Ende is an orientation prefix that describes an individual's attraction to another that fades over time, the old English word 'ende-' meaning 'end'.[1][2]

The duration of the attraction can be short, long, or varied. Ende is unlike typical attraction fluidity as the attraction does not return. The prefix 'ende-' can accompany other alignments, such as Endebisexual (ende-bi-sexual). This does not mean the individual stops being bisexual after time, only that the attraction to a specific individual expires.[2]
