I always wanted to share this experience, but I was afraid of being called a liar, or laughed at saying I “made it up.” To this day, my parents don’t even know this happened. What I’m about to tell you is as true as I can state it, and an experience that still haunts my mind to this very day. I was a 16 year old girl at the time, but not a very happy one. I was bullied in school, and had my heart broken several times by guys who often manipulated me.
I had one best friend, whom I’m still friends with to this very day.
In short, I was very alone, and to escape that, I turned to social media. At the time, I mainly browsed Omegle, then Facebook by creating a furry role play account. I just discovered what the fandom was, it seemed nice and friendly. I chatted with people, and slowly made new friends. However, one day I got a friend request that I wish I never accepted.
