Definition:

Demiromantic is a form of sexual orientation characterized by delayed romantic attraction. When someone is demiromantic, they do not experience a typical romantic attraction to another person until an emotional connection is developed beforehand.



It is somewhat common for demiromantic individuals to stop feeling romantic attraction towards their partner when they enter the relationship.

Example:

Despite Chris’ advances, Jane did not see him as anything more than a friend. But once they became closer, she developed a romantic attraction, and they began to date shortly after that.
