Top definition
A person who has an emotional and romantic attraction solely to and has romantic relationships solely with people of the opposite sex. This term does not imply a certain sexual orientation.

Note: This term is in contrast to the term heterosexual, which in its dictionary definition implies merely a sexual attraction to the opposite sex, with no regard to emotional attachment whatsoever. A person could, for example, be bisexual and sexually attracted to both sexes but heteroemotional and only emotionally attracted to the opposite sex, and thus will only date someone of the opposite sex.
Rob: Have you ever noticed how some girls want to mess around with other girls but would never date one?
Nick: Yeah, man, they might be bisexual, but they're heteroemotional.
