Looking to get a girlfriend in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas? Here’s a full guide to CJ’s love life and the girls that inhabit it.

How to Get a Girlfriend in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
To get and keep a girlfriend in San Andreas, CJ must first meet the character and then choose to take them out.
At the beginning of a date, players will head to get food, go dancing, or simply drive around. Taking a woman to a place she likes will allow the date to go well.
Once the date is over, take CJ and his girlfriend back to their home within 5 minutes, and don’t get a Wanted level at any point.
If you’ve been able to raise the date’s affection enough at this point, CJ will be invited in for ‘coffee’.
To maintain and progress in your relationship, continue to date the girl any time you’re in the area or you’ll lose points with her. However, if you’re not nearby, the relationship will not degrade.
Finally, if a girlfriend is killed, they remain that way permanently. However, it is possible to bring them back by collecting all 50 Oysters in San Andreas, with the exception of Millie and Denise.
