I was wondering if the phrase "mit meinen Freunde" means with my friends, or with my boyfriends?
"Mit" governs the dative.
"mit meinem Freund" (m)
"mit meiner Freundin" (f)
"mit meinen Freunden" (plural)
Whether it's a friend or boyfriend depends on the context.
Most common are:
male speaker: "mit meinem Freund" (friend) - in case the man is gay it is also possible that it is a boyfriend
male speaker: "mit einer Freundin" (friend)
male speaker: "mit meiner Freundin" (girlfriend) - but it can also be a female friend, you have to ask for clarification if you're in doubt
For female speakers it's the opposite.
Separate names with a comma.
