As stated in my last post, I will be covering a large portion of the romantic orientations defined as of today. Romantic orientation differs from sexual orientation in that sexual orientation refers to a relatively more physical attraction, while romantic orientation refers to an attraction with little to no regards to physical intimacy. Additionally, it is important to point out that one can have a sexual preference that differs from their romantic preference, and vice versa.
Heteroromantic: one who has a romantic attraction to people of another gender.
Biromantic: typically one who has a romantic attraction towards males and females.
Homoromantic: one who has a romantic attraction towards people of the same gender.
Panromantic: one who is romantically attracted to people of all genders/regardless of gender.
Aromantic: one who does not experience romantic attraction to people of any gender.
Alloromantic: one who experiences romantic attraction in a manner considered to fall within the societal norm (i.e. technically the opposite of aromantic).
Polyromantic: one who feels romantic attraction towards many, but not all, genders.
Demiromantic: one who feels romantic attraction only after they form a close emotional bond with someone.
Gray-romantic: one who does not experience romantic attraction often, but is still capable of experiencing romantic attraction.
Gyneromantic: one who is romantically attracted to femininity, regardless of gender.
Androromantic: one who is romantically attracted to masculinity, regardless of gender.
Akoi/Lithromantic: one who experiences romantic attraction/enjoys romantic relationships in a theoretical point of view until that attraction is reciprocated.
Frayromantic: one who experiences romantic attraction towards strangers or those they are unfamiliar with, to which fades once they get to know the person.
Idemromantic: one who does not experience romantic and platonic attraction differently, but rather differentiates between platonic and romantic based on other factors.
Recipromantic: one who feels romantic attraction to another person only after knowing that person is attracted to them first.
Skilo/Ceteromantic: one who experiences romantic attraction towards those who identify as non-binary.
Abroromantic: one whose romantic attraction fluctuates towards different gender expressions.
Schroromantic: one who feels a mix of romantic attraction and a lack thereof.
Noviromantic: one who experiences a complex romantic attraction/lack of romantic attraction in a manner of which they are unable to define/ feel like it cannot be defined in a single term.
Aegoromantic: one who enjoys the concept of romance, but is not interested in actually involving themselves in romantic activities.
Apathromantic: one who is indifferent to romance in both receiving and giving romantic gestures.
Acoromantic: one whose negative experiences regarding romance has affected their ability to “be romantic” for lack of a better phrase.
It is important to note that certain romantic orientations such as apathromantic, demiromantic, and gray-romantic technically fall under/tie in to the category of aromanticism, but however; expand further on the big picture of just how complex and wide a variety of romantic attractions or lack thereof are out there.
