(am-no-liht) abstaining from romantic partnerships. Like with celibacy, which is abstaining from sexual relations, there are a number of reasons a person may choose to be amnolite. These reasons may be simply wanting to take a break from romance for whatever reason, no desire pursuing a romantic relationship with their crush to begin with or are aromantic*.
The period of time being amnolite is amnolitacy.

Person B: Sorry, I'm amnolite.
Person A: Oh....kay =/
