What is biromanticism and why is it different from bisexuality
It is possible to be sexually attracted to someone without, however, having any romantic feelings for that person. Or even vice versa: to have feelings for someone to whom, however, we are not physically attracted.
This is because sexual orientation and romantic orientation are not the same thing and should not be treated as such.
Romantic orientation focuses less on the aspect of physical and sexual attraction, but more on the emotions involved and to whom those emotions are directed.
Thus, just as a person can be heterosexual or bisexual, for example, a person can be heteroromantic or biromantic.

What is biromanticism
To fully understand biromanticism, we must be clear that sexual desire and romantic love are not the same thing.
Biromantic is the term people use when they are romantically interested in more than one gender.
If you only want to have sex with people of your own gender, but you are open to loving people of more than one gender, then you might try biromanticism.
To be biromantic, you don’t have to be heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or pansexual; because physical attraction has nothing to do with biromanticism.

Understanding the difference between biromanticism and bisexuality
Although the prefix bi means two, it does not mean that a biromantic person is only attracted to two sexes.
Someone who is biromantic may be attracted to two or more genders, which means that the person of interest may identify as trans, a-gender, or any other gender identity.
How to tell if you are biromantic
People who identify as biromantic experience a different kind of physical, romantic, and emotional attraction to different genders.
There is no universal way to be biromantic. For example, a biromantic person may have feelings for men and women, but not for trans people or nonbinary people. Or the opposite: biromantic people can also have romantic feelings for all nonbinary identities, but not for men or women.
In general, however, there are a few parameters for whether one is biromantic:
You enjoy nonsexual contact (such as cuddling) with romantic partners of different genders
You are able to imagine a future with romantic partners of both genders
You enjoy making romantic gestures for people who identify with different gender identities.

How does biromanticism work in relationships
A person who is biromantic can be in a relationship with someone of either gender to whom they are romantically attracted. The relationships of a person who is biromantic are usually no different from a traditional relationship (a relationship between two cisgender, heterosexual people of opposite sexes).
It may happen that if an individual is biromantic, he or she is also polyamorous; meaning that he or she may be in a relationship with more than one person at a time. Such relationships may be romantic or sexual in nature (or both).
Polyamory is a form of consensual non-monogamy that emphasizes emotional and sexual intimacy with multiple partners at once, ideally with the knowledge of all parties involved.
