were furries... But that's neither here nor there. Regardless, I'd count him. :p
