Girlfriends in GTA San Andreas
ADVERTISEMENT

During the course of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, there are six possible girlfriends for Carl, with two of them, Denise Robinson and Millie Perkins, becoming girlfriends through the storyline. Dating any of the six girlfriends is not required for 100% Completion with the exception of Millie Perkins who can be killed on the first date to obtain a keycard for the ultimate heist mission, Breaking the Bank at Caligula's.

Denise is first encountered during the mission Burning Desire for Frank Tenpenny, whilst Millie first appears during the mission Key To Her Heart in Las Venturas. The remaining four girlfriends are Michelle Cannes, Barbara Schternvart, Helena Wankstein, and Katie Zhan.

DeniseRobinson-GTASA.jpg Denise Robinson Denise is encountered during the mission Burning Desire and she lives a block away from Carl in Ganton, Los Santos. She is always available for Carl to hang out with, irrespective of his appearance. On a given date, she does not mind the player's wanted level, and loves to occasionally do drive-bys.

Denise is the easiest girlfriend to date in the game, and she rewards Carl with her Hustler at half-mark progress, while gifting him a pimp suit upon attaining 100% progress.

MilliePerkins-GTASA.jpg Millie Perkins Millie is encountered during the mission Key to Her Heart and she lives in the Prickle Pine district of Las Venturas. She likes a physically fit appearance for a date. On a given one, she, like all other girlfriends, with the exception of Denise, abandons the date if the player has a wanted level of more than two stars.

Millie is the most "unproductive" girlfriend in the game, as all of the potential rewards she could provide, with the exception of keys to her car, a pink Club, can still be attained by killing her otherwise, including the card for the casino heist, success in which would also automatically reward the player with the croupier uniform she wears. Even the pink Club she owns can be otherwise obtained by stealing one of another colour and spraying it at any of the many spray shops.

She too likes a physically fit appearance for a date. On a given one, she, like all other girlfriends, with the exception of Denise, abandons the date if the player has a wanted level of more than two stars.

Unlike other girlfriends, Helena does not place any restrictions on Carl using the vehicles at her farm, which are always open after Flint County is unlocked. She rewards Carl with weapons in a tin shed at the farm when they are dating and gifts him a set of rural clothes upon attaining 100% progress.

KatieZhan-GTASA.jpg Katie Zhan Katie can first be found on the golf course near the San Fierro Gym and she lives in Paradiso, San Fierro. She also likes a physically fit appearance for a date. On a given one, she, like all other girlfriends, with the exception of Denise, abandons the date if the player has a wanted level of more than two stars.

Katie is one of the two most productive girlfriends in the game, rewarding Carl with a special ability to retain weapons upon dying and being discharged from a hospital while dating her. She also rewards Carl with her white Romero, one of the rare few cars, at half-mark progress, and gifts him a medic uniform upon attaining 100% progress.

She as well likes a physically fit appearance for a date. On a given one, she, like all other girlfriends, with the exception of Denise, abandons the date if the player has a wanted level of more than two stars.

Michelle is a reasonably productive girlfriend in the game, rewarding Carl with a free-to-repair garage facility which works like the Pay 'n' Spray. She also rewards Carl with her customized Monster at half-mark progress, and gifts him a racer's tracksuit upon attaining 100% progress.

She, in contrast, likes an obese appearance for a date. On a given one, she, like all other girlfriends, with the exception of Denise, abandons the date if the player has a wanted level of more than two stars.

Barbara is one of the two most productive girlfriends in the game, rewarding Carl with a special ability to retain weapons upon being arrested and paroled while dating her. She also rewards Carl with her rural police Ranger at half-mark progress, and gifts him a police uniform upon attaining 100% progress. Wearing the uniform allows Carl to access police impound garages without any heat on him.

Tips & Glitches

Driving dates must be played by the rules, but for other date types, there are shortcuts:
  • Using a Maverick to take girlfriends out is helpful for some of the more secluded ones (Helena, Barbara), allowing you to complete a food or dance date before they get bored.
  • Driving a motorcycle on a date pretty much gives you a free pass to drive recklessly. Carl can hit other cars, solid objects, fall/fly off the bike with his girlfriend, etc. and none of this will upset them. This also helps you reach distant dates before the girl gets bored. However, any "stunt" driving will get a complaint.
(None of this is relevant for Katie, as she likes horrible driving).
  • Sometimes a girlfriend will be absent from their house for over 24 hours. If this happens, dying, getting arrested, or completing a mission seem to be the only ways to get them spawning for dates again.
  • If the player has collected all the oysters in the game, Carl's sex appeal will be at its maximum; thus, the girlfriends wouldn't really care how Carl would look, making all dates possible. However, the wanted level constraint still holds, and would result in progress getting negative.

Trivia

  • On rare occasions, while the player is dating a girlfriend, he can be spotted by another girlfriend.[1]
  • If the player has collected all the oysters in the game, Carl can find all of his girlfriends, except Denise and Millie, again in their usual place where they first met, even though Carl had killed them or abandoned them.
  • During Vigilante, girlfriend models are sometimes used as criminals.[2]
