An aromantic is someone who does not experience romantic attraction.

About aromanticsEdit

An aromantic person is an individual who does not experience romantic love or attraction, although this does not preclude them from feeling other forms of love or attraction, such as platonic love. Keep in mind, aromanticisim is a spectrum, so people may experience different forms of attraction, but still consider themselves to be aromantic.

Aromantics may be interested in relationships without romance involved, such as platonic life partnerships. Platonic, for lack of better definition, is like friendship.

Aromantics may feel sexual attraction or be on the asexuality spectrum. Being aromantic does not determine sexuality but can impact a person's ability to act on their sexuality.

For various thoughts in regards to aromanticism, see the myths.

Aromantic is sometimes abbreviated as "aro". And aromanticism is the noun that refers to aromantics.

First proposed aromantic flag. This flag created issues by being too similar to the colours of the Rastafarian and Jamaican flags, and thus a replacement was created to avoid creating confusion.
