and Mixed Orientation Marriages
Do you have questions or concerns about bisexual feelings or fantasies?
Are you trying to sort out and explore your sexual
identity? Does it feel like your sexual identity is fluid or just
doesn't fit the categories?
Are you in a mixed orientation marriage? Mixed
orientation relationships are those in
which your sexual identity/orientation differs from your partner's. An
example is a bisexual man married to a straight (heterosexual) woman.
Aren't bisexuals just closet gays (trying to play it
straight)? This is one of the most common myths about bisexuals.
Another myth is that bisexuals can
never settle down and be happy with a single partner of either sex. The
myths about bisexuality are damaging to all
I know the challenges and difficulties of being
am a monogamous bisexual and I have been in several mixed orientation relationships and
I help individuals and
couples come out
shadows so they can talk honestly, grow in their
understanding of their sexual identity, negotiate healthy boundaries
ways of being
together, and decide if they will continue in relationship together. I have led support groups in Tampa for men, bisexuals, and
mixed orientation couples.
