Frayromantic flag

The fraysexual flag

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.

Frayromantic people still after losing their romantic attraction can have queerplatonic attraction or other form of attraction at a person, like alterous attraction.

The sexual counterpart to frayromantic is fraysexual.

Flag Meaning

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

The prefix fray- comes from the Olde English word for stranger.
