Well, Lindsay’s “M.O.” is to get her hooks into powerful, married men. Look. She’s a heat-seeking missile. And Eddie has no heat. Your friend, Alex, does.

FYI, Lindsay is a gold digger.

I googled 'heart-seeking missele' and it says it's a slang that describes male's genitals. But I don't think that's not what the speaker wanted to say.

Is there another meaning of 'heart-seeking missele'? Like a gold digger? Or it's just figure of speech?

(My native language is not English. Please be kind to me. :-))

    It means she goes straight for married men like a heat-seeking missile would target the heat of an aircraft. – David M Oct 9 '19 at 4:23

    @Lily In figurative terms, the entire passage is saying that Lindsay only goes after men who have passion. (Passion is considered to be hot.) No doubt, if she's really after money (it doesn't actually say that, but your supposition could be correct), then those men who are dispassionate won't be taken in by her act. As opposed to men who are passionate and let their emotions take over. (At least that's what the passage is saying.) – Jason Bassford Oct 9 '19 at 8:21

Your looking at the "Urban Dictionary" and those are not official definitions at all. Those definitions are created by random people trying to be funny. Heat seeking missile is just what it says. Its a missile used in war, not male genetalia. By the way, im assuming you were trying to google "heat seeking missile" not "heart seeking missile". There is no such thing as heart seeking missile.
