Aromantic

Pronunciation:
|ˌarəˈmantik|
Definition:

An orientation which is typified by a lack of desire or interest in creating and fostering romantic relationships.



Someone who is aromantic is not necessarily asexual. It is entirely possible that an aromatic individual can experience sexual attraction and interest in other people.

Example:

Herbert: “I do like you, I’m just aromantic, so I’d prefer if this were just a friends with benefits thing.”
Linda: “You mean, you want to have all the sexual parts of a romantic relationship, but not the romantic relationship?”
Herbert: “Yes.”
Linda: “Oh so you’re like every other male on earth?”
