Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the most detailed open-world games ever created. It offers nearly everything, from playing tennis to going to the movies and even dating girlfriends. In this article, let’s explore how to date in both the story mode and online mode of GTA 5.
In GTA San Andreas, players’ characters could truly date their girlfriends and maintain long-term relationships. You can refer to how to date girlfriends in GTA San Andreas using cheat codes. On the other hand, GTA 5 doesn’t have that option. In general, dating activities in GTA 5 are more of a side feature and don’t play a significant role in the overall gameplay.
To get a girlfriend in GTA 5’s story mode, players will need to seduce a stripper. This process involves several steps and repetitions. The main tasks include spending money on the chosen girl for private dances and flirting to increase her “like” meter. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to find a girlfriend in GTA 5.
💃Step 1: Visit the Strip Club in GTA 5
First, players need to visit the Vanilla Unicorn strip club located in the center of Los Santos. This is the only strip club accessible in the game. Trevor will own it by the end of the game, so players can easily find this location.
💃Step 2: Pay for a Private Dance
Next, players need to pay $40 (in cash) for one of the strippers to perform a private dance for the character. Strippers usually approach the character on the dance floor and ask if they want to go somewhere private.
💃Step 3: Flirt to Build Affection
Once the dance begins, players need to flirt with the girl to increase the affection meter displayed at the bottom of the screen. This involves a minigame and requires reaching the highest possible score while avoiding bouncers nearby.
After being caught three times, the club’s security will kick the character out. After Trevor gains control of the Vanilla Unicorn, he, Michael, and Franklin can interact with the strippers without the risk of being ejected.
💃Step 4: Follow Instructions and Conclude
Once the affection meter is filled, players can take their dancer outside and go to her location. Follow the on-screen prompts and the route after the girl gets into the car. You can follow the same steps if you get caught three times.
The character will wake up with a new phone number that can be used to call back the new girlfriend. Players can call her at night and take her home, but if called during the day, she will make excuses.
How to Get a Girlfriend in GTA 5 Through Missions
Apart from strippers working in clubs, players can also unlock two special girlfriends through side missions: Elisa Macallen and Ursula. These two girlfriends can be obtained through the Private Fares and Random Encounters missions. Franklin can date both of them, while Trevor can only date Ursula. Michael cannot date either of these characters.
In addition to the above methods, players can also get girlfriends by installing various GTA 5 mods.
How to Date Elisa Macallen
After Franklin purchases Downtown Cab Co, he will be able to take on Private Fares missions, one of which comes from Alonzo. Players can receive Elisa’s number after completing that request. Anyone can call her when playing as Trevor or Franklin.
How to Date Ursula
Ursula can be found along North Calafia Way, south of Mount Chiliad. Once found, players can take her back to her house on El Gordo Drive.
How to Get a Girlfriend in GTA 5 Online
In general, the process of getting a girlfriend in GTA Online is similar to the story mode. The nightclub becomes accessible after reaching Rank 6, and players can visit it anytime after receiving a text message. However, there are some minor differences:
- There are no bouncers in the area.
- Players need to increase their affection meter by making it rain with dollar bills while the dancer is performing or by flirting using the microphone.
- The affection meter resets after each session, so players need to maximize it in one go without stopping.
- Players will receive the girl’s number once the affection meter is filled. Afterward, characters can call her to their (preferably high-end) apartment for a free lap dance.
