It's just a matter of semantics: "heterosexual" would imply a sexual attraction to the opposite sex. While some asexuals don't experience attraction to any sex/gender, others can still be romantically attracted to a sex/gender while simply lacking sexual attraction.

In your case, you would be considered a heteroromantic asexual. You can be attracted to the opposite sex and find a meaningful and romantic but non-sexual relationship with them.

So technically, you can't be both heterosexual and asexual at the same time, but you can still be romantically and platonically attracted to any sex or gender without sexual attraction.

Yes. I am asexual and heterosexual. I had to learn to enjoy sex. It didn't come natural.
