Only if you has made outstanding contribution to China or are a specialist needed by the country, it is possible for you to get the permanent residence permit by providing a recommendation letter or other certificates from a Chinese government department. However, I think the term "oustanding" is hard to define, so it cannot be guranteed that you will surely get it.

As your girlfriend is a Chinese citizen and you have lived in China for five years, it will be easier for you to get the permanent resident permit by getting married with her.
