Unit Aro is an umbrella term for an aro identity experienced as a single unit. For example, a person on the aromantic spectrum might identify as a unit aro if...
- They identify as aro, and they do not identify with any other orientation type (such as sexual orientation)
- They identify as aro most, and so "aro" stands for their experiences best
- They prefer "aro" over other parts of their identity
