Fictoromantic, also known as fictiromantic or fictionalromantic, is an umbrella term for anyone who experiences exclusive romantic attraction toward fictional characters, a general type of fictional characters, or whose romantic orientation is influenced by fictional characters.
Some fictoromantic individuals experience attraction to certain genders in fiction, but don't experience attraction to said genders in the non-fictional world. For example, one may experience attraction to all genders in fiction, but only experience attraction to women in the non-fictional world.
It is also sometimes an aro-spec identity, as some aro-spec individuals may feel romantic attraction exclusively to individuals whom they could never possibly be in a relationship with, such as fictional characters. The sexual equivalent is fictosexual.
