    Autoromantic is a term describing one experiences romantic attraction, exclusive or not, towards oneself. It can occur in multiple forms as follows:

    1. Having a difficult time with romance coded actions with other people, but fine when carrying them out in fantasies with yourself.
    2. Feeling little or no attraction to others romantically but feeling attraction to yourself.
    3. Fantasizing about a romantic relationship with yourself.
    4. Feeling attraction to yourself more than what is considered "normal."

    It can be a form of aromanticism when exclusive or paired with other arospec identities. The sexual counterpart to autoromantic is autosexual.

    History

    The term autoromantic is first found in 1971, however back then it was simply used as a playful term for a car enthusiast. The term appears again on an internet Usenet group in 2003, that time as a bit of poetic wordplay. The definition it has now notably appears on a forum on the Asexuality Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) in 2007.

    Flag

    The first flags were coined by Pride-Flags on Deviantart on January 20, 2017.

    The alternate flags were coined by Tumblr use p-e-a-r on October 28, 2021. The colours are a mix of the original flags and the aromantic flag.

    The last two alternate flags were made by Tumblr user felix-makes-flags on December 19th, 2021[1]
