Something that doesn't get much mention in the Asexual community is sapioromanticism. Which is a shame really, because when romantic orientation is mentioned in the Ace community, it's either aromanticism, biromanticism, heteroromanticism, homoromanticism or panromanticism. As such, Aces may define their romantic orientation as one of the aforementioned ones, when none of those really fit. Or, at least, none on their own.
You see, sapioromantics are attracted to intelligence, first and foremost, some also have a love of grammar. Sapioromantics may have a preference for the same sex, the opposite sex, both or neither/disregard gender completely. As such, they may hypenate their romantic orientation to say, homo-sapioromantic or bi-sapioromantic.
