Well now this makes a lot more sense.

However, the fact that this is an awful idea still stands. I don't know how things work across the pond for the mentally handicapped but I'm sure you can find some sort of a job that you can enjoy doing and make a living off of. Living off disability checks so you can be a super specially yiffy murry furry IRL is not going to be good for you or satisfying. Like, at all. It is a very bad idea.
You sound like a Steppenwolf fan, no? You should really read it if not.Hence why I mention Lupine Pack. The convergence of human intellect with wolfish behaviour. The human intellect would tell the wolfish side to not pee on a lamp post.
@OP I commend you for not flipping a shit at the negative responses. You've got more of a level head than most. Here's what I think, and I hope you consider what I'm saying without rejecting my criticism outright. You did ask for input after all. I could go on for pages and pages, but I'll keep it short and sweet.
You want to have a special connection with someone. Life dealt you a lousy hand, and you want to make the best of it. You also have an interest in the furry fandom. Am I right so far?
This is all great. Everyone wants to be able to connect with other people on a deep and meaningful level. Under bad circumstances everyone will try to make the best of them. And everyone has a hobby or some interest that others would probably find strange.
I understand you have an unusually high level of interest in the whole furry thing, but let me ask you something. Do you think it will make it easier to connect with people if you artificially impose this pack dynamic? Before you tell me that you really do feel like a wolf inside and that it's not artificial, it's who you really are, or some other nonsense, I want to make it clear that you are in fact a human being with very human desires. At some point you will sit down and start thinking to yourself how fake it all seems.
If you manage to find a partner willing to do this, you will never develop your relationship beyond the canned roles you assume when you enter this agreement. Most people find it difficult enough to connect with someone WITHOUT an artificial code of conduct. You're instantly placing a big wall between yourselves.
Want to know what you should do instead? Do whatever it takes to make yourself productive. You want to go to America? Get an education? Save up your disability cash and fucking do it. Find an employer who will pay you to do work that you can manage. Try again even if you fail a hundred times. That's the kind of thing that makes people feel worthwhile. Something with tangible results. When you set a goal for yourself and you finally achieve it, that feels fucking awesome.
And if you're lucky enough to find someone you care about, tell them how you feel. Tell them how much you want to be in a meaningful relationship. With any luck they'll feel the same way. And if not, fuck it, move along. Ditch the escapist fantasies and live your goddamn life.
The problem is, your "civvy" street isn't profitable and you'll just continue to leech off of whatever welfare programs you're on, all the while degrading into some furfag fantasy world.I have explored my options for five years onwards now. There isn't much hope for me in the world of commerce and 'normal' civvy street. So I am making a street of my own, whether it is a new design or not. It can't be any worse than what I have been through in the last 24 years.
I think manchild is rather appropriate here since he has a pretty childish idea in mind.
Personally I think he is capable of getting a job and is just making excuses for his laziness. Of course I do not personally know the man so I could be off but this is just a guess based on his actions in the thread.In which case he should be living with some sort of parental authority. If you don't have the mentality to flip burgers or stock shelves, you don't have the mentality to live alone. Hell I worked at gamestop and alphabetized the shelves, all day, every day, and it was actually pretty damn fun. I just had to dress nice and know the alphabet.
