Frayromantic (also known as ignotasromantic) is a romantic orientation on the aromantic spectrum. It is defined as when someone only experiences romantic attraction towards those that they are not deeply connected with, and lose that attraction as they get to know the person. Frayromantic is often described as being 'the opposite of demiromantic'.
Frayromantic can be a romantic orientation on its own or can combined with other orientations. For example, one could be frayromantic and homoromantic, meaning that when one does experience romantic attraction it's only towards people of the same gender.
The sexual counterpart to frayromantic is fraysexual.
Flag Meaning[edit | edit source]
Blue and cyan are meant to represent strangers or acquaintances, with blue as the complementary color to red and yellow, which symbolize romantic and platonic love. The white stripe represents a lack of attraction, and the grey stripe represents confusion about romantic attraction.
The five stripe redesign was created on October 18, 2020 by an anonymous wiki user. The flag was created since beforehand, the fraysexual and frayromantic flags were the same. The flag was flipped upside down, given an additional grey stripe, and the shades of blue were tinted slightly green to represent the aromantic spectrum.
Etymology [edit | edit source]
The prefix fray- comes from the Olde English word for stranger.
