Orientationless is a term that refers to an individual lacking any type of orientation, combining orientation with the suffix '-less' to indicate an absence of orientation. This includes the lack of sexual, romantic, and all other tertiary orientations.

This may be used by those who do not identify as straight, gay, nor any other orientation. It can be used by those who feel as though they are either too young for an orientation, or too young to know their orientation. One may also feel like they don't fit any existing terms, or that their experiences of attraction are without pattern and thus unable to be defined by an orientation.

History

The term was coined by FANDOM user Animalcrossingfan-owo on October 16th, 2020 through the page on the LGBTA Wiki[1].
