    when you want to refer a friend you use חבר חברה or ידיד ידידיה to clarify youre not gf/bf
    using החבר החברה without proper context gives that you talk about gf/bf.

    another clarification - with proper context you can use החבר החברה as a friend, but a thumb rule is to make sure people know who you are talking about.

    btw, if a guy says החבר people wont think of it straight (how fit) away as a bf, same goes for a gal החברה.

    also, saying החבר שלי is mostly bf and not simply friend.
