What is the meaning of 'aroace'?

"Aroace" is a term used in the LGBTQ+ community and stands for someone who identifies as both aromantic and asexual. Let's break down these two components:

  1. Aromantic (short : Aro): Aromantic individuals experience little to no romantic attraction to others. This means that they may not feel the desire for romantic relationships or may experience romantic feelings less frequently or intensely than what is considered typical in society.

  2. Asexual (short : Ace): Asexuality is a sexual orientation characterized by a lack of sexual attraction to others. Asexual individuals may not experience sexual attraction or may experience it infrequently. Asexuality is a spectrum, and individuals may identify as fully asexual, demisexual (experiencing sexual attraction only in the context of a close emotional bond), or somewhere in between.

When someone identifies as aroace, it means they do not experience significant romantic or sexual attraction. This term reflects the complexity and diversity of human experiences, acknowledging that not everyone's journey involves conventional romantic or sexual relationships. Aroace individuals may still form deep, meaningful connections with others but do not necessarily seek or experience romantic or sexual feelings. Recognising and respecting aroace identities contributes to a more inclusive understanding of the diverse spectrum of human experiences within the LGBTQ+ community.
