Aromanticism or aromanticity is a romantic orientation in which a person does not experience romantic attraction, whether entirely, partially or circumstantially.[1] They may not feel romantic love, and may not feel the need to be in romantic relationships. It doesn't mean they are agamous.[2][3][4]

They can have any sexual orientation, be asexual, bisexual, heterosexual, homosexual, pansexual, polysexual, omnisexual, pomosexual, or ceterosexual. It's often shortened to aro.[5][6][7]
