Questions about Dating in Persona 4

#1 Edited by Venatio (4482 posts) -

Alright I just got "Intimate" with Yukiko, so that means she is now my girlfriend right?

And also, I got my social link with Chie up to Level 9 and it gave me the option to ask her to become my girlfriend, I said the other thing but will I get another chance to ask her? And also can I have multiple girlfriends? What happens if I do?

Yeah, in the context of the game, being "intimate" is the equivalent to having them be your girlfriend, so Yukiko is indeed that. If you choose to deny the opportunity like you did with Chie, however, you don't get a second chance; they just become close platonic friends at that point. You can also have multiple girlfriends if you opt to do so, although if you start going out with another girl while being romantically involved with another, there's a chance that you'll have your dates with the new girl get intercepted. It's an interestingly awkward spectacle to behold, to say the least.

Should I bother with reloading my old save and asking Chie to be my girlfriend? I mean, I liked Yukiko more anyway but I kinda wanna see what happens when you have multiple girlfriends? Is it worth it?

Every girl in the game was my girlfriend. Worth it? absolutely.

What are the consequences if you run into each other? Do they get pissed off and break up with you? Did you get any problems while playing?

Maybe my memory is a bit foggy, but I'm pretty sure you can only have one "official" girlfriend at a time and if you say you don't want to be their b/f when you max their SL, then you never get a second chance at being an item later in the game. I'm not 100% certain, but I believe that's how it worked in the game.

I didn't have any problems at all. Once Yukari saw Ai and I together, but I talked my way out of it.

I tried having more than one girlfriend, but Rise called "Cheaters" to spy on me. God, I hate Joey so much...

Why would you get with Yukiko? She's such a bitch.

As I can tell there 0 retribution for having multiple girlfriends, the close thins that you get are set event that pop up now end then, the only factor there is how strong is the social link. I did too have the Ai and Yukiko event on a Sunday. Since Yukiko had a full S.Link, she basically bitch slap Ai out of the way so she spend time with the main character. The big bonus that you get come at Chrismast eve, were one of the girl will call and ask if she can spend the night over at your place, you can guess what she really want. Again, it like a menu there to, you just cancel rende-vous until the girl what to get busy call. I subjest to go with Rise, since she give you a +50% SP itme.

I forgot about that Ai and Yukiko thing. Man, I was scared when she walks in on my date it Ai.

So bottom line here, should I have multiple girlfriends? And also if I want to ask Chie again to be my girlfriend I have to go back Six days in time to my previous save and lose about an hour in gameplay, worth it? Or should I just forget about that and try the other girls?

Man this is to much pressure, I gotta go play LBP or something xD

There is NO penalty for having multiple girlfriends. The only thing that really has any kind of negative affect is having to choose between them on certain events. There are only a couple times where one girl might get jealous (For example that Yukiko scene above) But nothing was lost. So feel free to have more than one girlfriend. And don't stress about one character only being your friend. To me, Chie would make a better boyfriend than a girlfriend, if you know what I mean. You also won't lose any pluses to stats if they aren't your girlfriend. You will still have max social link.

You have Persona 3 characters in your game? :P

Once Yukiko screwed up my Sunday with Ai, I regretted getting romantically involved with her. I should have waited till my second playthrough before taking any of the lover paths.

Does anybody know which Christmas scene you get when you have multiple girlfriends?

#17 Posted by Agent_Lost (899 posts) -

you get to pick which girlfriend you want to spend time with. If you refuse all the girls request then you spend time with Teddie and Yusuke.

So unless you want to end up on Christmas eve with a bunch of sausages, I'd say you better get into their pants whole you can!

Remember: Popularity leads to Intimacy.

I was just wondering about some stuff today :

1. Is it possible to still get S. Link level 10 if you choose not to be girlfriend with someone?  I haven't seen that character around since I refused girlfriendhood to her.
2. Is there any point in further dates after maxing the persona link?  Are there bonus scenes if you do that a lot?  Bonus skills?

1. Absolutely, they continue to rank up, you just get different cutscenes that are less intimate and more like "you're my best friend ever."  Read also: more boring

2. I took Chie out again after maxing the social link.  She went to my room again, and I spent a long while with her.  But in terms of stat boosts/tems/slinks, I got nothing.

Fuuuuuuuck. Just messed up getting Naoto as my girlfriend on my second playthrough. Which is partly the reason why I bothered with a second playthrough. :(
