    a family, parents, a (female) friend/a girlfriend

    A "gezin" is a family of mother, father (and children).
    A "familie" is including grandparents, uncles, aunt, nephews, nieces, etc.

    Vriendin is both "péng you" as "nǚ péng you".
    So "dit is mijn vriendin", could be:
    - This is my (female) friend.
    - This is my girlfriend.

    Dutch is not clear with that.
    To indicate that she is a friend and not a girlfriend you can say:
    "zij is een vriendin van mij".
