When the presence of a girlfriend (either real of fictitious) is introduced by a male during a conversation with a female it is considered dropping a "girlfriend bomb." This is typically done to deter further or perceived pursuit of the male by the female. Either the guy finds the girl he's chatting with unattractive and fears she may be interested in him. Or he's intimidated by her. Thus, he needs to make her aware of "competition", that's he's desirable and taken or that he is *NOT* desperate.
It's basically saying "Hey look...someone likes me OTHER than you!"
(girl and guy casually chatting about nothing...)
Girl: yeah, so that's when i decided i wanted to see Iron Man.
Guy: *clears throat* um yea me and my girlfriend went to see that last night.
girl: wow...you dropped a girlfriend bomb..how lame.
