There are ways for a date to either turn out right or wrong.
If Carl takes a girlfriend to a restaurant they like, romantic music will play and it will show the two having a good time with each other.
Getting in a vehicle and then driving far away as well as jumping off a high cliff to a body of water (which means Carl will live despite jumping without a parachute) will be considered as abandoning the date and will lessen Carl's progress meter.
The girlfriend's date can also be ruined by not taking them home after five minutes of a date, even if the date went well.
Gaining a high wanted level will also simply ask the girl to be taken home regardless.
In order to maintain and increase the relationship status, Carl must date his girlfriend regularly, otherwise the status will decrease.
If one of the girlfriends is killed, they remain that way for the rest of the game, making it impossible to revive them without restarting.
Alternatively, CJ can evade the jealous girlfriend.
The criteria for having a jealous girlfriend appear are as follows: If any of the above criteria were broken at any point since the beginning of the game, jealous girlfriends will never appear, unless the save data is modified using external tools. An date in which a jealous girlfriend appears can be seen in this video. Claremont | John Craig | Mary Fortune | Frank Gold | Hammerfist | Philip K.
