Think it this way: -ο is not a feminine noun ending and Κοπέλα is a feminine noun=girl(friend)
Not an uncommon occurrence. A bit of time and context will help. Best of luck on all your studies.
My boyfriend is ο φίλος μου or το αγόρι μου, or the more slangy ο γκόμενός μου.
I was afraid of that...so then it is mostly context that determines the difference between "(male) friend" and "boyfriend" (unless one uses the slang term). Καταλαβαίνω, ευχαριστώ!
It's not only context. The only tricky one is φίλος (note that η φίλη μου is not used by men for a girlfriend). Το αγόρι μου/η κοπέλα μου/το κορίτσι μου always mean my boyfriend/girlfriend. But ο φίλος μου is my boyfriend. So, Ο Γιάννης είναι ο φίλος μου=Yiannis is my boyfriend, but Ο Γιάννης είναι φίλος μου=Yannis is my friend. Πήγα με τον φίλο μου μια βόλτα=(mostly) I went for a walk with my boyfriend, but in such sentences if the friend is specified for example Πήγα με τον φίλο μου τον Νίκο μια βόλτα=I went for a walk with my friend Nikos, unless you say Πήγα με τον φίλο μου, τον Νίκο, μια βόλτα=I went for a walk with my boyfriend, Nikos. I hope I helped and did not overwhelm you with too much info.... :)
Ah, not at all- I love the detailed explanation. Τώρα καταλαβαίνω καλύτερα. Ευχαριστώ πολύ! :)
In English we often omit the 'do' in the question do you have? This is both in spoken and written English
