Affectional orientation

The term affectional orientation is used by those who argue that one's orientation goes far beyond sexuality. To holders of this view, one's orientation is defined by who one is predisposed to fall in love with, sexual attraction being only a part of a larger dynamic.

Compare: sexual orientation.
