Rhyner has published a guide to chatting with furries and overcoming one’s anxiety and self-doubt. If you have a hard time starting up a conversation with furries, you’ll certainly find this helpful.
Note that not all conversations have the same flow, and you definitely shouldn’t force yourself into the confines of [a] template structure.
