What Does XGF Mean?

The abbreviation XGF means "Ex-Girlfriend ." It is used to refer to any female with whom there was previously a romantic relationship.

XGF doesn't actually say anything about the current status of the relationship (i.e., an XGF may now be a good friend, a sworn enemy or (as in the famous words of Gotye), just "Somebody That I Used To Know!". For example:
  • Les: How come you're posting so many photos of you and your dog on Instagram lately? Where's Sarah?
  • Lee: You mean my XGF Sarah? I have no idea where she is, who she's with or what she's doing. She blocked me.
XGF is an extension of the abbreviation GF ("Girlfriend").

If your ex is male you will need XBF ("Ex-Boyfriend").
