Fallout 4 Sex & Romance Guide

Here's a guide on Sex and Romance in Fallout 4.

In order to begin a Romance with a companion, you’ll have to raise your Relationship Level with said companion to the Maximum, at which point you’ll unlock the options to “Flirt” & “Romance” with the companion in a dialog tree during your next conversation. – The first time you achieve this, you’ll unlock the “Loveable” achievement / trophy.

Which companions can be Romanced?: Only 7 of the 13 companions can be romanced, some for obvious reasons, I’m not even going to bother explaining that one. All Human companions except Deacon can be romanced. In addition, the Sole Survivor can also pursue a romance with the Synths Curie and Danse, and the Ghoul Hancock. — You can romance all companions at the same time, no one seems to mind! *shock* — Note that some companions are romance-able, regardless of your character’s gender. *wink wink*

Available for Romance are:
– Cait (Human female)
– Curie (Robot/Synth female)
– John Hancock (Ghoul male)
– Robert MacCready (Human male)
– Paladin Danse (Synth male)
– Piper Wright (Human female)
– Preston Garvey (Human male)

What influences your companion relationship: The chances of Romance can be improved if the companions like the Sole Survivor a lot, and increases their Relationship Level closer to the max, whatever species they are (it also increases the commands you can give them). This is influenced by how the Survivor approaches the quests and talks to other people.

As listed for each character in the overview below, you’ll want companions to see you as favorable as possible (go for their Likes and avoid their Dislikes listed below). For example: Protecting and being nice to Ghouls is something that will increase relationship status with Hancock.

Additionally, actions you perform in your settlement that has multiple companions stored in it can affect all companions at once. For example: Giving Mama Murphy drugs for telling you your future will be disliked by all companions in the settlement you’re in.

How to get all Romances in Fallout 4? The in-game actions for the Romance to happen are described in these detailed video guides.

The Romance options are listed in the videos in the order that they appear in chronological order.

Additionally: You can have one-night “romances” with hookers and others like for example this singer called Magnolia in Boston’s The Third Rail bar. Just keep talking about their main interest to steer the conversation to flirting & eventually go on a date with her.

Tip: Maximize your success by having Charisma 10, with a Beer and clean black suit for max Charisma.


Fun fact: You can get the human school teacher and the robot Miss Edna to get married if you encourage her to embrace love during your chats with her.
