Thanks to Carl Johnson and pdescobar for explaining their experiences in
having C.J. deal with jealous girlfriends.
I posted a message at GTA Forums asking if anyone had seen C.J. run into a
jealous girlfriend and what could trigger her appearance. According to an in-
formative and helpful response from pdescobar (who appears elsewhere in this
guide), this should work:
Have C.J. make two girlfriends, but not date the 1st one or collect any Oys--
ters. Load the same save game for each date with the 2nd one without saving
the game afterward, and "C.J. will probably run into the jealous girlfriend in
five to ten dates with her."
Here's his account of some things to look for when it happens:
"Imagine my surprise when I walk out of a restaurant in SF with Katie and
a cutscene shows me Denise in her Hustler and tells me I've been spotted
and have to lose her. It happened two or three more times in my testing
with other girls as well. The jealous girl's car has a red arrow marker
over top of it, and you have to drive quickly away and put enough distance
between the two cars for the game to tell you it's clear. If she catches
up to you, there's a confrontation where both girls make wisecracks, and,
after the jealous one leaves, the girl you were on a date with gets out of
your car and the date becomes a failure."
A couple of early choices are Katie, available at the start of the game, if in
an area that's off-limits until after "The Green Sabre," and Denise, available
after "Burning Desire."
While pdescobar had C.J. get Denise as a girlfriend but not start dating till
he dated Katie, Carl Johnson (who also appears elsewhere in this guide) had C.J.
brave the attacks brought on by going into the areas that are off-limits and
get Katie as a girlfriend 1st. If you try that, he recommends having C.J. get
"Armor, an M4 with lots of ammo, and a Shotgun with lots of ammo. If you get a
Rocket Launcher, you don't need the Shotgun so much. You get several seconds of
breathing space if you take out the helicopter and everybody who's shooting at
I'll add that part of the risk in having C.J. get a girlfriend in an off limit
area is that the girlfriend can be killed quickly by the storm of bullets sent
in C.J.'s direction, so I'd wait till later to have C.J. take her out on dates.
You might have C.J. get her as a girlfriend to see if she shows up on a date
with another girlfriend, though.
(Carl Johnson adds that if C.J. gets fat, he might finish a date with Katie by
telling her, "Hey! Put some weight on!")
This is the formula I used that worked for me pretty quickly:
I didn't have C.J. get any Oysters (just in case that makes a difference).
I had C.J. get Denise for a girlfriend after "Burning Desire" but not date
her. After "The Green Sabre," I had him get Katie (practicing t'ai chi on the
lawn of Avispa Golf Course) as a girlfriend. Each starts with a 15% Stat for
success in dating.
Several times, I had C.J. get Denise to come out of her house for a date then
had C.J. run off. Each time, a message said C.J. abandoned her, the date is
over, and the Stat for her dropped four or five percent. I did this till her
Stat reached zero, which makes it disappear from the Stats. A new Stat appears:
Number of Disastrous Dates. (You don't read that anyone brags about that one a
lot on the Gamefaqs message boards.)
(At this point, if you try my plan, you might want to wait till the SF save
houses can be bought and have C.J. buy one near Katie's house in NW SF. I was
in a hurry to test this and had C.J. do the Taxi mission, etc., in SF between
When I tried this, Katie always wanted a dinner date for her 1st several
dates, and C.J. took her to the diner N of her house. After the 1st one, they
got in his car, and after the message "She wants you to drive her home! This
could be it...," there was a picture of Denise's Hustler and the message:
"You've been spotted by another girlfriend. Quick--shake her off your tail!"
You're supposed to have C.J. drive his date away without letting the jealous
girlfriend's car get near his.
The jealous girlfriend's car is shown as a blip on the radar, but it wasn't
hard to know where Denise was. Her car came from the street above the E side
of the lot of the diner (where the vehicle exit is), right over the ledge, and
stopped beside C.J.'s car before he could turn it around. There was a brief
scene in which Denise insulted C.J. to Katie, and Katie insulted Denise: "Look--
a talking pig." Then both girlfriends disappeared. A message appeared: "You've
been discovered two-timing. Your date is over." The Stat for Katie dropped to
In the few times I tested this, Denise showed up after the 1st date or after
the 1st couple of dates.
To let C.J. succeed at this, I had him park by the diner with the car facing W
near the stairs on the W side of the diner parking lot. After C.J. took Katie
inside the diner, he drove her up the stairs to the street and her house.
After a success, you get the message: "You've managed to lose the jealous
girlfriend. Well done."
Carl Johnson had the jealous girlfriend show up when he used a similar strate-
gy. After he had C.J. abandon dates with Denise till his success rate with her
went down to zero, though, he had C.J. collect 50 Oysters. When C.J. dated
Katie, Denise showed up as the jealous girlfriend. And after C.J. dated Katie
till his success rate with her went up to about 35%, C.J. dated Denise and Katie
showed up as the jealous girlfriend.
I need help with this and it's hard to understand the method of how to trigger this. Can someone please help explain? I have all oysters already and I have 100% in all girlfriends except for Millie.
can someone post a video guide on how to do it or please help explain
