Furry dating apps/sites?

I've been thinking about looking into furry dating apps lately, both for dating and just meeting new people. However, I have seen a lot of complaints about specific ones. Scams, minors using them, poor moderation, etc.

Are there any that folks are content with, even if only in comparison to others? I looked into Howlr briefly but it seemed the main complaint was that it had so few users.

Stay away from Ferzu unless you like attention-starving lunatics. Who are too afraid to actually meet up.
Howlr from what I know had that zoophilia debacle, so that's a no from me.
Furrymate I'd argue is a scam considering something as basic as DM's is a subscriber-only feature.

You're better off dating outside the fandom, mate. I'd recommend checking out OKCupid and/or Tinder. Or you can join larger groups, such as on Telegram, Discord, +++, and start looking around.

funnily enough, me and a buddy of mine bought a domain recently with the idea of a furry dating site that's completely devoid of the problems the other sites/apps have, and is completely supported by donations, as opposed to subscriptions. it's been a pretty steady process, and we already have a decent following on discord/telegram. we're hoping to have the site functional and open to the public within the upcoming months.

Honestly, in my experience the best way to find a furry to date is to just mess around furry sites/channels/subreddits/groups and go to some conventions, rather than rely on specific dating sites. Socialize, chat with people, visit various local anthro circles, and eventually you'll find somebody to love. I mean, I've found my first girlfriend that way back in the day, and that was purely accidental, lol.

In addition to the above you could always bite the bullet and try going to meets if able to which could lead to a number of things. Who knows, you might get lucky.
I've never been able to find meets in my area though, even through groups for it

Oh cool, man!

Let me know how it goes, okay?

If there's no good non-furry dating apps what is to be expected of furry ones?

Wouldn't mind using one as a way to meet, mainly since I doubt I'd find anyone and how I don't trust myself to find love.

Sounds like a personal problem
The 2nd part, yes. I don't feel compactable with people, but even I accepted that and just want to friend friends.
But the first one is just the case of most if not all of the dating apps are bad, unless there's some magical one that isn't bad.
Only thing I'll use for finding friends is Discord, it's not the best, but it's not bad.

Wow yeah this is such a good idea, I’d love to meet other furry girlz but because of my BPD, GAD, OCD, BDD and fear of pigeons I can’t get out much to meet other people. Getting to know other furries who share my interests in a safe space free from prejudice would be hella awesome. Please let me know if you find somewhere OP!

I never thought I'd find a compatabile furry mate but I ended up finding @Tayoria here on FAF. *shrugs*

Just chat and meet ppl here and elsewhere. Find friends and eventually you might find someone special for you.

Gotta say, I miss pounced. Being able to see furries near me was great. Made quite a few friends that way. I wish someone would find a way to bring it back.

What about fur meets on meetup.com?

I use meetup somewhat regularly if I want to join something that focuses on a niche. Although it is dependent on how populated your area is too. You might have to venture into a city for meetups and I'm fortunate enough to be not too far from Manhattan.

I'm in Portland, so you'd think it'd work out well, but every time I've tried going to one it's fallen apart somehow. Today there was an event I spent a couple months planning on, everyone who offered to carpool cancelled one way or another, so I'm thinking I'll keep it online for now.

Huh, that's kind of unfortunate... I would've guessed the west coast would've been a bit more ahead of the curve with the meetup thing.

I'm single and I live near Seattle, what's up
