Take Things Slowly

Everyone's story will be different. Discovering you are in a MOR can be a rollercoaster but it can also be a beautiful journey into knowing and better understanding, not only this person that you love but also yourself. There are going to be many questions and that is completely normal. Both partners must have empathy for each other. Dishonesty hurts, but so does having to suppress an integral part of yourself. Expressing your emotions calmly and lovingly will help avoid having breakdowns in communication. Try to keep respect, patience, and honesty at the forefront of every conversation. Taking things slowly and moving at a comfortable pace for all involved is going to be another key to success.

Mixed orientation relationships absolutely can succeed, and that success can come in many forms. For some, success means moving forward together with a deeper level of respect, love, and acceptance. It can mean just knowing your partner on a deeper level or it can mean you allow your partner to explore their sexuality however they feel they need to. For others, success can mean being able to separate amicably and with love in your hearts. There is no right or wrong way to get through this life; a lot of it is just how we handle what is thrown at us. What does a successful mixed orientation relationship look like to you?

We get it. Talking about sex and sexuality can be awkward but in the right setting with the right resources, it really doesn't have to be...

We understand that we are all on our own journey and we understand the importance of member anonymity. We've created a safe space to facilitate private conversations privately.


The MOR Community is an international gathering of MOR partners and spouses. Together in this private setting, we explore what it means to be in a mixed orientation relationship and how that differs in each relationship. We are so glad that you found us and we would love for you to join us in our discussions as we work together to eliminate MOR stigmas.
