    Reciproflexible

    The reciproflexible flag
    Alternate reciproflexible flag by Tumblr user felix-makes-flags

    Reciproflexible is an a-spec identity where one normally is only attracted to someone once one knows they reciprocate that attraction, but occasionally can experience attraction to someone who one knows or assumes does not reciprocate that attraction. This can be for any form of attraction, such as (but not limited to) sexual attraction, romantic attraction and platonic attraction.

    The type of attraction can be combined with reciproflexible, so for example, one can be reciprosensualflexible. The gender(s) one is attracted to can also be combined in this identity - for example, if one is attracted to all genders but gender plays a role in attraction, one could be omnireciproflexible.

    History

    This term was coined by FANDOM user ThatAnnoyingDemigirl (now ChaoticAroace) on the 11th of July, 2021.

    Etymology

    The start of this term, recipro-, comes from the start of the word reciprocate, and the end of the term, -flexible, means that this orientation is flexible.

    Flags

    The flag was designed on the 11th of July 2021 by FANDOM user ThatAnnoyingDemigirl (now ChaoticAroace). The section in the middle of the flag is similar to the reciprosexual flag. The shades of grey at the sides of the flag symbolise the flexible nature of this identity.

    An alternate reciproflexible flag was created by Tumblr user felix-makes-flags on December 2nd, 2021.[1] It has no confirmed meaning, although the colors appear to be based on the original flag.
