Has GTA IV influenced you to commit crimes?

Nope, it's just a game.
Only petty crimes.
Stealing has become a hobby.
Yes, can't say more, cops are coming.
I am the living incarnation of Niko.

Relationships

Everybody needs a friend!

Friends and girlfriends become available as you progress through the storyline. There are five friends and five girlfriends in total, and each character has a unique set of preferences. Each friend (and three of the girlfriends) provide special unlockable abilities in return for maintaining good relationships with them.

Friend Profiles

There are five friends in total, which become available at different times during the storyline. Each friend offers a 'special ability' in return for maintaining a good friendship. In order to unlock a friend's special ability, you must have a high 'like stat' for that friend, and this stat is based on how regularly you hang out with your friend. Call your friend and perform activities with him on a regular basis to increase your 'like stat'. This stat (amongst other friend stats) can be accessed from the pause menu under the 'Stats' section.

Don't take your friend to an activity that he doesn't like or your 'like stat' will reduce. You can perform upto four activities on each outing in order to give your 'like stat' the highest possible boost. If your friend calls but you aren't able to hang out, respond positively and then call immediatley afterwards to cancel the activity. That way your 'like stat' isn't affected.

Girlfriend Profiles

There are five different girls which Niko can date, two of which are unlocked automatically during the storyline, and the rest of which are available via the in-game internet. Call one of the girls to arrange a date, then pick her up within 1 hour (2 real-time minutes) and take her to one of the activities shown on the map. Note that you cannot date a girl when you are on a mission. After a date, you need to wait 5 hours (10 real-time minutes) before calling your girlfriend again. Don't call her too frequently or her respect for you will drop.


Love-Meet Crap List
Carmen and Kiki are available on Love Meet (left) while Alex can be contacted via Crap List (right)

You can date as many girls as you like, but the more you take on the harder it becomes. It's best to wait until you have completed the main storyline before taking on the girls from the internet, since the more girlfriends you have, the more attention they require and the more often they will call. Dating multiple girls at once is a risk if one of those girls is Kiki Jenkins, because she starts to stalk you, and eventually dumps you if she catches you with another woman.

Dating & Preferences

Each girl has a unique set of preferences that you should adhere to in order to get the most out of a date. Each girl has an 'initial opinion' of each activity that is available, and each time you take her to a specific place her opinion of it drops by 5, while her opinion of all similar places drops by 1. For example, if you visit the Cluckin' Bell in Star Junction her opinion of it drops by 5, while her opinion of all other Cluckin' Bells in the city drops by 1. When her opinion of a specific place falls below 25, she refuses to go there anymore.


Girlfriend Activity Try your luck.
Take your girlfriend to an activity that she likes (left) and then afterwards try your luck (right)

In order to get the maximum success out of a date, therefore, you should refer to the initial opinions of all the activities listed in the table below, and try to vary the activities from date-to-date. A successful date increases your 'like stat', and afterwards the girl may invite you in for some "hot coffee". You should also consider the girl's likes and dislikes listed in the profiles above - adhering to these will further increase your 'like stat'.

Example: In order to get the most out of a first date with Carmen, pick her up in a Sultan RS, wear clothes from Modo, and take her to one of the places with the highest initial opinion in the table below (for example Comrades Bar on Hove Beach). Then on the second date, take her to another place with a high initial opinion, but make sure it's different to the first place you took her (so for example Club Liberty).
