"女友"的其他表达办法

时间:2022-1-3 作者:学而思英语网

女朋友指浪漫或性关系(romantic/sexual relationship)中相对稳定(regular)的女人伙伴,但一般不是长期承诺性的关系(long-term committed relationship),这样的情况需要用老婆(wife)或爱侣(partner)的说法。

1. Girlfriend也可以简称girl特别随意的场所可以用gf或GF,如短信(texting)或网聊(internet chat)。

eg: Have you been seeing a guy pretty steadily and would like to know if he wants you to be his girlfriend?

2. 非婚关系中,口语一般可称女方为significant other或SO这个词不突出性别,只强调亲密关系,所以也可用于男方。类似汉语的‘另一半儿’、‘那口子’、‘他那位’等,但不透露或假设婚姻状况或性取向,用于故意模糊以防止冒犯其他人。

eg: Anyone NOT having their Significant Other in the Delivery Room?

3. Life partner一般等于‘终身伴侣’

但与汉语不一样的是它也可以指亲密的终身伙伴,无论同性还是异性。Partner也可以指life partner。

eg: I feel more optimistic being in this relationship. We decided we are going to be life partners.

4. Soulmate或soul mate可以指女朋友或老婆也可以指未必有亲密关系的精神伴侣,有肯定的神秘或宗教意味。另外,mate也可以指女朋友。这几个词不区别性别。

eg: So did "God" give attractive people a much higher chance of meeting their soulmate?

5. Fiancée指订婚女朋友相对定义是fiancé,及订婚男朋友。

eg: A 45-year-old man and his fiancée were celebrating a family holiday in their apartment. Out of the blue the man thought that his girlfriend was taking the form of a hideous monster from a horror movie.

6. 有一些词是男女通用的,如true love、date、steady、darling、love、lover、paramour、squeeze等。

7. 还有其它一些词可以指女朋友,如companion、sweetheart、heartthrob、babe等。

8. 若是已婚男性的情人,一般用mistresseg: Picasso’s painting of his mistress will go under the hammer at London.

9. Lady friend是个故意模棱两可的用语指关系不到girlfriend的程度,但却好于friend;没mistress或lover那种明显的性意味。一般作为委婉语(euphemism)用,或者在状况不明的状况下作为一种守旧的提法。Lady friend也用于指女方明显大于男方的情侣关系。

eg: A millionaire took his lady friend to dinner. He told her he had eaten in the finest restaurants in the world and assured her this place served the best.

10. girl friend或female friend没浪漫关系(non-romantic)或性关系的(non-sexual)女人朋友可用girl friend或female friend一词。Girl friend和girlfriend也有所不同,前者可用于指通常女人朋友。

eg: The fine line between girl friends and girlfriends lies in sexual attraction and flirting.
