My last dog was aggressive to most other dogs but he had a few dog buddies that he really loved. Introduce them in a neutral place and make sure they get along before you try anyone's apartment. Maybe stay at your gfs apt first a few times when her dog moves in so your dog gets used to the dogs smell.
My last dog was very possessive and jealous. The only time he ever hurt a dog was when I petted it in front of him. Don't be affectionate to the other dog, no treats, toys, food, water bowls, bones, nothing to fight over or own. Keep them separate by rooms or baby gates eventually try leashes. But remember dogs often feel more vulnerable and are more aggressive tied on leashes because they can't escape. Lots of praise for your dog tolerating and being nice to the other dog.
Worst case scenario, stay at her place and leave your dog at home or keep your dog locked up since he's the aggressive one and let her bring her dog. Or hire a trainer. But do everything slowly in small steps.
