Because if we don't, there are guys who take that as: "I'm not your boyfriend, so, I don't have to be loyal to you." I always expect a guy to be upfront about what we are, because I'm not here to be casual. If he wants to be casual - okay, but he's not going to be doing it with me.
A big turn off for me as well is indecisiveness, so if a guy can't decide if he wants me to be his girlfriend or a casual buddy, I want to steer clear of him. Therefore, I always make it clear upfront that I don't go titleless or deal with "maybes." Back when I was younger, sure, but as an adult woman: no thank you.2

Our mind automatically attempts to categorize and file through information provided to it, regardless of whether you are aware of it or not. It is, in some ways, obsessed with order.
When you assign a label to someone, you are instantly categorizing that person's characteristics and traits and attempting to group them with others with similar traits. We are, in a sense, making patterns out of randomness.
Society gives us a pre-defined definition and a sort of vague idea of what most labels represent.
You call someone your friend or girl that you know and people may think anything. If you call them your girlfriend, it gives people something to call you.
