  • LOL my precious DH refers to me often as "my girl" when he's talking to his friends. I've always taken it to me that "I am his and he is mine". It seems as a term of endearment to me.

  • Where we live it could mean either its their girlfriend or their good friend. Depends on the context. I don't understand it but yea it could mean either. I prefer to say 'my friend' or 'my husband'. But the guys here will say for a male friend 'thats my dawg' or 'bro' and the girls use 'my girl'... Now I've gone and confused myself... ahhh!!!!

  • My husband calls me and his daughter his "girls" together; but he would call me "my girl" and his daugher "my daughter" if we were separate.

    I like "my girl" I would just take it as a term of endearment. If you are wondering if you are his girlfriend you should just ask him. But introducing someone as a "girlfriend" can sound cold and awkward in some crowds, where my "girl" sounds light and natural.
