What is the meaning of 'aromantic'?

In the LGBTQ+ community, "aromantic" (short: aro) is a term used to describe individuals who experience little to no romantic attraction to others. They may lack the desire for romantic relationships or may experience romantic feelings infrequently or in a way that differs from societal norms.

Key aspects of aromantic identity include:

  1. Absence of Romantic Attraction: They do not feel a significant desire for romantic relationships. This doesn't mean they lack close, meaningful connections with others, but the romantic aspect of relationships is not a primary focus.

  2. Spectrum of Aromanticism: Aromanticism exists on a spectrum, and individuals may identify as fully aromantic or somewhere along the spectrum. Some may experience romantic attraction infrequently, while others may not experience it at all.

  3. Platonic Relationships: They may prioritise and value platonic relationships, friendships, and other non-romantic connections. These relationships can be just as deep and fulfilling as romantic ones.

  4. Self-Identification: They may use terms like "aromantic" or "aro" to describe their identity. Self-identification is crucial, and individuals may choose the label that best reflects their experience.

Understanding and acknowledging aromantic identities contribute to a more inclusive and affirming environment within the LGBTQ+ community. It is important to respect individuals' unique experiences of attraction and recognise the diversity of romantic and non-romantic orientations within the community.
