An emotiate is a person who you don't know well yet there is still some sort of emotional connection between you. This person is not so far removed from you so is in the box between friend and associate.
"I was on the phone to Malik the other day, and he asked me if you were friends with his brother, too. I know your not-so I just told him you were emotiates."
