Many asexuals put emphasis on their (a)romantic orientations. And as there are many different romantic orientations within the asexual community, we felt it was time for an overview for those wanting to learn more.
A heteroromantic is someone who feels romantically attracted to a member of the opposite sex or gender identity.
A biromantic is someone who feels romantically attracted to two or more genders, often including their own.
A panromantic is someone who feels romantically attracted to someone regardless of sex or gender identity.
A homoromantic is someone who feels romantically attracted to a member of the same sex or gender identity.
A gray-romantic (or grey-romantic) is someone who’s orientation is in between that of aromantic and alloromantic. For example, a gray-romantic may experience romantic attraction but not desire a romantic relationship, or experiences romantic attraction but not often. A gray-romantic may desire a relationship that is not quite platonic and not quite romantic.
A demiromantic is someone who only feels romantically attracted to someone after forming a deep emotional bond and falls under the gray-romantics.
An aromantic is someone who’s not interested in a romantic relationship.
We understand that the asexual community is always growing and evolving. Obviously the same can be said about the romantic orientations within the asexual community. That’s why we try to update our existing content regularly. We will provide as much information as possible on our website. Want to start meeting other asexuals, demisexuals and everything in between?
