I no longer want to be anyone's girlfriend. The whole thing seems overrated, especially when I have the option of being a "not girlfriend." What is the difference between the two? A girlfriend is like a personal cheerleader: she should be in your corner, having your back, front and side at all times. A "not girlfriend" reserves the right to do this at will. As a "not girlfriend," you can root for or against your partner depending on your mood, and no one can say anything about it.
As a girlfriend you are obligated to be faithful. No man on the side for the girlfriend; she is spoken for. A "not girlfriend" can keep all the other friends she wants and feel free to add new ones as desired, male or female.
A girlfriend should not lie. After all, the basis of any relationship is trust. However, the "not girlfriend" has the option of using lies of omission or just flat out lying.
A girlfriend is burdened with someone's emotions and moods, and even has to take into account how her actions affect another persons feelings. A "not girlfriend" does not have to care. Her thoughtfulness is a privilege to receive, not a right.
Both get presents and keys to the house. Neither is guaranteed.
Based on the descriptions above, girls, would you rather be a girlfriend or a "not girlfriend?"
