Q: What does that mousey-haired, in-between girlfriend of a year mean?
A: The speaker is describing the year 1973 as he would a girlfriend whom you date between relationships but who does not fit the type of exciting girls you used to date before her, or the exciting ones whom you dated after her.
A dull girl you date in between relationships, who does not resemble what came before her or what came after her.

So 1973 is a 70’s year, but it was before the full 70’s culture took off (disco), so it does not really fit with the later years of the 70’s. And since it was 3 years into the 70’s, the culture of the 60’s was already dying out, so it did not fit with the 60’s era.

It was just a dull, no frills year, that people just waited for to pass. Like a dull girlfriend you just hang out with between exciting relationships.

Like “2010 was a trophy of a year”, just the opposite.
Q: What does No girlfriend of mine is going to go without a shower when she's around me. mean?

Synonyms of "Girlfriend" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between She was my girlfriend. and She used to be my girlfriend. ?
A: They usually mean the same thing. She has been your girlfriend in the past, but she isn’t anymore. That could be because you broke up or it could be because she died or it could be because she is now your wife.

The only time I can think of when you could use one and not the other is if you were talking to someone about your current wife and the person asked you “What was your relationship with your wife ten years ago?” You could answer “she was my girlfriend.” But you couldn’t really answer “She used to be my girlfriend.” It would sound really weird in that context.
Q: What is the difference between #1 Would you be my girlfriend? and #2 Would you be my girl friend? ?
A: If you want to make it clearer, write girl-friend, or just say friend since she would understand it. Saying girlfriend or girl friend will have miscommunications between you two.
Q: What is the difference between Psycho-Bitch and Overly attached girlfriend ?
A: Hi, Psycho-Bitch is more extreme, like she is completely crazy. Whereas an overly attached girlfriend could mean she is just needy. Also Psycho-Bitch could refer to any crazy woman, not just a girlfriend.

Hope that helps ☺

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? — “Rumor has it that you’ve broken up with your girlfriend, haven’t you?” does that sound ok guys! thanks!
A: Yes, that’s correct. Both of the phrases ‘rumor has it’ and ‘haven’t you’ are correct individually, but it sounds very unnatural to use them in the same sentence / topic. You can use either one of the example sentences I gave in my previous answer, though.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Can I say 'girlfriend' when I talk about one friend of mine that is a girl? Can I use this if I am a man or just women can say that?
A: It depends on who you are speaking with. People of older generations still often use "girlfriend" to refer to their female friends. Of course that is if you are female. If you are male and say you have multiple "girlfriends" people will think you are promiscuous. If you are a male you can say " my friend." You don't have to specify unless you want to, or the person you are talking to asks.
