I understand that 'Freund' can mean either '[male] friend' or 'boyfriend' and likewise 'Freundin' can mean '[female] friend' or 'girlfriend', and likewise. How do I distinguish between the two meanings? It's potentially a very embarrassing mistake to make...

If you want to say "my friend", you can say "ein Freund/eine Freundin von mir". If you want to say "my girlfriend", you can say "meine Freundin/mein Freund".
That's the difference. Using an indeterminative article, there are no doubts about the relationship between you and that person.
