Abroromantic individuals experience their romantic orientation as fluid and/or changing over time. Although other kinds of fluidity may involve changes in the genders one is attracted to, abroromanticism involves one's entire orientation changing over time. The intensity of their attractions may change as well.[2]

Etymology[]

The prefix "abro-" comes from the Greek habrós, meaning "graceful" or "delicate".[3][4] This symbolizes the movement and changing nature of people who are abroromantic.[5]


Flag[]

The abroromantic flag is the same as the abrosexual one but with a heart overlaid to represent romantic attraction.

Distinction[]

Abroromantic vs Abrosexual[]

An abroromantic individual may want a romantic relationship but not necessarily want to have sex. In contrast, an abrosexual individual may want to have sex but not necessarily want a romantic relationship.
