    How can I let her use my MBP without her being able to view all my files, apps and so on?

    If I create a new profile for her, all my stuff is secure and not able to be viewed be her? If not, how will I make her profile appear to be like a brand new OS X installation?

    If you create a user account for her, it will be entirely separate from yours. If you fear she might muck things up, you can make it a non-admin account, meaning she'll have limited rights on the machine with regards to installing software, et cetera.

    If it is incidental use, you could allow for guest access, the guest account is completely reset to default state with every logout, so your storage will be spared, too.

    That said: she's your girlfriend! What have you got to hide, huh?!
