This, a hundred times. My spouse knows about and enables the hobbies she doesn't herself enjoy (furry,video games) and ame we havr a few a few hobbies we love together (dancing, board games, movies) If you insist someone have a certain hobby or interest before you even meet them you will exclude a lot of potentially wonderful matesI'd imagine it doesn't really matter if you're a furry or no and that a (good) partner probably wouldn't care. In a best case scenario they'd probably try to support you in your hobby. People don't need to necessarily have the exact same interests to date after all. Its cool to try and aim to meet and date people with similar common interests though, because as you yourself said OP, having someone to participate in a hobby with can be fun! I can't really help you on how to find people as I've never really had a partner, but it helps to try and go out and meet people. Make accounts on dating sites if you need to. The easiest way to meet that special someone is to put yourself out there I'd imagine. If you're aiming to date another furry, I think there are furry dating sites? I have no idea how good they are. You could also try going to cons and meeting people that way.
Tbh I kinda need help meeting people myself. But a lot of that is due to my own social issues. I simply can't talk to people. Its hard.
