Asexual: A person who does not experience sexual attraction (“ace” for short). Aromantic: A person who does not experience romantic attraction (“aro” for short).

Note: A person who is asexual is not necessarily also aromantic, and vice versa. Demisexual: A person who only experiences sexual attraction after forming a strong emotional bond with someone.
