Examples from the Web for gentleman friend
Every morning I awake to find half-a-dozen hens and their gentleman-friend roosting along my anatomy.
I've got a gentleman-friend, too, and he's awful nice to me.
Then I answered her question: "Well, that depends upon what you mean by gentleman-friend," I said.
Then I added, "but have you got a gentleman-friend yourself?"
As to your gentleman-friend, he may take himself off, wherever he likes best.Hard Times|Charles Dickens
