Is there a word for all “sexual and/or romantic love”? “Love” doesn’t work because it can also mean love for family members or friends. I’m talking someone equivalent to a spouse or date partner, though not everyone gets married or goes on dates. “Attraction” kinda sort of works but I feel like it beats around the bush- you could be attracted to someone because they’re charismatic but not love them.

Got anything better? Maybe something from another language English could adopt?

The thumbnail doesn’t do this justice, this is an amazing digital painting by Viking011. It took over 2 years, has EVERY villager/NPC & is filled with flowers, bugs & collectables. The detail when you zoom in on the picture is amazing - go find your favorite villager!
