Lindsay commented on our "Observations on Dating Otherkin" article, so we contacted her for more information about her personal otherkin experiences.
Some days her phantom wings feel really intense. Other days she contemplates whether those feelings are only in her head. Was she really a dragon in a past life, or are her otherkin experiences purely psychological?
While 29-year-old Lindsay has identified with draconity for over 15 years, she has accepted that she will never know the truth. However, she does know that people unfamiliar with otherkin may think dating one would be weird.

Whether it’s the popularity of vampires and werewolves, or the prevalence of niche online dating sites, more people seem to be identifying with nonhuman species known as otherkin. They are mythological beings like elves, satyrs, fairies, and dragons, as well as animals, angels, demons, aliens, furries and others.
Singles who consider themselves otherkin often look for fellow kin when it comes to dating, however many others believe their soul mates can be any species. Some who have otherkin for significant others, or are otherkin themselves, offer this advice for anyone considering this type of relationship.
