The G

What does The G mean?


"The G" is another way to say girlfriend. It includes a capitalized "G," which is obviously the first letter in "girlfriend" but also emphasizes the significance of girlfriend status.

The reality show Love Island popularized The G as a way for contestants to refer to people's relationships as they progressed to a more committed state. Outside of the show, you will probably see the term on social media, or you might hear it in person when ladies are spilling the tea about others' romances. For example, your BFF might text you, "It's official, I'm the G!"
