Proculalterous

Description

Procul- "Procul’ is Latin for ‘far away’ or ‘from a distance,’ and describes someone who has attraction/feelings only for people they're sure they can never be in a relationship with, like fictional characters, celebrities, etc.

{Note: many aromantic people fantasize about relationships with celebrities, fictional characters, etc. This term is more about people who feel very strong romantic love/attraction towards these people for an extended period of time, rather than just daydreaming about, if that makes sense}

Alterous attraction is described as neither being (entirely/completely) platonic nor romantic, & is an attraction best described as wanting emotional closeness without necessarily being (at all or entirely) platonic &/or romantic, & is used in the place of -romantic or -platonic (so say bi-alterous instead of bi-romantic). Someone can be both alterous & romantic &/or platonic & can have varying degrees on attraction, ultimately feel discomfort / unease / or just a sense of inaccuracy in calling it wholly romantic or platonic. Similar to queerplatonic/quasiplatonic/quirkyplatonic attraction but not quite the same.

Does being procul mean you can ONLY be attracted to people you can never be in a relationship with, or can you be attracted to people you can be with and people can you never be with?
