Biromatic Asexuals are attracted to both men and women. They will date either gender, and they may or may not have intercourse to please their partner. They are often grouped with Parnromantic Asexuals because some people have difficulty distinguishing between the two meanings. (The author counts herself among the clueless). Panromantic often means being attracted to someone without considering the individual's gender.
A Biromatic Asexual will not find it any easier to find a partner than any other romantic Asexual, they will just have a slightly larger pool to choose from. A person who identifies as Biromantic still needs to find a partner who is willing to compromise or who shares the Asexual partner's desire not to engage in sexual relations.
Also, see the sidebar of http://stfubinarists.tumblr.com/ for an explanation of binarism, which is the practice of asserting that there are only two genders or that there should only be two genders.
