Girlfriends in GTA San Andreas girlfriends explained

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, there are six possible girlfriends for CJ to date, with two of them becoming girlfriends through the storyline. By taking them on dates which suit their preferences, you can unlock a variety of rewards - including vehicles, outfits, and benefits such as getting out of hospital for free, or keeping your equipment when busted.


While Denise Robinson is unlocked fairly early as a girlfriend during the 24th story quest "Burning Desire", Millie Perkins will take significantly more time, since she's unlocked during the 84th story quest, "Key To Her Heart".

Denise and Millie are unlocked during story missions.

The other girlfriends can be found during gameplay rather than being attached to missions, with Michelle Cannes, Katie Zhan, and Helena Wankstein becoming available to date once Flint County, Whetstone, and San Fierro are unlocked, and Barbara Schternvart becoming available once Tierra Robada, Bone County, and Las Venturas are unlocked.

Helena, Katie, Michelle and Barbara are found out in the world as opposed to completing certain missions.

GTA San Andreas girlfriend locations and schedule: Where to find girlfriends in GTA San Andreas

Each girlfriend needs to be first unlocked. With the exception of Denise and Millie, which you meet during quests, the rest can be found in specific places.

Once you're dating them, however, they will be in their own homes, following their independent schedules, which you must keep in mind if you want to take them on a date.

Denise Robinson Met during the quest “Burning Desire” Ganton Courts, Ganton, Los Santos
Millie Perkins Met during the quest “Key to Her Heart.” Prickle Pine, Las Venturas

Why is Millie is never home in GTA San Andreas?

One common issue is Millie going missing or is never home.

Millie is a key character to a series of quests involving the Four Dragons Casino. This will require you to date her numerous times in order to get a keycard from her. However, some players may notice that she may be missing from her home. This can happen due to a number of variants:

  • She may not be at home due to her schedule. She can be found between 12:00-22:00.
  • She may not be at home due to a bug, and you won't find her in her house at the right moment of the day. This can happen at any point in your relationship with her, try finishing a mission and check right after that, and it should be fixed eventually.

It's worth noting, you could also kill her on the first date. While this is effective for the questline, you will lose her as a girlfriend, so it's highly recommended to avoid this method entirely.

Where to date each girlfriend, likes and dislikes in GTA San Andreas

You can take your girlfriends into three different kinds of dates, which can be Food dates, Dance dates, or Driving dates. Each one has their own different tastes both in terms of activities, as well as CJ's physical appearance or fitness stats.


After several successful dates, Carl may be invited to the girlfriend's house for "coffee".
