A girl-for-right-now-friend is defined by the Urban Dictionary as “A girlfriend that literally is for the “right now” benefit whether it be physical or other. It can also be a girlfriend because you are bored. This GF can also be a filler until you either get back with your ex-girlfriend or you end up with the girl you really want.”
It is a sad comment on our times that asking a guy if he has a girlfriend is not sufficient to get to the truth. Increasingly a girl needs to ask, “Is there a girl who thinks she’s your girlfriend?” Even then there is a chance that you won’t get the truth. If he fesses up, give him props for his honesty. While unpleasant it’s a good sign that he’s willing to tell you the truth. If you suspect that he’s merely feeding you a line, skip him – it’s not going to be worth the hassle of trying to figure out when he’s lying and when he’s honest. Btw, if he has to think about it, there’s your answer.
So while you want to avoid dating a guy who has a “filler”, you really want to avoid being that girl. (Note: friend-with-benefits is one thing – there is not expectation of a relationship, a filler girlfriend actually thinks she’s his girlfriend). Again, if he’s unwilling to put a label on your relationship and introduce you to his friend as such – you might want to consider your options. Like the saying goes, don’t make someone a priority in your life when you’re only an option in theirs.
