Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the most detailed open world games ever created. It has nearly everything - you can play a game of tennis, go to the theater... and even date a girlfriend. In this article, we are going to show you how to get a girlfriend in GTA 5 Story mode & Online mode.

In GTA: San Andreas and GTA IV, the player characters can actually go on dates with their girlfriends and maintain a relationship. GTA 5, on the other hand, does not have that option. Players only get "booty calls" occasionally. Overall, they are just a side activity that does not really play a big role in the overall game.

Getting a girlfriend in GTA 5 is not that important story wise.

1. How to get a girlfriend in GTA 5 story mode via strip clubs

To get a girlfriend in GTA 5 Story mode, you will need to seduce a stripper. The process involves quite a few steps and a large amount of repetition, mainly involving paying your chosen girl for private dances and flirting to increase her "like" level. Below is a step by step guide on how to get a girlfriend in GTA 5:

Step 1: Visit GTA 5 strip club

Firstly, you need to get to the Vanilla Unicorn strip club. It is in the middle of Los Santos city center... and is the only accessible strip club in the game. Trevor will own it by the end of the game, so you can spawn at the location pretty easily.

Step 2: Pay for private dance

Afterward, players need to pay $40 (pocket cash only) to receive a topless dance in private from one of the club's dancers. They usually will approach you on the dance floor and ask if you want to "get somewhere private".

Step 3: Flirt to increase Like meter

Once the dance starts, players need to flirt with the girl to increase the Like meter at the bottom of the screen. This is a minigame - you need to get the meter as high as possible while avoiding the bouncers, who walk back and forth nearby.

After getting caught three times, the bouncers would kick you out of the club. After Trevor acquires the Vanilla Unicorn, he, Michael and Franklin can touch the strippers without the risk of being ejected.

Step 4: Follow the command and finish

Once the Like meter is filled up, you would be able to take your dance partner outside and get to her place. Follow the commands on the screen and after she got in the car, follow the plotted route. Afterward, you will get a "hot coffee" cutscene that details your experience with the girl.

Your character will wake up with a new phone contact that can be used to call up your new girlfriend again. At night, the player can call and "take her home" again, but if called during the day she will make an excuse.

2. How to get a girlfriend in GTA 5 via missions

Outside of the strippers working in the clubs, players can also unlock 2 special girlfriends from side quests: Elisa Macallen and Ursula. They are attainable through the Private Fares mission and the Random Encounters respectively. Franklin can date both while Trevor can only date Ursula. Michael can't date these two characters.

Outside of the above, it is possible to get girlfriends by installing various GTA 5 NSFW mods.

How to date Elisa Macallen

After Franklin purchases the Downtown Cab Co, he would be able to do Private Fares missions... and one of them is a request from Alonzo. Players would be able to get Elisa's number for a booty call after the completion of that request. It is possible to call her while 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 in El Gordo Drive. Afterward, she would become a possible booty call.

3. How to get a girlfriend in GTA 5 Online

In general, the process of getting a girlfriend in GTA Online is nearly the same as its story mode version. The strip club is unlocked after reaching Rank 6 and the player can visit it anytime they want after receiving a text message. However, there are a couple of small differences:

  • There are no bouncers in the area.
  • Players need to raise a Like bar by either tossing dollar bills during the stripper's pole dance, holding the stripper during lap dances, or flirting using the microphone.
  • The Like meter resets with every session so players need to max it out in a single session without quitting.

Players will get the girl's number once the Like bar is filled. Afterward, they can call her to their apartment (the more high-end it is, the better) to perform free lap dances.

How to get a girlfriend pregnant in GTA 5?

Not possible. There are no mods for this, and children are absent from the game as a whole.

How to get a girlfriend and marry?

How to get Michael a girlfriend on GTA 5?
