Not to be confused with the compound word girlfriend, a "girl friend" (two words) is a girl who is your friend, but not a girlfriend.

Every guy should have a girl friend. A good girl friend is just like one of the guys, except a girl. Also, if you're going through shit with your girlfriend then it's nice to know you have a female on your side.

Girl friends don't have to be unattractive, either. But keep in mind that a girl friend shouldn't be confused with a romance interest you're trying to buddy-up first-- Girl friends remain strictly really good friends, even best friends.
My girlfriend dumped me because she thinks I lack the ability to be affectionate.

My girl friend Heather says that my (ex)girlfriend is just a stupid nympho and I'm perfectly date-able. Then we drank some beer and played Super Smash Bros.

Something I wish I had. Otherwise, I'll be surfing the internet forever playing kinda boring online games and masturbating to porno.
Person 1: Hey, I just got a girlfriend!
Person 2: Where did you find her? The Red Light District?
Person 1: What? Are you jealous?
Person 2: Fuck you! I can get one, I just don't want to...

Not you mother, sister, female cousin or female friend. A female that once you’ve officially established is your exclusive partner (i.e., intimate, peer, best friend), you want to kiss without her asking you. More importantly, when she asks for a kiss you give it up without question. And, even more notably, you are able to kiss without the expectation that you will get laid.

In conclusion, a girlfriend is a female that (particularly in the initial stages of the relationship) you want to make feel special and wanted (not rejected/unwanted) by showing her affection through the simple act of a passionate kiss.
Female: Baby, give me a kiss before you go.
Male: Leans over and kisses the girlfriend passionately then leaves (all without going for grabs or wanting to get lucky).

a female who you love, admire, respect, and desire to be with; a girl who makes you laugh, smile and realize what true happiness is; your perfect match; a girl who goes from best friend, to teammate, to partner in crime all in one day; a woman who brings out the best in you; your favorite lady.
I had the best weekend because i spent it with my girlfriend.

Usually, some poor excuse for a sex based relationship, though this is disguised in supposed 'love'. No, I'm not bitter, I can just observe that 95%+ of 'relationships' are total horseshit.
If you don't use your brain and understand your partner, don't expect any more (or to be any more) than your average 'girlfriend'.

The most amazing thing that can happen to a guy. She can make him feel strong enough to do anything. The one person that you should value over every other thing. You must protect her for she is the most special thing that could ever happen to you.
Guy:She's my girlfriend and if you touch her I'll kick your ass!!!!
Jackass: Fine I'll leave the whore alone.
The guy then jumps on the Jackass and beats the fuck out of him.
