Hoi Alenika,


Thank you for sharing and yes that is true 😇 Nothing wrong about that , "mijn vriend" - boyfriend and "een vriend".

I read somewhere that if they say: "Dit is mijn vriend" - this means boyfriend. But if it is said: "Dit is een vriend van mij" - then it is just a friend. Or other way around O:) Is this true?

Hoi Kara,


Thank you for commenting and i agree that i can be a bit confusing.

A male friend in Dutch is "een vriend" and a female friend is "een vriendin". It depends on the context of the sentence...


If a Dutch girl says " dit is mijn vriend" than it means in most cases " boyfriend". If it's "just" a friend than she will say that he is not her boyfriend but just a male friend. Same goes for when the speaker is a boy, he will use "vriendin" meaning girlfriend but will also say vriendin" for just a female friend but will confirm to the other person that it's just a female friend.


You can wait for the other person's reaction 😁 If he or she is confused whether the person your with is a friend or a boyfriend/girlfriend than you can just explain it to him 😇

Hoi! I don't understand the difference between saying someone is a friend or a boyfriend, as they seem to be the same word ("vriend"). Obviously want to avoid a faux pas!


And "vriendin" is girlfriend, but then in the example under "friend", a "ware vriendin" is a "true friend" (not "true girlfriend"). Please help! Dank u.
