Carmen Ortiz is a datable character in Grand Theft Auto IV, who uses the profile name SoBoHoe on Love-Meet.net. She is a nurse but often talks of her ambitions to be a television presenter. She lives in an apartment in Bohan, but seems unhappy there, as she will randomly ask Niko to buy her a place in Algonquin; however, Niko always refuses. Her profile on the LCPD Database also states that she is a nymphomaniac. Like every other internet-girlfriends, she can be dumped by Niko depending on the player's choice.
Carmen usually refers to herself in third person, e.g. 'She' and 'Carmen'. She also considers herself very attractive, and upon entering strip clubs will say, "My tit job is so much better than the ones these girls have got." She also sometimes has her nails and hair done. Carmen is possibly bisexual, as she enjoys going to strip clubs on dates, her sexuality on Lovemeet is put as "free spirit", and she can be seen dancing with Elizabeta Torres at a party during the Blow Your Cover mission. She claims to be in several different no-strings attached relationships with men as well as Niko, and says she will never settle down "like her mama."
Carmen is a very sexually forward character. On almost every date with Niko, she will make a reference to sex. Examples include when Niko takes her to play pool, she will comment "Lets see how good you are with your stick", this will alter depending on whether Niko wins or loses. If he takes her to eat at a diner, she will ask Niko "you ain't gonna try and get with me in the restroom are you?" Also, when Niko asks to sleep with her, she demands that he come inside. She also states that she has had breast implants.
Her personality is somewhat similar to Brucie Kibbutz, as she is very vain about her appearances and in fact states she loves looking good.
- GTA IV
Carmen likes expensive clothing from Modo or Perseus and likes Niko to wear different clothes on each date. Carmen is wilder than the other girlfriends as she enjoys it when Niko drives fast or gets a wanted level. Escaping from the cops is an ideal way to raise her fondness. She prefers to visit bars or strip clubs for early dates and restaurants for later dates. She likes expensive luxury/sports cars and coupes, with the exception of the Banshee. Carmen also enjoys motorcycles, saying "my friend drives a bike, too, Niko." She doesn't however, like the Faggio.

Note: Carmen will complain if Niko beats her at games, though this doesn't seem to have any impact on the success of a date.
Once Niko's relationship level gets high enough, Niko will gain the ability to call Carmen for medical advice and a quick health boost. This is bugged, causing it to not work properly from time to time.
