Romantic orientation refers to the gender or sex to which one is drawn to for romantic relationships. This is not the same as sexual orientation which refers to the gender or sex with which one feels compelled to engage sexually. As is the case with sexual orientation, there are multiple romantic orientations:
- Heteroromantic: romantically attracted to people of a different gender and/or sex.
- Homoromantic: romantically attracted to one's same gender and/or sex.
- Biromantic/Panromantic: romantically attracted to multiple genders and/or sexes.
- Aromantic: not romantically attracted to any gender and/or sex.
