An acronym for Gay Best Friend. A homosexual man who is the best friend of a woman.

The GBF is a fashion accessory mainly found adorning city women having risen to popularity in the late 90's. GBF's are prized for having acute fashion sense and therefore suitable for shopping trips. Also known for better understanding the mysteries of female nature and therefore a good Agony Uncle and conversationalist.

GBF's are sometimes used as stand-in boyfriends at social/business/family gatherings when a woman has no real boyfriend.

Gay British Friend or Gay Best Friend is the male companion of a female whom the female could never see as a romantic lover/partner. The GBF and the female do everything together like would a couple, except he will never get laid and he will never get the girl.

The term GBF originated in Britain during the early 20th reflecting the social/cultural relationship between British men and British women. British women viewed British men as brothers or "sisters" but never as romantic partners. The desperate British man still wanted to be with her so he became her Gay Best Friend in order to be with her.
Woman: I'm so lonely I wish there was a man around here!

British man: What about me?

Woman: No your the GBF.

Woman: I want to go shopping and get my nails done but I have no one to go with..

British man: I'll go with you, i need to get a pedicure anyway.

Woman: What would I ever do with my Gay Best Friend!
