As a youth pastor, I often find myself counseling some troubled student about the drama that their bf/gf is causing in their life.I am always curious why they feel they HAVE to date and find it hard to determine the line that defines a gf/bf from a friend. Hey Im 16 now,and I havnt started dating yet, The true fact is,that theres not much of a difference, I think that when u start dating someone,you do the same things you do as friends,and once your in a relationship and notice that,thats when you start to think hey I need to take this farther,nothings changed since we've started dating,and thats when trouble starts, Thats why I tell kids,to think before they date,because everyone whos dated knows,that things progress when being in a relationship. The physical contact that one shares between a friend and a girlfriend is on a different level.

For young males, having a girlfriend is a sign of status and is considered a milestone in his growth towards adulthood.
To have a girlfriend does not necessarily lead to getting married nor does it have to be a sexual relationship.
What distinguishes a friend from a girlfriend is that with a girlfriend one has plans for the future which he expects to spend with her.
With friends, who can either be males or females, there are no such plans, and they are content with enjoying shared activities.
It is a close association with another person who has the best intentions for the other, showing sympathy as well as empathy through understanding and compassion and honesty in everything especially in things where others cannot tell the truth.
