    The idemromantic flag.

    Idemromantic is a romantic orientation on the aromantic spectrum. It is a subcategory of quoiromantic and is closely related to platoniromantic. It is described as experiencing no notable internal differences between platonic and romantic feelings, often categorizing relationships and feelings as platonic or romantic based on external factors. An idemromantic individual may categorize certain relationships as romantic instead of platonic based on age, emotional closeness, presence of sexual attraction, or other factors. But their feelings toward their romantic interests would not be distinguishable from platonic feelings and may be similar to how they feel for a best friend.

    Idemromantic can be an orientation on its own or be combined with other orientations. For example, one could be idemromantic and biromantic, meaning that when one does experience attraction it's only towards two or more genders of one's choice.

    Idemromantic individuals can be allosexual or asexual, identifying with any sexual orientation or acespec microlabel.
