The Coeosexual flag by Reddit User Sirpurple04

Coeosexual is a sexuality on the asexual spectrum that is the opposite of demisexual. One who is coeosexual will only feel sexual attraction to someone if they developed that feeling upon meeting them the first time, and is similar to the concept of "Love at First Sight".

Coeosexual individuals can experience sexual attraction for folks they have not met before, although these feelings may be fleeting, or not strong enough to warrant a relationship. Coeosexual individuals are prone to intense smushes on individuals they barely know, which can be as intense as an attraction an allosexual individuals would feel after developing a relationship over many years.

Similar terms include lithosexual and fraysexual.
