A person you are seeing, dating, or perhaps even sleeping with, but isn't technically considered your girlfriend. Somewhere between a casual date and an actual girlfriend.
Sorry, guys. I'm hanging out with the lady friend tonight.

A lady who is indeed more than just a friend. The relationship has not moved far enough to for her to be a girlfriend, therefore "Lady Friend" fills the void that currently remains between friendship, and relationship status.
Phil: "Hey Dennis, so whats going on with you and Megan?"

Created in October of 2004 by an individual named Rafiki of Oregon. When a man, more notably a guy, is going out with a woman but is unwilling to give the relationship a name (e.g girlfriend), the woman is described as a lady friend.
A lady friend provides all of the satisfaction of a girlfriend without any of the commitments.

Essentially synonymous with girlfriend. Used because its not age specific, sounds slightly classier.
"So, how's your ladyfriend been doing, Frank?"

Commonly used term by men fearful of commitment to refer to the woman that they have been dating. This term is usually used to indicate that while he has no intention of being involved in a committed relationship with said woman she is off limits to all other men.
WARNING: If you are referred to as a said "lady friend", do not ever make the mistake of referring to yourself as "girlfriend" or hooking up with another guy in front of the man that considers you his "lady friend" as you will no longer be referred to as "lady friend", but instead as "slut", "hoe", "skank", etc.
No, she's not my girlfriend. She's just my lady friend.
